Excerpt from Notes, Critical and Practical, on the Book of Joshua: Designed as a General Help to Biblical Reading and Instruction
The writer speaks of himself as one that participated in the trans actions which he records, eh. 5. 1 'and it came to pass, when all the kings of the Amorites which were on the side of Jordan westward, and all the kings of the Canaanites which were by the sea, heard that the Lord had dried up the waters of Jordan from before the children of Israel, until we were passed over, that their heart melted; neither was there spirit in them any more, because of the children of Israel.' As it is said, moreover, ch. 6. 25, that 'joshua saved. Rahab the harlot alive, and her father's household, and all that she had; and she dwelleth in Israel even unto this day,' there is a strong presumption that this was not written later than near the close of Joshua's life; and if so, he would be as likely to have written it as any one else.
It is scarcely conceivable that so many names of persons and places as occur in this book, should have been preserved, unless in a cotemporary document; and from whom would such a document have been more likely to proceed than from Joshua himself 2 He might naturally be expected to record such transactions as went to illustrate the truth of the Divine promises made to his people.
