In the book of Joshua, the Israelites are lead by Joshua into the land of Canaan over the Jordan River.

Joshua had experienced slavery in Egypt, deliverance by God and the leadership of Moses. He was driven to get the Israelites to Canaan, as God had promised this land to them.

Through Joshuas' leadership the Israelites conquer and claim their promised land.

Joshua reminds the people that they must obey the Lord and His word.
