Sunday School Lesson 303 Joshua and Israel Destroy Jericho

Lesson: 303 Lesson Name: Destruction of Jericho
Theme: Grace: God's Undeserved Favor

Reading: Joshua 5:13-15; 6:1-27

Memory Verse: Heb. 11:31
Memory Verse Text: By faith Rahab perished not with them.

Talking Points:

Point 1: God revealed Himself to Joshua in order to fill his mind with the greatness and holiness of the One who was the True Leader of His people.
Point 2: Even though the proposed strategy was strange to a human's way of thinking, it was the Lord who directed the battle.  In fact, the Lord had declared the victory before the battle even started.  Application: When God is with us, there is no doubt about the outcome, the outcome is victory!
Point 3: Notice: 1) The order of the people, 2) Their silence, and 3) Their unity.  The Jericho walls literally fell into the earth when the people shouted in order that they could go straight forward into the city.  The treasures of Jericho were to be for God and the rest was to be utterly destroyed.  Application: God's value of earthly things is far different than ours.
Point 4: Every detail of the spies' promise to Rahab was kept.  In addition, she was brought into the godly line as seen in Joseph's geneology; "Rachab" is mentioned in Matthew 1:5.
