The story of Moses' successor Joshua is this panel. Joshua directs the crossing into the promised land, across the miraculously dry River Jordan, as tribal members gather stones for a memorial monument. At top background, Joshua and the Israelites march around their first conquest, Jericho, as its walls crumbling at the sound of their trumpets and shouts. Jericho resembles a typical Italian hill-town of Ghiberti's day.
