THE BATTLE OF JERICHO

this was a group project for school, I would appreciate if you could give me feed back. Also, I know the title is misspelled. Thanks, enjoy

 

 

God: My servant Joshua, you must lead the children of israel into the land i promised them. I stood with moses, and i will also stand by you. Be strong, have courage and follow all my laws and I will always be with you

 

Joshua: get ready in 3 day we will cross the jordan river and into the land god promised you!

 

if the israelites settle in the land of canaan they will have to fight the canaanites

 

Joshua: Spies, go to Jericho to see if the canaanites are preparing for war

 

spy 1: okay

 

spy 2: yes, we will go do that

 

spies bow and run off and cross river see house and knock on door


 

Rahab opens door

spies; may we stay with you

rahab: yes, you may

AT CANAAN

stranger 1 go to king

stranger 1: king! I saw 2 Strangers walking into rahab's house, they must be

king: go to rahab's house and find those men

SOLDIERS RUN TO RAHAB'S HOUSE

 

Rahab: 2 men were here but i had no who they were, they left at nightfall, if you hurry to the city gate perhaps you can catch up to them.

 

Soldier 1: thanks for your help

 

soldiers rush to gate

 

Rahab: I know god has given you this land, everyone hear is frightned by you, we have heard how the lord has dried up the red sea for you, and defeated the egyptians. when we heard your people were coming our hearts filled with fear, all i ask is the when you distroy Jericho you save my father, my mother, my brothers and my sisters as i have saved you.

 

spies say in unison: we promise

 

NARRATOR: RAHAB LET ROPE DOWN FROM WINDOW, SPIES CLIMB DOWN AND ESCAPE.

 

Spy 1: truly the lord this land

spy 2: everyone in jericho is afraid of us

Joshua: everybody we will cross the river tomorrow and the lord will work wonders.

GOD: You must follow the priests, who will carry the Ark of covenant, the great gold covered chest

priest steps in river, water stops flowing

priest 1: look! the water has stopped!

NARRATOR: the israelites crossed the river to get to Canaan

priest: the river is moving again

joshua: are you with us or against us?

captain: I'm captain in the armies of the lord

god: Jericho will be destroyed joshua! I have a plan

soldiers march around city

priest come after

priest blow horns,

joshua: shout, shout, as loud as you can the lord has given you the city israelites

Israelites: take the gold and silver and present it to God, after you have completed this task

JOSHUA SAYS TO RAHAB AND FAMILY: You have been good to us, we will let

EVERYone: WE HAVE CONQUERED OUR HOMELAND!
