JOSHUA: Servant of the Lord

JOSHUA: Servant of the Lord is a Bible-based, biographical and exegetical study of Joshua, the man and his book. The first two sessions will be introductory and foundational. "Introduction: Joshua, the Man" will overview what the Bible outside the book of Joshua reveals about Joshua and his life. "Introduction: Joshua the Book" will overview the background, contents and major teachings of the sixth book of the Bible. Subsequent sessions will focus on passages from the book of Joshua to examine major events of Joshua’s life and ministry, which earned for him the appellation "the Servant of the Lord.” Duplicated Session Outlines will be provided and study sessions will be enhanced with projected charts, maps, images, etc.
