It’s nearing Easter and usually the mega movie called The Ten Commandments is aired near this time each year. If you’ve watched it or read the account of Moses going up atop the mountain to meet God then you know God told him to, “Do not come near here; remove your sandals from your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.” Exodus 3:5 NASB
What about Joshua? Remember the scripture very similar to this one where “the captain of the Lord’s host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy. And Joshua did so.” Joshua 5:15 KJV
It’s not feet but foot. It’s not sandals but shoe. Does that mean Joshua only had one foot at this time. The NAS seems to render the verse in a plural tense. Guess that fixes it? Hope that doesn’t bother the KJV only group. Not trying to divide but to entertain discussion.
So, what you think. Joshua lost his foot during a battle, as a slave or there is some other explanation?
Until Next Time,
