Publisher Description

‘Joshua’ is Hebrew for the Greek ‘Jesus’. In fact the book of Joshua is the book of Jesus, which is what it is  called in the Septuagint (LXX), the first translation of the Hebrew Scriptures into Greek.

 

To the eye of faith the book of Joshua speaks of ‘Jesus’, the pioneer and perfector of our faith who, for the joy set before Him, endured the Cross, despising the shame (Hebrews 12:2).

 

However, unlike Joshua, Who failed to give the People of Israel a permanent enjoyment of rest in the promised land, his namesake, Jesus Christ, made a glorious entry into rest in the heavenly Canaan, and now invites His disciples to press forward towards that goal.

 

There are very many valuable lessons Christian can learn from the study of the Old Testament people who are  types of Christ. Much of this can be applied to ourselves, either directly or indirectly.
