Israel in Trouble
Israel’s Defeat (vv1-9)
Israel’s Guilt (vv10-15)
Israel’s Transgressor (vv16-26)
Questions for Reflection and Discussion
- What are Joshua’s concerns after this defeat (7:6-9)? Do God’s concerns differ (7:10-15)?
- Joshua urged Achan to “give glory to the Lord” by admitting his crime (7:19). How does confession glorify God? Why do you think many of us don’t experience horror over our own sins?
- Achan brought trouble on the Israelites (7:25). Thirty-six Israelite soldiers had already died because of Achan’s sin. How might our sins affect others?
- What do we learn when we compare Achan the Israelite, and Rahab the foreigner?
