Joshua
The Israelites arrive at the Promise Land. They must invade it andtake it over.
Scoping Out the Enemy (2:1-24) – Before he leads the Israelites intoCanaan, Joshua has two spies go out to check out Jericho. Rahab (aprostitute) tells them that the Jerichoians are afraid of an Israeliinvasion. They heard all the stories about their escape from Egypt andthey know that they have gone undefeated. The spies return to theirboss Joshua and tell the people that “We're sure the Lord has given usthe whole country, the people there shake with fear every time theythink of us.” 
Crossing in Style (3:1-17) - The Israelites invade the Promise Land.Their invasion is lead by the Priests that carry the Ark of the Covenant(sacred chest containing the 10 commandments). When they stepinto the Jordan River, the river itself comes to a stop. The town of Adam (20 miles to the north) is flooded, and it stays that way untilthe Israelites cross the river. They enter the Promised Land the sameway they left Egypt – God cleared the way by sweeping aside a river(just like the Red Sea).
Breakthrough at Jericho (6:1-27) – After walking 5 miles across theriver, they encounter their first enemies. The Jerichoians believe theyare safe because of the city's huge walls. They felt so safe, that theirarmy did nothing but waltz around the city for 6 days. On the 7
th
day,the walls collapse, and they no longer laugh at the protection theyonce had. The next battle, the Israelites lose. Achan (a soldier of theIsraelites) becomes greedy and helps himself to around 5 lbs of Silver,one pound of Gold, and a fancy robe imported the area that is nowIraq. As the Israelites lose the battle, Achan dies. After that battle,the Israelites win and sweep south, then turn north.
All the Time (literally) In the World (10:1-28) – Joshua finds out thatarmies from 5 cities, (including Jerusalem and Hebron) have campedat the hills of Gibeon (15 miles to the west). He ordes an uphill marchthe entire night. As the battle is extended hour after hour, Joshuaasks God to extend the day (and days to come) so that maybe he cangive Israel time to finish off the enemy. The result is the sun standingstill and not going down for about an entire day. After a long time, theenemy gives in and runs away. They reach a mountain pass about 5miles away and God sends a huge hail storm. “More of the enemysoldiers died from the hail than the Israelite Weapons”.
