Lesson 2 Joshua: Lessons from the Promised Land "The Two Witnesses"

Lesson 2: “The Two Witnesses” (13:09)

In lesson 2, we follow the narrative of Joshua, as the Israelites' new leader sends two men to spy out the city of Jericho. Listen as Patti tells how the harlot, Rahab, protects the “two witnesses” and saves her own life and the life of her family as well.


Joshua 1 and 2, Hebrews 11:31, 2 Peter 3:15, Numbers 13


  1. Why do you think the two “spies” are more accurately described as “witnesses” from God’s point of view? What parallel can be made from this story and the story of Lot in Sodom?

  2. How encouraging is it to you that Jesus, as the Commander of the Lord’s Army, took the time to make sure Rahab was protected before destroying Jericho?

  3. How does this story encourage us to be patient and wait on God’s timing?

  4. Why do you think, this time, the “spies” brought back a good report and the people were ready to go into the land, as opposed to the report of the spies 38 years ago?

5. If we are moving into the Promised Land of our faith, we are going to be following Jesus into battles, too. What lessons can we learn from the Israelites about their willingness to do this, and also how and why to enter battles with Him as he directs?

Activity: Watch this 6 minute drama for a review of what happened with the 12 spies, 38 years earlier. (Numbers 13).
