Description: 48 pages ; 22 cm.
Contents: Proposed solution for upholding God's moral goodness despite His command to annihilate the Canaanites : Wartime ethic legitimately different from peacetime ethic ; The divine command to kill all women and children is not meant to be taken literally --
A plausible fivefold approach : God's command to annihilate all the Canaanites because of immorality and idolatry was part of a unique redemptive-historical circumstance that demonstrated divine justice ; God's command to annihilate all the Canaanites because of moral uncleanness was part of a unique redemptive-historical commission to purify the Promised Land as a sanctuary ; God's sovereignty justifies His command to annihilate all the Canaanites ; God's command to annihilate all the Canaanites is an anticipation of the end-time judgment of all people and thus a suspension of the expression of His common grace to unbelievers during the epoch of Israel; Evidence from the use of the Old Testament in the New that judgments in the Old Testament point to the end-time judgment of all people ; God's command to annihilate all the Canaanites and the Psalms' imprecations anticipate the end-time judgment when love of the unbelieving neighbor ceases ; A possible objection to the notion that ethical laws are suspended during typological episodes in the Old Testament --
Conclusion --
Excursus: Is the divine command to kill all the Canaanite women and children not meant to be taken literally?
