Ok, alright, ok, alright … stick with me here. So Joshua and the battle of Jericho. It’s a really familiar story. We usually read it at face value, without any awareness of ancient historiography (fancy! it means how people record history) or archaeology (like Indiana Jones, but way more boring; archaeologists mainly just dig, really strategically and carefully, in the dirt to recover artifacts of the ancient past). In this talk, Josh pulls back the curtain on what this story is doing in its ancient context.
