E17: Joshua A - The Mythic Model

The Bible in 30 Seconds or Less

It begins with Joshua son of Nun being described according to the criteria of the Deuteronomist: meditating on the law of Moses day and night and refusing to turn either to the right or to the left. He leads an unusually obedient nation of Israel in a brutal Holy War against the indigenous peoples of a land they believe God has set aside for them, culminating in Joshua distributing the land and renewing a covenant like an idealized king -the mythic model for the scions of the House of David.
