From a military standpoint, the perfect moment to attack Jericho would have been immediately after crossing the Jordan River. However, instead of allowing the people to attack at the moment in which Jericho was most fearful, God totally incapacitated their army for a few days by having all the men circumcised! God wanted them to stop and get their hearts right with Him and aligned with His will before going into battle. Please open your Bible to Joshua five, and listen as Pastor Ray Viola begins his study of this chapter.
