The first thing that Israel does after crossing the Jordan is to engage in a practice that would leave them in physical pain and vulnerable to attack. This cutting of the flesh is then followed up by a memorial festival of Passover. The reason that these steps are necessary might seem shocking, but let’s just say that Israel in the wilderness was not as faithful to God’s commands as we might think. Even this second generation had left things undone, and that needed to be remedied.
