Did the sun stop moving in the sky in Joshua 10, or are we misunderstanding how ancients thought of the sun "standing still"? Does taking a less common view mean you have less faith? Why were Israel's surrounding neighbors so particular about the alignment of stars and planets before battle and how may that play a role in this popular story? Join us for part 3 of our current series: "Are you sure you know what that verse means?"
