Large Jigsaw Puzzle for Joshua Explored the Promised Land
The time had finally come for the People of Israel to enter the land God had promised to Abraham centuries earlier. God had delivered them from Egypt, formed them into a nation at Sinai, and then brought them to the edge of the Promised Land. In Numbers 13, we read that Moses appointed Joshua to head up an expedition of 12 scouts, including Caleb, to explore the land. Joshua and his men were to bring back reports. They did, indeed, come back to tell of a fertile place with unusually big fruit and vegetables. Unfortunately, according to ten of the spies, the people living in the Promised Land were also super-sized, which frightened everyone except Joshua and Caleb. This Large Jigsaw Puzzle for Joshua Explored the Promised Land will help kids learn about this event and discover the importance of trusting God to overcome all obstacles. This large jigsaw puzzle can be used in a Sunday School, classroom or homeschool setting.
