Bible study 191 – Joshua 5Posted: April 13, 2017
Although circumcision for all males over 8 years of age was prescribed in Genesis, the descendants of the Israelites who left Egypt have for some reason not been circumcised yet. Joshua corrects the matter, just in time for passover.
Joshua also meets a mysterious figure who calls himself “commander of the army of the Lord”, but he never appears again in the entire Bible.
… “Make flint knives and circumcise the Israelites a second time.”
