New book and new leading man. Joshua, son of Nun. Great name for a sci-fi cowboy comic book!
After the death of Moses, the Lord changes his name to Jehovah and commands Joshua to cross the Jordan. But first two spies are send out to recon the first city of Jericho.
They immediately go to the home of a prostitute. At first, this caused me to raise an eyebrow but then I looked at it from perspective of the spies. They would want to go somewhere where a lot of questions wouldn't be asked. If you're going to a prostitute's house, people will just assume you've come into town to get your jollies (nudge, nudge).
Of course, their presence is somehow made known to the king almost immediately and Rehab the harlot makes a deal to save the spies in exchange for the sparing of herself and her family when the Israelites march in and kill everyone.
When the spies return, Joshua gives his/God's marching orders and as the priests (or the 12 representatives of the 12 tribes) step into the Jordan, the waters recede.
They're almost there!
