Joshua, which is the Hebrew version of the name Jesus meaning “Yahweh saves,” is a type of Christ in that he was the one who would lead God’s people into the Promised Land. From the beginning to the end of the book of Joshua, the formula is repeated: God gives and Israel inherits. The book of Joshua is a story of grace. Joshua was a savior of the covenant people. Jesus is the Savior of the covenant people. Joshua went before the people to bring them to the inheritance. Jesus goes before His people to bring them to the true inheritance.
