Moses had given no inheritance to the tribe of Levi, for the Lord, the God of Israel, was their inheritance ! In Chapters , Joshua reminds the Israelites all the gifts the Lord has given them, and then remarks in "But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.
Reality was overrated anyway.
God assures Joshua He will be with him This theme is developed as Joshua is compared to Moses , and repeats many of his actions throughout the Book. Joshua is a leader without hesitation, and is portrayed as the ideal leader of Israel, a prototype for the future Kings of Israel, one who keeps the teaching of Moses in its entirety , Once they had entered the Promised Land, the manna stopped The dramatic conquest of Jericho takes place in Joshua 6.
He encourages the people to keep God's Commandments in Joshua He renews the Covenant in Chapter God fulfilled his promises to the people; Joshua warned the Israelites to remain obedient to the Covenant if they wished to retain the blessing of the land. The interesting figure of Rahab the harlot is introduced in Chapter 2.
A prostitute and innkeeper, her place was located in the city wall. She hid Joshua's spies from the King of Jericho, and in turn survived the conquest of the city. Even though she had a sinful past, her great faith in the Lord gave her a significant role in Israelite history. She is recognized in Matthew as an ancestor of David, and is only one of two women recorded among famous persons of faith in the Letter to the Hebrews The Book of Joshua is dramatic and contains three well-known miracle-filled episodes of the Lord, with Joshua leading the Israelites: the crossing of the Jordan River ; the circling of the city walls with the Ark of the Covenant in the battle of Jericho ; and the day the sun stood still when Joshua defeated Adonizedek the King of Jerusalem and four other Amorite Kings in the battle at Gibeon Joshua One first hears of Joshua the son of Nun in Exodus when Moses called upon him to engage in battle.

The Lord mentions Joshua's name in Exodus Moses recounts in Deuteronomy that the Lord instructed him to "commission Joshua, and encourage and strengthen him, for he will lead this people across and will cause them to inherit the land that you will see. The Book of Joshua in its entirety is a prophecy of the spiritual conquest of the world through Jesus the Messiah. The name Joshua is formed from the root of the Hebrew word for "salvation. Both Joshua and Jesus mean the same - "the Lord saves.
King James I commissioned a group of Biblical scholars in to establish an authoritative translation of the Bible from the ancient languages and other translations at the time, and the work was completed in The original King James Bible included the Apocrypha but in a separate section. A literary masterpiece of the English language, the original King James Bible is still in use today. Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
And they went, and came into an harlot's house, named Rahab, and lodged there. And it shall be, when the LORD hath given us the land, that we will deal kindly and truly with thee. And she sent them away, and they departed: and she bound the scarlet line in the window. And they took up the ark of the covenant, and went before the people. Wherefore the name of the place is called Gilgal unto this day.
And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my lord unto his servant? She yearns to trust Sieh, the godling she loves.

Can they stand together against the chaos that threatens? This is the concluding book to a trilogy that ended up being a favorite of mine in Sieh has always been my favorite of the immortals throughout the trilogy, which means I was ecstatic that almost the entirety of the book was from his viewpoint.
One scene that particulalry demonstrates the desperateness at which Sieh clings to his childhood is when he grabs Shahar and they start jumping on the bed, even though they are physically teenagers and supposed to be past such frivolity.

And yet the fact that Sieh has been altered in this manner such that he can no longer be the god of childhood makes perfect sense, given that life and existence necessitate change — it is what defines each of those two concepts. Everyone, from humans to Gods, are at the mercy of change. Thus, in becoming mortal and growing to become a new person, he is following an inevitable path he could never have escaped. Still, the way in which he was forced to grow up and finally become old broke my heart.

I will say, the summary on the back of the book somewhat occupies the realm of misleading advertising, as it suggests that Shahar and Sieh will be the main pairing, which was a reasonable expectation given that the previous two books centered around a couple. A third of the way through, I realized that Sieh, Shahar, and Deka would end up in a three-way relationship paralleling Nahadoth, Itempas, and Yeine.

Her brother Deka was less intriguing as a character, but he still had a significant part to play in the proceedings. I thought it was too big a stretch to believe that Deka had been in love with Sieh since he first met him as a child. One of the excellent things about this trilogy has always been the mythology. In terms of what I wrote about earlier about change being integral to life, I loved how this played out within the mythology.
The God Child: The Shahar Chronicles: Iddan Trilolgy 3
The entire universe was the result of the Maelstrom, a powerful force beyond comprehension, spitting out the first three Gods, from whom godlings, demons, and mortals are descended from or created by. Change and luck created the universe, but each god, godling, and human has their own nature that must be true to. As such, it was really cool that the author explored how a nature could change and still retain remnants of what it once was. And that extended to the rest of the events in the book. This book was a great ending to a wonderful trilogy.
