The chronology of the period of judges is uncertain. Josephus, the Jewish historian estimated that Joshua was eighty-five years old when Moses gave him charge over Israel. If his calculation was right, then the period of judges began about twenty-five years after the Israelites crossed Jordan and began the conquest of Canaan. In view of the forty years in the wilderness, this would mean Joshua had been forty-five years old when he served as one of the twelve spies.
