For Reflection and Discussion
- God sometimes gave Israel victory in battle through normal means. Why do you think he chose to use a miracle to defeat Jericho?
- How did the Israelites demonstrate faith in God in their battle against Jericho?
- Does it seem unjust for God to command the destruction of Jericho? Why or why not?
