Unit 7 Overview

BACK TO THE LAND
When the next generation of God’s people, led by Joshua, returned back to the land of Canaan, God reminded them of His promises and that all of His words are true. Joshua and the Israelites would need to remember God’s Word, trust it, and live in obedience to it if they were to conquer the land.

Unit 6 Overview

AWAY FROM THE LAND
Unit Description: When God’s people arrived at the border of the promised land, they did the unthinkable: they disbelieved God’s faithfulness and disobeyed His command by refusing to enter. As a result, God forced His people away from the land to wander in the wilderness where they continued in their disbelief and sin against a good, loving, and holy God.

Big Picture Question: What is God like? God is holy, good, and loving.

Scripture Memory Verse: Exodus 15:11

    Who is like you, majestic in holiness,
    awesome in glorious deeds, doing wonders?
