#25. Allotments

Map of the Holy Land and its tribes, Marino Sanudo, 1320 CE.

It's time for everybody's favorite scriptural topic — land allotments! The second half of the Book of Joshua is markedly less thrilling than the first, parceling out land to the various tribes of Israel. Fortunately, we're also taking the time to discuss the origins of the tribal system and how to cope with the Deuteronomist's peculiar approach to history-making.

Feel free to read along in Joshua 13-24.
