Was Joshua the Hero Of Jericho? (Schistosoma and Jericho)

The Jordan Valley near Jericho.
From the OSU Special Collections
and Archives.
Reform Judaism Magazine has published an adapted excerpt from my book Parasites: Tales of Humanity's Most Unwelcome Guests. The excerpt is a shortened version of my retelling of the story of Rahab, Joshua, and the Battle of Jericho, with the blood fluke Schistosoma hematobium as a central character.
Reform Judaism Magazine is an interesting publication. The online version features a number of articles that would appeal to any reader: titles that caught my eye include "Were the Jews Slaves in Egypt?," "The Divinity of Dementia," and "A Paragraph that Changed History" ("Why Jesus' last supper could not have been a Passover meal..."). Fascinating.

It's my pleasure to be published in this magazine. You can read Was Joshua the Hero of Jericho? on the internet.

  1. please admin help me share this to those who still suffering of this disease. As a sign of gratitude for how my wife was saved from Schistosomiasis, i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
    My wife suffered Schistosomiasis in the year 2013 and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because he was my all and the symptoms were terrible, she always complain of abdominal pain and swelling , and she always have skin itching. we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure her. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony by someone who was cured and so many other with similar body problem, and he left the contact of the doctor who had the cure to Schistosomiasis . I never imagined Schistosomiasis . has a natural cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my wife will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my wife used it and in one months time he was fully okay even up till this moment she is so full of life.Schistosomiasis . has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on drwilliams098765@gmail.com on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my story
