“As I was with Moses, so I will be with you.” (Joshua 1:5) This is God’s promise to Joshua, but through the book of Joshua it becomes clear that this was also His promise to Israel and, fulfilled in Christ, His promise to us. More than mere history, Joshua is a narrative theology that directly propagates the covenant in salvation history. Dr. Harstad employs a historical-grammatical method in this original translation, and he pursues what he considers the grand theme of Joshua; The Lord fulfills His promises to the land of Israel. He also considers Joshua as a sort of parallel to Acts, both being narrative histories about the continuation of the Church after the paradigm shifts of Moses’ death and Christ’s ascension.
