“From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast.” Joshua 1:2-4
Far from being the seemingly insane ramblings of some irrelevant desert dwellers, the Bible is the historical account by the winners of the greatest military campaign in Antiquity.
Moses prepared Israel for the onslaught, but Joshua led the invasion. Joshua took on the three greatest Empires of the day and won.
They vanquished Egypt, the Assyrians, and utterly annihilated the Hittites.
With this stunning new perspective, Joshua must be considered the greatest General of Antiquity.
Only Alexander, a thousand years later, can stand in his shadow.
Migchels writes: “This notion that Israel was behind the Bronze Age Collapse, is really a major discovery, if true.
But this narrative about Israel and the Bronze Age Collapse, and Joshua leading the invasion after Moses’ death is really incredibly concrete.
And if true, of World Importance. It’s a great validation of the Bible, and solving a major historical mystery, suddenly giving a clear view of what transpired of the centuries in the area.”
Has The Bible Been Proven Correct As A Major Historical Text?

In Deuteronomy, Moses describes the tribulations of the tribes and discusses the invasion of Canaan, and the annihilation of the Amorites and the Hittites, and others. The duty to stick to the Law is the key condition for victory and future security in the Promised Land.
Moses gave these speeches in Moab, which is the East bank of the Jordan. This would be the base from which Israel would strike.
