Joshua 15Vs 1-12

Page 3: Joshua 15a

Joshua 15 13 And unto Caleb the son of Jephunneh he gave a part among the children of Judah, according to the Commandment of the Lord to Joshua, even the city of ArbaArba the father of Anak, which city is HebronHebron.


Page 4: Joshua 15a

As we learned last week, Caleb was not born into

the Tribe of Judah.


How did he obtain land in the midst of Judah?

Page 5: Joshua 15a

Numbers 13 30 And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at onceLet us go up at once, and possess possess itit; for we are well able to overcome itwe are well able to overcome it.


Forty-five years earlier, when the ten spies had come back scared, saying, "We can't."

Page 6: Joshua 15a

Proverbs 18 21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.


Matthew 12 34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. 35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.

Page 7: Joshua 15a

Romans 12 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, Will of God.


Page 8: Joshua 15a

14 And Caleb drove thence the three sons of Anak -- Sheshai, and Ahiman, and Talmai, the children of Anak. 15 And he went up thence to the inhabitants of Debir: and the name of Debir before was Kirjath-sepher.


Faith is notnot apathetic.

Faith doesn't just talkjust talk.

Faith is notnot fearful.

Faith movesmoves with God.

Page 10: Joshua 15a

16 And Caleb said, He that smiteth Kirjath-sepher, and taketh it, to him will I give Achsah my daughter to wife. 17 And Othniel the son of Kenaz, the brother of Caleb, took it: and he gave him Achsah his daughter to wife.


Page 11: Joshua 15a

18 And it came to pass, as she came unto him, that she moved him to ask of her father a field:

{Apparently, he wouldn't do it.}

and she lighted off her ass;

{Probably kneeling before her daddy}

and Caleb said unto her, What wouldest thou?


A daddy's heart would be tender toward his daughter on her wedding day.

She's moving to the mountains, married to her first cousin.

Page 12: Joshua 15a

19 Who answered, Give me a blessing; for thou hast given me a south land; give me also springs of water.


"Dad, you've given me land but no water."

"Give me that other field too, with springs of water."

19b And he gave her the upper springs, and the nether (lower) springs.

Page 13: Joshua 15a

Matthew 7 11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in Heaven give good things to them that ask him?


Luke 11 9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. 10 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Page 14: Joshua 15a

Vs 20-62 lists a multitude of the cities that were occupied by the Tribe of Judah.


Two exceptionsTwo exceptions:

They did not drive the Jebusites out of JerusalemJerusalem.

BethlehemBethlehem is not even mentioned.

Either there was no one there at that time, or it was so smallso small it was not worthy of mention.

Page 15: Joshua 15a

Joshua 15 63 As for the Jebusites the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the children of Judah could not drive them out: but the Jebusites dwell with the children of Judah at Jerusalem unto this day.


God had said, "I will drive them out."

If they had stepped out with faith in Godfaith in God, they wouldwould have driven the Gibeonites

out of Jerusalem.

Page 16: Joshua 15a


But they were contentcontent to let them dwell there.

Perhaps because they were afraidafraid to attack.

Perhaps they saw no harmsaw no harm.

In the words of Rodney King,

"Can't we all just get along?"

Page 17: Joshua 15a

Let usLet us be like Caleb, Othniel, and Achsah,

A family of believers who actedwho acted on their faith.
