Lesson 1: Leading the People

Readings: Joshua 1: 1-11

Lesson 2: Spying the Land

Readings: Joshua 2: 1-24

Joshua had once been a spy himself. He had explored the land of Canaan almost forty years ago, and now he wants an up-to-date report of what the situation is. When Joshua had been sent as a spy, he had 11 companions.

Lesson 3: Crossing the River

Lesson 4: Obeying the Lord
