Section Notes

In one of the most hostile lands on the planet, an ancient people called the Israelites forged an army and carved out an empire. Their ancient military exploits are described in one of history's most famous religious texts--the Old Testament of The Bible. But by reading between the religious lines, military historians unlock the soldiers' secrets of The Bible by examining the weapons, strategies and the commanders, some of whom are not always thought of as warriors, like Abraham and Moses. In this lecture, we explore the biblical world from a military perspective from the time of Abraham until Joshua.
