Slide 1

When five powerful Amorite kings learnt that the Gibeonites had made a treaty with the invading Israelites, they decided to get revenge on the people of Gibeon by attacking their city. – Slide 1

Slide 2

The men of Gibeon hurriedly sent messengers to Joshua, the leader of the Israelites, at Gilgal. – Slide 2

Slide 3

‘Come and help your servants!’ they demanded. ‘Come quickly and save us! For all the kings of the Amorites who live in the hills are ready to attack us with their armies.’ – Slide 3

Slide 4

Joshua and the Israelite army set off and marched through the night. – Slide 4

Slide 5

And by early morning they were ready to take the enemy by surprise. – Slide 5

Slide 6

The Lord said to Joshua, ‘Don’t be afraid of them, for they are already defeated! I have given them to you to destroy. Not a single one of them will be able to stand up to you.’ – Slide 6

Slide 7

The Lord threw the enemy army into a panic and the army of Israel slaughtered great numbers of them at Gibeon and chased the others towards Beth-horon and Azekah and Makkedah. As the enemy was racing down the hill to Beth-horon, the Lord destroyed many with a great hailstorm. In fact, more men died from the hail than by the swords of the Israelites. – Slide 7

Slide 8

Fearing the remaining enemy soldiers would escape under cover of darkness, Joshua prayed aloud, ‘Let the sun stand still over Gibeon, and let the moon stand in its place over the valley of Aijalon!’ – Slide 8

Slide 9

And the sun and the moon didn’t move until the Israeli army had finished the destruction of its enemies! – Slide 9

Slide 10

So the sun stopped in the heavens and stayed there for almost twenty-four hours! This had never happened before or since. The Lord stopped the sun and moon, all because of the prayer of one man. – Slide 10
