Joshua 1:16 Then they answered Joshua, “Whatever you have commanded us we will do, and wherever you send us we will go. 17 Just as we fully obeyed Moses, so we will obey you.” Hmmm… they “FULLY obeyed Moses?
Joshua 2: Spies meet Rahab. The same Rahab who became part of the lineage to King David and Jesus. Chosen. Faithful believer. Liar. Woman of circumstances and choices. Very interesting.
Joshua 3: Water piled up at Adam. Adam? “…the priests who carried the ark reached the Jordan and their feet touched the water’s edge, 16 the water from upstream stopped flowing. It piled up in a heap a great distance away, at a town called Adam.”
Joshua 5: 9 Then the LORD said to Joshua, “Today I have rolled away the reproach of Egypt from you.” So the place has been called Gilgal[c] to this day.
eww?
No more manna, from Exodus to after Revelation. Who wants to try some with me?
v 14: the Lords (Angelic) Army pushed the walls over like a kid’s toy building blocks. I bet that was kinda fun. Wonder whose job it was to hold up Rahab’s house? But I’m a chapter ahead of myself.
Joshua 10 The earth STOPPED SPINNING! Whoa, nellie!! And then it started again. God’s wobbly top.
Joshua 11 Rest from war.
Joshua 15:63 Judah could not dislodge the Jebusites. Hmmm.. after all the rest of the victories and total slaughter?
Joshua 16:10 They did not dislodge the Canaanites living in Gezer. Hmmm again.
Joshua 18 they cast lots for land, v 10 in the presence of the Lord. gambling?

Psalm 44 23 Awake, Lord! Why do you sleep? Rouse yourself! Do not reject us forever. 24 Why do you hide your face and forget our misery and oppression? 25 We are brought down to the dust; our bodies cling to the ground. 26 Rise up and help us; rescue us because of your unfailing love.

Psalm 48:1 Great is the LORD, and most worthy of praise, in the city of our God, his holy mountain. 2 Beautiful in its loftiness, the joy of the whole earth.

Proverbs 9- Wisdom (1-3) and folly (13-14) both have houses at the highest point in the city. Interesting.

Luke 17 Mulberries are delicious to me, but I like Strawberries and Cherries better. I wonder if Jesus didn’t like mulberries or if he just used it as an object lesson, like the fig tree that was supposed to have fruit and didn’t so he withered it.
Luke 18:‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’ signed, Michael
Luke 19: 7 All the people saw this and began to mutter, “He has gone to be the guest of a sinner.” So let’s follow this example? Sinners need a savior, not the (self) righteous. The (self) righteous can save themselves.
40 “I tell you,” he replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.” Ar we not praising enough? Let’s praise more, and see whether the rocks stop crying out.
Jesus cleansed the Temple and told them to stop selling their stuff inside. Nothing wrong with having a sacrifice to offer, but I think there was a little profitteering going on here, or He wouldn’t have called it a den of thieves. Maybe they should have sold their wares at a discount instead of a profit, for the needy who traveled so far they coudn’t bring a sacrifice.
Luke 20: Jesus tells a riddle, a joke, a riddle and a woe. Whoa.
Luke 21: A woman gives her all. Jesus promises earthquakes and tidal waves. It’s just the beginning of the end-times, we’re not done yet.
Luke 22: Council of elders, chief priests, and teachers of the law: Are you the Son of God? Jesus: You said it. Amen.
