The Sun Stands Still
To ask whether an event in Scripture really takes place or not is an inappropriate question: in the world of the narrative it most certainly does. But even in the world of the story we do not have to ascribe a miracle where one doesn’t occur. Take for instance the story of the sun standing still in Joshua 10. This is a perfect example where most readers see a miracle of colossal proportion, where one doesn’t necessarily take place. So if a miracle is not involved, how does the sun stand still over Gibeon, allowing Joshua and the Israelites to defeat the five kings of the Amorites in Joshua chapter 10?
