With this volume, the Me'Am Lo'ez series begins its commentary on the second section of the Bible-the Prophets. Of these books, the Book of Joshua is unique in that, as the Talmud states: "Had the Jewish people not sinned, they would have received only the Five Books of Moses and the Book of Joshua." In this sense, this book is a completion of the Torah. It tells of the fulfillment of G-d's promise to Abraham, "To your descendants I have given this land" Had the Jews proceeded faithfully in their holy mission, the Bible, at this point, would have been complete. Lest anyone think that the Book of Joshua is little more than a historical account of military stratagems and the division of the spoils among the victors, the Me'Am Lo'ez Anthology reveals the true nature of the conquest: a spiritual triumph of the first order! Drawing from a broad spectrum of sources, this volume shows how not only the overt miracles which G-d performed-halting the flow of the Jordan, opening the earth to swallow the walls of Jericho, suspending the sun at midday-but everything-from the successful sending of spies and the setting of ambushes to the assignment of a portion for each tribe-was accomplished through the guiding hand of the Almighty.
