Question 2

    Joshua 1 : 1 – 9

  • Describe the assurances and guidelines which God gave to Joshua on his assumption of leadership.
  •    What three lessons could be derived from this episode?

Majority of the candidates who attempted this question did not perform satisfactorily because they narrated the story of Caleb and Joshua where as they were requested to write on the assurances God gave Joshua on his assumption of office as the leader of Israel.
They ought to mention among other points such as:

  • After the death of Moses, the Lord spoke to Joshua.
  • He should take the people over Jordan.
  • He would not leave him nor forsake him.
  • He must remain faithful to the law of Moses to be successful.
But they were able to do justice to the (b) part of the question where they were to mention lessons derived from the episode and this was able to earn them few marks.
