The cities of refuge in the Promised Land were always open, and they contained physical resources to house fugitives until the elders of the city could assess their guilt or innocence. Anyone could come to one of these cities for refuge from the Avenger of Blood, whether they were an Israelite or a stranger. Similarly, Jesus is the always-available, all-sufficient refuge for anyone that runs to Him for protection from sin’s consequences. Please listen as Pastor Ray Viola concludes his remarks on Joshua chapter twenty and then begins his discussion of chapter twenty-one.
