Sunday School Lesson


These lessons examine Israel’s early life as they prepare to enter the Promised Land. Selected texts from the book of Joshua highlight God’s blessing in response to obedience and God’s anger in response to disobedience.


These five lessons study the book of judges and give a glimpse of Israel’s life after they enter the Promised Land. They examine the repeated cycle of disobedience, oppression, repentance, and renewed faithfulness.


These four lessons all relate to the story of Ruth and her eventual marriage to Boaz. This marriage continues the Davidic line. This is the line through which Jesus Christ the Messiah, will come.

Lesson for June 5, 2011:

God’s Promises Fulfilled  (Joshua 1:1b-6;11:16-19, 21-23)

Lesson for July 3, 2011: God Reacts to Disobedience (Joshua 7:1, 10-12, 22-26)

Lesson for August 7, 2011: Walk in God’s Path (Judges 13:1-8, 24-25)

Following the death of Moses, Israel prepared to enter the Promised Land under Joshua’s command.

Sanctification is an important biblical concept. God sometimes gives very specific instructions in the Bible regarding how to accomplish a given task. When Achan disobeyed God’s command and kept the “devoted things,” which were the unclean things that were supposed to be destroyed, his sin caused Israel to fail in battle.

After an angel informs Manoah’s wife that she will give birth, Manoah prays for knowledge regarding how to raise their child. When Samson was born, the Spirit of the Lord became evident in his young life.

Lesson for June 12, 2011: God Has Expectations  (Joshua 1:7-16)

Lesson for July 10, 2011: Listen to God’s Judges  (Judges 3:15-25, 29-30)

Lesson for August 14, 2011: Choosing a Community (Ruth 1:8-18)

As Israel prepared to enter the Promised Land, we learn that three tribes were suppose to fight alongside the other. However, after they helped their brothers subdue the land and defeat the inhabitants, they could return to live on the land east of Jordan.

This passage is an introduction to the book of Judges, which explains Israel’s recurring cycles of national apostasy.

Confronted with famine and the death of her husband and two sons, Naomi felt that she had nothing to share with her daughters-in-law except adversity. Naomi realized that for Ruth, Orpah, and herself, becoming widows meant the loss of security and identity. She implored her daughters-in-law to return to their families in Moab while she returns to Judah. Ruth refused to go home, but made a passionate plea to remain with Naomi, her people, and her God.

Lesson for June 19, 2011: God Protects (Joshua 2:3-9, 15-16, 22-24)

Lesson for July 17, 2011: Use God’s Strength (Judges 3:15-25, 29-30)

Lesson for August 21, 2011: Empowering the Needy (Ruth 2:8-18)

The conquest of the Promised Land involved complete trust in carrying out God’s plans. The news of God’s victories proceeded the arrival of the Israelites spies into Jericho. Rahab deceived the King of Jericho by covering for the Israelite spies.

Eglon, the King of Moab, oppressed Israel for 18 years with a burdensome tax of money or produce. God raised up Ehud, of the tribe of Benjamin, as the judge or military leader.

In the time of the Judges, widows were vulnerable and subject to being ignored, taken advantage of, and often forced into poverty. Boaz followed God’s Law by allowing ruth to glean in His field (Leviticus 19:9-10 and Deuteronomy 24:19-22).

Lesson for June 26, 2011: God is Victorious (Joshua 6:2-3, 4b, 12-20b

Lesson for July 24, 2011: Let God Rule  (Judges 7:2-4, 13-15; 8:22-25)

Lesson for August 28, 2011: Respecting Community Standards (Ruth 4:1-10)

At God’s command, Joshua and the children of Israel marched around Jericho for seven days. On the final day as Israel conquered the city, God miraculously caused the walls to collapse.

The children of Israel were being oppressed by the Midianites, a nomadic tribe traditionally related to Israel (Genesis 25:1-6) Gideon became the judge of Israel and was instructed to limit the size of his army.

Boaz sought to redeem the land of Naomi’s husband and son and to secure the hand of Ruth in marriage. Naomi’s family line continued through her grandson Obed to King David (Ruth 4:22).


Lesson for July 31, 2011: Return to Obedience (Judges 10:10-18)



Despite God’s repeated deliverance, Israel fell again into idolatry. They responded to oppression by confessing their sin against God
