Jericho

Reading through the Bible – Day 24 of 1oo.

A lot of people haven’t heard the story about an incident that happened just before Israel crossed over the Jordan river and conquered the city of Jericho.

A few days before, Joshua sent out some scouts to see if there was an easy way to cross the river.  A city guard from Jericho was on the other side observing the Israelite scouts  going up and down the water’s edge to figure out how to cross.  The guard could also see the huge mass of people far off in the Israel camp and figured out what was about to happen.

As the Israelite scouts spotted the guard across the river, they shouted over “Hey!  How do we get to the other side of the river?!”

Thinking for a moment, the man from Jericho shouted back “You’re already on the other side!”.
