S1 Episode 6: Joshua (Joshua, Judges, Ruth) #LongStoryShortOutline Overview:
  1. Victorious Rest – Joshua
  2. Cyclical Rebellion- Judges
  3. Hopeful Redemption – Ruth
Survey Overview:
As a group, give a survey of what you know about Joshua, Judges and Ruth. (Major plots, figures, and events.)
  1. Joshua 1:10-15 speaks of rest. Hebrews 4:8-11 speaks of rest. Compare and contrast these two passages. What kind of rest is being described?
  2. Discuss God’s judgment and mercy here with Jericho and Rahab. (Joshua 2:11-14 and Hebrews 11:30)
  3. Judges 2:6-10 describes the failure to train up the next generation. How can we avoid this today? Look at Deut. 6:1-15 for the explicit warnings and commands the people ended up ignoring in Judges.
  4. What is redemption? How is redemption pictured in the story of Ruth?
  5. What is so significant about the ending of Ruth? Ruth 4:18-22 (extra credit: who is Perez in verse 18? Why is he significant? Also, check out Matt. 1:2-6)
