Exploring the Meaning of Joshua 19      

Napsal(a) Rev. Julian Duckworth

Joshua 19: The last six tribes receive their territories, and Joshua his inheritance.

This chapter is the last of seven chapters detailing the division of the land of Canaan among the tribes. In this chapter, the remaining six tribes receive their portions.

Simeon received land very much in the south, below that of Judah, and Simeon’s territory was made a part of Judah. Simeon means ‘to hear’. To hear the Lord, and to hear the truth, means wanting to live in obedience with what the Lord teaches. Simeon was important in earlier biblical events, but is rarely mentioned later on; obeying the Lord can and should be a quiet affair (see Swedenborg’s work, Apocalypse Revealed 87).

The area given to Zebulun was modest and towards the north, between the Sea of Galilee and the coast. Zebulun’s name means ‘place of exaltation and honor’, and its spiritual meaning is just as glorious: it refers to honoring the Lord through the way we live our lives, both inwardly and outwardly (see Swedenborg’s Heaven and Hell 390).

Issachar’s territory was a small, fertile area in the north, next to the Jordan. The name “Issachar” means ‘a man of hire’ or ‘a hired man’. Spiritually, this is about wanting to serve the Lord, and dedicating our lives to this. Then we are ‘employed’ as servants of the Lord, and we are rewarded with spiritual strength, joy, and blessings (see Swedenborg’s Arcana Caelestia 6388).

Asher means ‘happy’ - a delightful name - and its territory was along the northern coastline, extending inland. It included Mount Carmel and the Plain of Sharon, which were both beautiful places. Spiritual happiness is quite deep, and is really a feeling of joy, contentment, and well-being. When we are spiritually happy, we feel glad to be alive, to know the Lord, and to do what is good because of God (Arcana Caelestia 6408).

Naphtali had territory going up from the Sea of Galilee to the northern border. Naphtali means ‘crafty and cunning’, which does not sound very heavenly. However, the idea is that we use our intelligence to bring heavenly results from the countless decisions we make each and every day. Earlier in the Bible, Naphtali is blessed and called ‘a deer let loose’, which would then be free to bound away (see Genesis 49:21, Arcana Caelestia 3928).

Dan had two small territories: one in the centre on the coast, and one in the far north near the source of the River Jordan. Dan means ‘to judge well’, and it stands for our need to treat people fairly because of our relationship with the Lord. Perhaps there are two territories because one is our mind (north), and the other is in life (center) (Arcana Caelestia 3923).

Finally, Joshua himself is given his inheritance, a place in Ephraim called Timnath Serah. The name means ‘an extra portion’, and this suggests that beyond everything Joshua has done, he is to be given something further. Spiritually, this could be the unexpected delight we get when we devote ourselves to serving the Lord (Arcana Caelestia 995[3]).

The spiritual meaning of receiving a portion of land is that we are able to experience blessings and goodness from the Lord, but only after we have ‘conquered the land’. This means working through our temptations and overcoming weaknesses during our natural life.

Since the land of Canaan stands for heaven – and also for the growth of heaven in us – each of the twelve tribes represent a part of heavenly life that needs to be active in us. We must learn hear the word of the Lord, judge well in our daily actions, and honor His name by the way we live.

伯利恒
在圣经中,以法拉和伯利恒之间有很强的关系;它们可能是同一个城镇的两个不同名称,也可能是以法拉描述的地区包括伯利恒。不管是什么情况,它们在《圣经》中都扮演着重要的角色。当然,伯利恒是众所周知的耶稣的出生地,但也是大卫和本雅明的出生地,本雅明的母亲拉结也葬在那里。 原因是以法拉和伯利恒(顺便说一下,还有本雅明)代表了我们属灵的线的一个关键元素,这个元素使我们有可能拥有属灵的生活。 在最深层次上,我们的身份、我们的人性,是由爱所决定的--我们所爱的东西使我们成为什么样的人、什么样的人。但这种爱被锁在我们的内心深处;它不是我们可以直接与他人分享的。要分享它,我们必须给它一个形式--而给它一个形式意味着我们实际上是把它变成了思想,变成了真理。作为真理,它可以被分享,如果我们幸运的话,接受它的人将能够反其道而行之,感受到并内化为真理中所包含的爱。 不过,这个过程,涉及到两种 "量子飞跃"。爱是一种内在的东西,而真理是一种外在的东西(或如瑞典博格所说,爱是天体性的,真理是精神性的),内在的东西和外在的东西是分开的,处于两个不同的存在平面。把爱作为真理表达出来,需要一个特殊的过程,从真理中接受爱也需要一个特殊的过程。这就是伯利恒的意义所在。 伯利恒(和以法拉和本雅明)代表了瑞典博格所说的 "天人之灵"。这就是天体元素--爱--可以向着一种形式推进,可以尽可能地变得 "像真理一样"。与之相匹配的是一种叫做 "精神的天体",在这里,精神元素--真理--可以尽可能地变成 "爱的样子"。通过这些中间人,爱可以跳过这道鸿沟,有点像神经冲动穿越突触,或者像磁场把两块磁铁拉到一起。这是我们把爱变成有用的形式的唯一途径,也是我们分享爱的唯一途径。 这也解释了为什么约瑟要等到本雅明与他的弟兄们同在埃及时,才能向他们显明自己--约瑟代表灵界的天人,需要与天人的灵界的灵界配对才能沟通。这也解释了为什么主必须在伯利恒出生的原因。祂以人的形式降临,使祂的完美、无限的、神圣的爱能以真理的形式出现,与我们分享。这必须通过把一个内在的、天上的东西----祂的爱----变成一个外在的、属灵的形式----祂的真理来实现。只有通过天体的灵性,也就是伯利恒,才能实现这一点。
