Joshua is a medium sized book with 24 chapters that divide into 4 parts.
Part 1 is about Joshua finally leading the Israelites across the Jordan river and into Canaan – the Promised Land!
And once again, God parts the waters so they can walk through on dry land!
With the fishes just starin’ at ‘em!
Not this time! The book of Joshua says the waters of the Jordan River were blocked about 20 miles upstream from the Israelites, so for sure no fish could watch them cross.
Oh. That’s too bad.
What’s interesting is that the place the Bible says the waters were stopped is a place where giant mud slides sometimes block the whole river! The last time this happened was in 1927, and the Jordan River was completely blocked for 20 hours!
Wow! So God might have used a mud slide to help the Israelites cross the river!
CHUCK WAGGIN (singing)
Mud slide! Mud slide! God can use you as a guide! Help me to the other side! Mud slide!
Hey! I’m the one singin’!
Sorry! It looked fun!!
