Might 40 years = 40 Jubilees?


I have been rereading Joshua this week and seeing some interesting parallels.  Here’s one…

As hard as it is for us to imagine, Israel, all 13 tribes had the Torah and knew what was righteous, but still didn’t do it for 40 years of wilderness journey.  Kinda like the ‘church,’ led by another Joshua, who has had Torah for the last 50 Jubilees, but has refused to observe some/certain of the commandments.

Stiff-necked then. Stiff-necked now.

Interesting that in Ezekiel we are told that it will not be until Abba brings us into the Land that He’ll sprinkle clean water on us and remove our filth.  Here, Joshua does similarly after they cross the Jordan into the Land.

This is the reason why Joshua circumcised them: all the people who came out of Egypt who were males, all the men of war, died in the wilderness along the way after they came out of Egypt. For all the people who came out were circumcised, but all the people who were born in the wilderness along the way as they came out of Egypt had not been circumcised. For the sons of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness, until all the nation, that is, the men of war who came out of Egypt, perished because they did not listen to the voice of the Lord , to whom the Lord had sworn that He would not let them see the land which the Lord had sworn to their fathers to give us, a land flowing with milk and honey.
