Moses has died and now Joshua was the leader. The people had turned away from God, which could have cost them their existence, but because of God’s love they were given mercy. Joshua at the skills to lead them to the Promised Land. God empowered Joshua for the task. He begin to prepare them for the conquest (Joshua 1:1-5:15). The people of Canaan were very wicked, and their way of life was an abomination to God (Lev. 18:24-30). God had given them more than enough time to repent, but they chose not to (Genesis 15:13-16). God used the Israelites to impose His punishment on the people of Canaan (Joshua 11:18-20). United Monarchy (1200-900 BC) According to Hindson, God establishes the new monarchy for His people even though they were in sin (Hindson, p.159). Egypt lost its position as an international superpower (Arnold, Beyer, p. 18). The United monarchy was controlled under Saul, David, and Solomon. Because of the constant threat of military invasion and cultural pressure to be like other nations, the Israelite monarchy was developed. The people requested that they have a king to be over them to fight and protect them. Saul was anointed as the first king of Israel (1Samuel 8:19b-20). However, Saul did not maintain his relationship with God and was finally rejected. God instructed Samuel to anoint a man who was after God’s own heart, David became the next king of Israel

It is sad to say that the united monarchy did not last due to Solomon allowing his heart to turn away from God (1Kings 11:4) The Divided Kingdom through the Pre-Exilic Period (900-586 BC) After the death of Solomon the kingdom was divided, Israel was in the north and Judah in the south (1 Kings 11:10-13; 43). According to Hindson and Yates, the northern kingdom fell in 721 BC, The Invasion by the Assyrian Sennacherib destroyed the city of Lachish and also threatens Jerusalem (701 BC). And the Babylonian monarch Nebuchadnezzar captured Jerusalem and destroys the temple and the people are taken into exile (Hindson & Yates, p.28). Exile (605-535 BC) This is the period that the people of Israel were taken into captivity in Babylonia. King Nebuchadnezzar overwhelmed Jerusalem (Hindson & Yates p.28) The Post-Exilic Period (586-332 BC) This is the time that the people were returning from exile. There was so much for them to learn in how to keep God’s laws. Nehemiah led them to make the commitment to God. This marks a turning point for the nation (Nehemiah 13:19-22). They had been held for 70 years. We are able to read of this in the books Ezra through Esther.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
