Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

March 12 - Evening

“Joshua, by then a very old man, summoned all Israel—their elders, leaders, judges and officials—and said to them:

'I am very old. You yourselves have seen everything the Lord your God has done to all these nations for your sake; it was the Lord your God who fought for you… Now I am about to go the way of all the earth. You know with all your heart and soul that not one of all the good promises the Lord your God gave you has failed. Every promise has been fulfilled; not one has failed.”
- Joshua 23:1-3, 14

Joshua Presents Evidence of God's Faithfulness to the Younger Leaders    

Joshua’s last words to the people he had led are public statements that confirm:

  1. “the Lord your God…fought for you”  
  2. “not one of all the good promises the Lord your God gave you has failed.”

Since all of Israel has both seen the battle and received the promises they “know with all their heart and soul” that the Lord has been faithful.

So, Joshua at a very old age, probably close to the age of his death at 110, called the elders, leaders, judges and officials of Israel together and forced them to consider the evidence. Joshua made the leaders recognize and admit that the Lord had fought for them and that the Lord had kept his promise. These facts and experiences provided logical reasons for Israel’s continued faithfulness to the Lord and motivation for their obedience to his will.

Joshua’s statement, “Now I am about to go the way of all the earth,” is his accepted understanding of the fate of all men under the penalty of sin. The ultimate manifestation of the sin nature in all human flesh will prevail until the time of the resurrection from the dead.

  Christian Quote from Church History

"I think that the church in America today is so obsessed with being practical, relevant, helpful, successful, and perhaps well-liked that it nearly mirrors the world itself. Aside from the packaging, there is nothing that cannot be found in most churches today that could not be satisfied
by any number of
secular programs and
self-help groups." 
- Michael Horton

Something to Ponder??
When Gregory became Pope in 590 AD the raiding Anglo-Saxons had driven the British Christians into Brittany, Cornwall and Wales. Gregory planned to evangelize the Anglo-Saxon who had occupied the Christian's territory of England by buying Anglian slave-boys (taken from the Anglo-Saxon) and put them in monasteries for training. In 596 Gregory sent forty of these monks back into England and founded a type of school that was a combination of a public school/seminary.
Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Angelos (Gr) – Messenger and Angel (Eng) – angelos is a Greek word that means “a messenger” and “one sent.” In Matthew 11:10 and Mark 1:2 angelos refers to John the Baptist as the messenger. Spiritual angelos could be sent by God and called “angels” as in Hebrews 1:14. Or, angelos could be sent by Satan as in 2 Corinthians 12:7.


In Luke 24:13 Emmaus is described as being “60 stadia” (or, 7 miles) from Jerusalem, but other ancient manuscripts record “160 stadia” (18.4 miles) in the same verse. Scholars agree that “60 stadia” is the correct reading. This textual opinion agrees with the context that says the disciples who made this walk from Jerusalem to Emmaus turned around and went back to Jerusalem immediately after they ate a noon meal in Emmaus. So, besides the witness of the text, it would seem the context would support a 14 mile walk there and back in one day, instead of a 37 mile walk in one day. With this information it would appear that the location of ancient Emmaus is
el-Qubeibeh 7 miles northwest of Jerusalem. A village from the time of Jesus (30 AD)
has been excavated at
el-Qubeibeh. The text, the context and the archaeological evidence supports el-Qubeibeh as a possible location of the Emmaus where Jesus appeared to the believers.
