The Chronology of Conquest
conquest took exactly seven years to complete: Josh 14:10
many view this as a Jewish holocaust against the seven pagan tribes living
in Canaan by Joshua, it is important to remember that God wiped them out
for their sin: Josh 11:19-20. Remember also in Gen 15, God told Abraham he
would have to wait 430 years to take possession of Canaan "because
the sin of the Amorite is not yet full". In other words, God would
not exterminate those living in Canaan in 2000 BC because they were not
sinful enough. However at the time of Joshua, their sin was more than God
Could bare and like the world flood of Gen 6, the destruction of Sodom and
Gomorrah, God commanded Joshua to kill man, woman and child. At least the
children were saved, because they did not grow up to be sinful, immoral
pagan idol worshippers like their parents.
