Bible study 194 – Joshua 8Posted: April 16, 2017
Once Israel is sin-free, they attack Ai again. The warriors of Ai are lured out of the city, after which the Israelites burn it down, slaughter the warriors, and finally slaughter the civilians. After all this, they travel up a mountain and build an altar there on which “the law of Moses” is inscribed, as Moses ordered in Deuteronomy 27.
The total of those who fell that day, both men and women, was twelve thousand — all the people of Ai.
