Tuesday is for Preaching
Translated chapter one.
Collected the commentaries I will utilize:
- Hess, Tyndale OT Commentary
- Keil in the K and D Commentary: Joshua
- Herzog, Battles of the Bible
- Gaebelein, in Expositor’s Bible Commentary Series.
- Howard, Joshua New American Commentary Series
- Younger, Eerdman Bible Commentary pp. 174-189 (still need to copy these pages when I am at the library)
Will utilize Anchor Bible commentary by Boling and Wright when I am on campus for issues that these six don’t solve. Glad I have Logos software to help with translations and parsing. My own exegetical study guide (See Radical Church Planting in mid August for the downloadable workbook) is already very helpful for my translation and study notes.
- Joshua 1:1-18
- Joshua 2:1-24
- Joshua 3:1-5:1
- Joshua 5:2-12
- Joshua 5:12-6:8
This week will be taken up with all the final preparations for my son’s wedding on Saturday and the before and after-wedding festivities with family in town. I’ll begin studying the Hebrew text and the “brooding process” over the text on Tuesday August 3. Looking forward to refreshing Hebrew skills.
Will begin praying 1:7-9 into my spirit Tuesday June 27.
Only be strong and very courageous, being careful to do according to all that Moses my servant commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may have good success wherever you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then your will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
