Jericho County

Edward S. Weaver

   In Sunday School most teachers quickly pass over the importance of the city of Jericho and the surrounding area in order to focus on the amazing story of the walls falling down. If we carefully look into the other events that surrounded the city of Jericho, then we can see an accurate picture of its importance to God's people during their first 350-500 years in the Promised Land. The United States is merely 222 years old. Our Capitol has been in the same place since the beginning. What if 128-378 years from now we were forced to move or rebuild our Capitol after a Nuclear War destroyed all the government buildings? What if the restored Congress chose a more centrally located city within the borders of our country like Dallas, Texas?

   This is what happened to God's people. King David chose Jerusalem after the destruction of Gilgal and the County of Jericho. When they moved the Capitol they began to forget the provision and the promises of God that were evidenced in stone and part of the physical landscape. The purpose of this book is to bring the excitement of these abandoned events and places into view for our generation, to see the awesome power of God, while rebuilding a foundation of belief in a God who provides for His people. Experience the original places of God's deliverance and worship, before God's punishment and the destruction of His first dwelling place.
