Crossing Over: The Conquest

Joshua 3 (ESV) 14 So when the people set out from their tents to pass over the Jordan with the priests bearing the ark of the covenant before the people, 15 and as soon as those bearing the ark had come as far as the Jordan, and the feet of the priests bearing the ark were dipped in the brink of the water (now the Jordan overflows all its banks throughout the time of harvest), 16 the waters coming down from above stood and rose up in a heap very far away, at Adam, the city that is beside Zarethan, and those flowing down toward the Sea of the Arabah, the Salt Sea, were completely cut off. And the people passed over opposite Jericho. 17 Now the priests bearing the ark of the covenant of the Lord stood firmly on dry ground in the midst of the Jordan, and all Israel was passing over on dry ground until all the nation finished passing over the Jordan.

The priests stood firmly on dry ground in the midst of the Jordan so all Israel passed them by. As the people arrived to the other side they continued carrying the Ark of the Covenant to the other side of the mighty river. They had the privilege of being both the first to cross and the last ones to arrive.

Crossing Over

In Jewish tradition, there was a literal rock that followed Israel in their wanderings in the wilderness. In the Tosephta, the tradition is related as follows:"It was likewise with the well that was with the children of Israel in the wilderness, it [the well] was like a rock that was full of holes like a sieve from which water trickled and arose as from the opening of a flask. It [the rock-well] ascended with them to the top of the hills and descended with them into the valleys; wherever Israel tarried there it tarried over against the entrance to the tabernacleā€¯

Joshua Led the people of Israel into the promised land after more than 40 years of wandering in the wilderness. They were carrying the Ark od the Covenant wish represents the very Presence of God. The Ark was ahead of them showing that God is leading the way into a new direction and God tells them specific instructions about this crossing.
