Notes & Transcripts


Another summons of the tribes of Israel by Joshua, who obeyed it, and presented themselves before the Lord at Shechem,  #Jos 24:1;

ASK #1.

Shechem was the place where the Lord first appeared to Abraham, when he brought him into the land of Canaan, and where he made a promise of giving the land to his seed, and where Abraham built an altar to him,  #Ge 12:6,7;

Where also Jacob pitched his tent when he came from Padanaram, bought a parcel of a field, and erected an altar to the Lord,  #Ge 33:18-20;

Joshua in the name of the Lord rehearsed to them the many great and good things the Lord had done for them, from the time of their ancestor Abraham to that day, #Jos 24:2-13;

ASK #2.

Joshua then exhorted them to fear and serve the Lord, and reject idols,  #Jos 24:14-15;

ASK #3.

Joshua put them upon making their choice, whether they would serve the true God, or the gods of the Canaanites; and they choosing the former, he advised them to abide by their choice, #Jos 24:16-24;

ASK #4 (note Ex 19:8 and Ex 24:3, then Ex 32 - the Golden Calf) AND #5. (Note vs 23.  What are our private idols?)

Joshua made a covenant with them to that purpose, and then dismissed them,  #Jos 24:25-28;

ASK #6.

The chapter concludes with an account of the death and burial of Joshua and Eleazar, and of the interment of the bones of Joseph,  #Jos 24:29-33.

Joshua lived to be 110 (Moses 120, Joseph 110)
