TEXT: Joshua 2:1-21

Jericho is one of the oldest inhabited cities of the ancient world. Even though it is located in one of the hottest climates in the region of Palestine, it is a wonderful oasis. It is known as the "city of palm trees." Date palms, banana trees, sycamore trees, and henna trees populate the landscape. It is the type of place you would go to rest after a long, tiring journey.

However, despite all of its beauty, in the 15th century B.C., the city of Jericho was a very wicked place that was deserving of God's judgment. In our passage today, we find that the children of Israel are getting ready to take possession of the Promised Land. And as part of that process, they have to conquer the nations that are already in the land. Their first stop along the way is the city of Jericho, and they are under strict commands from God to destroy it.

1. First of all, notice the sin of Jericho. Joshua 6:17 tells us that the city of Jericho "was accursed by God, even it, and all that are therein." A divine "ban" -- signified by the Hebrew word "herem" -- was placed on the city and all that was in it. In the military terminology of that day, when a "ban" was placed on an enemy city that meant that nothing in the city was to be left alive. Everything was to be completely and utterly destroyed.
