An Audio Bible Adventure: A New Leader and His Undercover Agents

A retelling of Deuteronomy 34 and Joshua 1 and 2

When Moses reached the plains of the Jordan River, he knew that his time had come. He had already given his final words and blessings to the twelve tribes of Israel and had chosen Joshua to lead the children of Israel after him. Now Moses stood alone atop the windy heights of Mount Nebo overlooking the plains where God showed him the whole land across Jordan, saying, "This is the land I promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob when I said, 'I will give it to your descendants.' I have let you see it with your eyes, but you will not cross over into it."

An Audio Bible Adventure: There Are Giants in the Land!

A retelling of Numbers chapters 13–14; Deuteronomy 1:19–46; 9:1–3; and Joshua 11:21–23; 14:6–15; 15:13–17.

Many months had passed since the children of Israel had left Egypt and were now camped at Kadesh-Barnea in the desert. Just a few miles to the north lay the hills of the Promised Land. Moses called the people together and said, “We have reached the land which the Lord our God has promised to give us, so go up and take possession of it as the Lord told you. Do not be afraid!”

The elders of Israel were unsure that they could do it and said, “Let us send men to spy out the land first. They can bring back a report about the route we are to take and the towns we will come to.”

Despite the elders’ lack of faith, God agreed to their plan and told Moses, “Choose a leader from each of the twelve tribes and send them to explore the land of Canaan.”

A retelling of Exodus 17

See “The Plagues of Egypt” and “Walking Through the Sea” for earlier parts of the story of Moses and the children of Israel.

At one time when the Amalekites—a fierce nomadic people who lived in the Sinai Desert—swooped down to make war with the wandering tribes of Israel, Moses summoned Joshua to his side.

“Choose some men and go out and fight the Amalekites,” said Moses. “Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff of God in my hands.”
