Joshua 11, “Violence in the Old Testament.” (Topical)

When discussing the violence of God in the Old Testament we have to a number of presuppositions.
Firstly, itt isn’t really an option to say that God was unfair, unjust or unmerciful! God is holy and we are not! God has every right to judge us but we have no right to judge God.

Secondly, is that we are limited in our understanding of Scripture and that we can be quick to judge wrongly. My second presupposition is that we often get it wrong because we read Scripture wrong. We are limited in our understanding. So, we always approach Scripture with a good dose of humility, trying to understand what God is telling us.
