A Special Allotment for Joshua


When they had finished distributing the several territories of the land as inheritances, the people of Israel gave an inheritance among them to Joshua the son of Nun. By command of the Lord they gave him the city that he asked, Timnath-serah in the hill country of Ephraim. And he rebuilt the city and settled in it.

These are the inheritances that Eleazar the priest and Joshua the son of Nun and the heads of the fathers’ houses of the tribes of the people of Israel distributed by lot at Shiloh before the Lord, at the entrance of the tent of meeting. So they finished dividing the land. Joshua 19:49-51.

Along with Caleb, Joshua was given a special inheritance. They were the two spies who had insisted that they could conquer the land when everyone else was moaning and complaining. They were the heros of faith in a generation of unbelief.
