Joshua 3—4 and the Trinity

Joshua 3:1–4:24 (ESV)

1 Then Joshua rose early in the morning and they set out from Shittim. And they came to the Jordan, he and all the people of Israel, and lodged there before they passed over.

What does Joshua 3-4 reveal about who God the Father is?

  • The Lord is the living God. He is not a figment of our imagination.

  • The Lord is in control of nature. He is not uninvolved in this world. He controls creation. He can cause water to stop flowing.

  • The Lord is in control of history. He is powerful to bring his people into the land of promise. He will do what he has promised. He brings fear on the Canaanites.
