Lesson 20 - Joshua and the Promised Land - Part 3

Synopsis

One of the more amazing Bible stories we learn as children is the battle of Jericho.  We even have a song to help us remember the event, "Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho, Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, and the walls came tumbling down."

Why is ths story one of such foundational understanding in our youth?  It certainly makes for great story telling.  It underscores the hand of God on the people of Israel and their new leader Joshua.  But does the archaeological record support such a story?

Join Mark Lanier for Part 3 of "Joshua and the Promised Land" as we explore the opinions, archaeological record, and evidence of this Old Testament account of history.  Through it all we will discover that nothing in the archaeological record destroys or proves our faith.
