Gilgal means "roll." How do you roll away bad memories like Egyptian slavery? The text suggests that you can cast off the evil in your memory by incorporating it into a God-centered festival like Passover.

A New Testament story parallels the solution of Joshua 5:9-12. Peter had betrayed Jesus three times. The Risen Lord met him on the beach with a question asked three times. "Peter, do you love me?" "Yes," said the big fisherman three times. Three times Jesus replied, "Then feed my sheep." Part of the feeding ministry of the apostles was the Festival of Passover fulfilled: Holy Communion.

Many a Christian can confess that as he or she has come to Holy Communion sinful and enslaved to something in the past, God has rolled away the memory and caused him or her to start again.
