Joshua & the

Battle of Jericho

Welcome to week 14!

This week the children learn about Joshua and the Battle of Jericho. Jericho was a heavily guarded city with strong walls and they Israelites thought it would be impossible to take over the city. But with God’s help they brought down the walls without a fight! This story shows the children God’s great power. They also learn that we always win when God fights our battles, and we need to listen to and follow God’s instructions.

Have fun with this great story!

If you haven’t read the introduction to Bible Time yet, I recommend you read the outline about the Bible lessons for children first.
