At the conclusion of the book of Joshua, the people renew their commitment to the Mosaic covenant, saying, "We will serve the Lord." But Joshua's reply is discouraging: "You are not able to serve the Lord," he says, "for he is a holy God [and] he will not forgive your transgressions or your sins." Once again, we see that the Mosaic covenant is not a gracious covenant, but instead is pure law. This is why, in order to have any hope of salvation, we must look away from the Law of Moses to a new and better covenant where we can find mercy and grace. We will delve into these key distinctions as we wrap up The Gospel According to Joshua.The Gospel According to Joshua.

  • That's funny, because I don't see that at all. I see the Bible teaching the same thing it always teaches every step of the way: your works won't save you because you can't be good enough and you require a savior.

    If this were a works-only covenant that was a strange reversal of God's actions toward man as if he was trying again ala Adam, the covenant would be POSSIBLE to keep, not impossible, as Joshua states.
