Day 17 – Joshua 15 – Judges 3
“Not one word of all the good promises that the Lord had made to the house of Israel had failed; all came to pass.” Joshua 21:45 ESV
They did it! All the promises God had made to Israel about the possession of the land had come to be at last! Fulfilled! Done! This is a significant theological point as we consider eschatological implications. (End-times stuff.) The promises regarding the land happened and were complete! Now they are entering the era where it is about keeping the land or not. (Spoiler alert: they don’t keep it.) Next up is an age of promise to David that a king, one of his offspring, will sit on the throne forever. Now that’s a strange type of king.
