[ I will again be working through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. I will be adding links, resources, images, and the like, upgrading the former work-through which began with the 2013-10-12 posting which can be found, along with the full Genesis to Revelation postings, in the Archive Page. Postings will be at midnight Eastern Time, as I am able. However, no chapters will be skipped, even though a posting may be late. And all postings will be housed in the Archive Page. ]
Explanation: Joshua 12 contains a list of conquered territories. The list consists of two parts. The first part gives the conquests which Israel made under the leadership of Moses on the eastern side of the Jordan River (1-6).
The second part lists gives the list of territories conquered on the western side of the Jordan River after the death of Moses under the leadership of Joshua (7-24).
The conquest seems to have been quite swift; some chronologists say that the First Phase of the Conquest (the Southern and Northern campaigns described in chapters 1-12) took only about a year (e.g., 1406-1405 B.C.). The Second Phase (Dividing the Land and a Time of Rest described in chapters 13-24) was longer - about 25 years (1405-1380 B.C.).
The first 4 cities Joshua conquered were Jericho, Ai, Gibeon, and Bethel. This gave the Israelites a foothold in the middle of the land from the Jordan River half-way to the Mediterranean Sea and allowed them to make swift progress south and then north in their conquests. It should be noted that they did not annihilate all the inhabitants of the land; rather, they gained military control and gained increasing mastery of the land (with numerous setbacks) over the course of several centuries. The fullest extent of their conquest came under David and his son Solomon. But in Joshua God's promises had already been kept (Joshua 21:45; Joshua 23:14-15).

PLEASE NOTE: Use the resources on this and other sites thoughtfully, particularly the commentaries and encyclopedias. I have attempted to list conservative, scholarly resources. However, some providers use liberal or liberal-influenced commentaries such as the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (in Bible Hub). Such commentaries are undoubtedly included by the provider for the wealth of useful information and comments which they provide. By consulting several commentaries, it should be fairly easy to sort out the wheat from the chaff. If, however, you would like personal assistance, write to me at AD LIB ARTS EMAIL.
