Historical books

  • Joshua [Jozua (NL)]
    The entry of the Israelites into Canaan and their conquest of it under their leader Joshua.
    Their conquest and division of the land under the leadership of Joshua.
    Serving God in the land.
    The story of the campaigns of the Israelites in central, southern and northern Canaan and their destruction of their enemies is followed by thestory of the division of the conquered land among the twelve tribes. The story contains speeches by God and Joshua commanding the conquest and at the end warning of the need for faithful obedience of the Law (torah) revealed to Moses.
    Almost all scholars agree that the book of Joshua holds little historical value for early Israel and most likely reflects a much later period.
    Rather than being written as history, the Deuteronomistic history - Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Samuel and Kings - was intended to illustrate a theological scheme in which Israel and her leaders are judged by their obedience to the teachings and laws (the covenant) set down in the book of Deuteronomy.
    Further information:
  • Judges [Rechters (NL)]
