Joshua 11: Joshua conquers modern day Israel


More kings rise up against him. A great battle takes place next to the waters of Merom. Joshua wins. He takes all the major cities, kills everyone it them and basically takes over the entire area we now know as Israel. Once this was done, the wars were apparently over.

Favorite part:

It has to be the geography. I can see these places on a map and you can basically chart the campaign if you like. A bit geeky, but whatever.

Least favorite bit:

Again, do they have to kill everyone and leave no one left breathing?

Moral Lesson:

Same as chapter 10 – brutal dictators are brutal.
