(p.125) 8 Joshua
King Josiah of Judah

Past scholarship has emphasized the theological character of the book of Joshua, insofar as its historical presentation of Joshua's complete conquest of the land of Israel stands in tension with archeological research and the claims of other biblical traditions. Richard Nelson's studies of Joshua have been particularly important because they point to an interest in presenting Joshua as a figure who anticipates Josiah in driving out the idolatrous Canaanites and uniting the entire land. An analysis of the book of Joshua indicates that it is heavily influenced by the interests of the Josianic edition of the DtrH, and presents Joshua's conquest of the land as the model for Josiah's reign.
