B334 / Joshua
3 Credit Hours
This is a 3 credit hour, undergraduate level course, and it can be applied to the Diploma of Ministry, Associate of Christian Ministry Degree or a Bachelor of Christian Ministry Degree.
This course on the book of Joshua, takes the student through the fascinating events & spiritual truths revealed in this time period of Israel’s journey with God.
We are living in an age where all those professing Christ do not accept the Bible as being the inspired Word of God. This is true regarding the book of Joshua.
Two commentaries, JOSHUA – An Introduction & Commentary, from the Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries series [which is the primary commentary], and JOSHUA – Inheriting the Land, from the International Theological Commentary series [which is a supplemental commentary], were used for this course.
The Tyndale commentary reflects the conservative interpretation of the book of Joshua while the International Theological Commentary reflects a more liberal interpretation of the book. CBCS holds to a conservative theological position but books reflecting other views are used to expose students to what others teach because sooner or later students will be coming into contact with those who do not share conservative interpretation of the scriptures. Through the use of these two textbooks, students will become grounded more firmly in conservative interpretation of scripture and will have a better understanding of liberal interpretation while living in a pluralistic society.
Articles from the NEW UNGER’S BIBLE DICTIONARY, NELSON’S ILLUSTRATED BIBLE DICTIONARY and the HOLMAN BIBLE DICTIONARY are provided to give a deeper insight into the conservative interpretation of the book of Joshua.
Study questions for this course are taken from the book of Joshua and are based on the King James Version and the New King James Version of the Bible. A few answers may be found in Bible dictionaries and commentary materials.
