Week 2- Unit 7, Session 4 Achan’s Sin and the Defeat of Ai

Bible passage: Joshua 7–8

Main point: God punished Achan for his sin. Then God fought for His people at Ai.

The punishment for Achan’s sin was death. It seems harsh, but the Bible says that the wages of sin is death. (Romans 6:23) Because we sin, we deserve to die too. Jesus came to die in our place. When we confess our sins and trust in Jesus, we are forgiven and saved from spiritual death.

Week 3- Unit 7, Session 5: Joshua’s Final Encouragement

Bible passage: Joshua 23:1–24:28

Main point: Joshua encouraged the people to worship God alone.

As Joshua prepared for his own death, he left a legacy of obedience to God. After Jesus’ death and resurrection, He appeared to the disciples and left them with a legacy: to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything Jesus commanded. (Matthew 28:19-20)

Week 4- Unit 9, Session 1: The First Judges

Bible passage: Judges 3:7-31

Main point: God’s people turned from Him to worship idols.

The judges saved the people from the consequences of their sin, but not the cause of it. God’s plan was to one day send a true Deliverer—Jesus, His own Son—to be the King of His people. Jesus saves people from sin forever.
