Question: What does it mean that “Joshua was old, advanced in years”?

Question: What is the “city of refuge”?

Answer: The city of refuge is a place where someone who has unintentionally harmed another can hide. This means that the Creator set him up. From a person’s point of view, he can receive punishment, but from the Creator’s point of view, there is no guilt on him.
