God Gives the Victory

Answers Bible Curriculum 2nd Edition Unit 7 Lesson 67

This week in Sunday school, we continue in the book of Joshua by looking at two significant events during Israel’s conquest of Canaan: the defeat at Ai and the miraculous victory at Gibeon. After an astounding victory at Jericho, why was Israel suddenly defeated at little old Ai? How was it possible that the sun remained longer in the sky than usual during the battle of Gibeon? And what can we learn from these accounts about how seriously God treats sin among his people and about how God is mighty to bring victory? We’ll consider these questions and more!

Our main text for this lesson is Joshua 7:1-10:15.
