    It takes courage to forgive and take risks in relationships. Centuries later though, a king named Josiah rediscovered the Scriptures and called the people together to have them read aloud. Possessing the land is here understood in terms of entering the fullness of the Christian life. The mysterious Book of Jude also describes a phenomenon noted in some anesthetic patients with near-death experiences: "They are like wild waves of the sea, foaming up their shameless deeds, wandering stars for whom the gloom of darkness has been reserved forever. Joshua was a man of courage. The importance of preaching and teaching are easy enough to understand, but what about the public reading of Scripture?

    Harper One, San Francisco, Second Peter notes that God bestows on us life and godliness, that living a virtuous life will ensure our calling and election to eternal life with Christ. When we do God's work in God's way, we experience success. This led to a generation that did not know God. It takes courage to stand up to sin in this world. There follow sections on Joshua as part of traditions, that is, those literary traditions found by source-criticism to lie behind the present form of the book, and also ancient Near Eastern forms, such as conquest narratives.

    He knew the words of God and he did not turn to the left or the right, away from them. Joshua fixed his eyes on the promises of God rather than fearing the obstacles of the enemy. But as much as these can be a great blessing, they can also do great damage if used incorrectly. We do not use the Bible to prove what we want it to say.
