Buried in the Promised Land
29 After these things, Joshua son of Nun, the servant of the Lord, died at the age of a hundred and ten. 30 And they buried him in the land of his inheritance, at Timnath Serah in the hill country of Ephraim, north of Mount Gaash.
31 Israel served the Lord throughout the lifetime of Joshua and of the elders who outlived him and who had experienced everything the Lord had done for Israel.
32 And Joseph’s bones, which the Israelites had brought up from Egypt, were buried at Shechem in the tract of land that Jacob bought for a hundred pieces of silver from the sons of Hamor, the father of Shechem. This became the inheritance of Joseph’s descendants.
33 And Eleazar son of Aaron died and was buried at Gibeah, which had been allotted to his son Phinehas in the hill country of Ephraim.
Joshua and Eleazar laid out the fundamentals of faith in God before they died. Honor and serve the Lord alone. When you choose God, you enter into a covenant with him where God promises to forgive and love you, as well as, give you his Spirit to do his work here on earth. In order to do this, you renounce the principles and practices of the culture around you that are not in accordance to God’s plan. You do this by aligning yourself with others who have faith in God and follow God.
