Once upon a time, a long time ago, there was a group of people called the Israelites. They had been wandering in the desert for many years after escaping slavery in Egypt. But finally, they had reached the land of Canaan, which was promised to them by God. The only problem was that there were already people living in Canaan.
God had chosen a man named Joshua to lead the Israelites into battle and conquer the land. Joshua was very brave and he trusted in God to help them win. He gathered his army and they marched into Canaan. They faced many battles and challenges, but with God’s help, they were victorious.
One of the most famous battles was the Battle of Jericho. The walls of the city were so strong that no one thought they could be knocked down. But God told Joshua to have his army march around the city seven times, and on the seventh day, they were to blow their trumpets and shout. When they did, the walls of Jericho came tumbling down.
Eventually, the Israelites conquered all of Canaan and settled in the land that God had promised to them. Joshua became a great leader and the people followed him for many years. They remembered that it was only with God’s help that they were able to conquer the land.
