Joshua, an Ephraimite, is set to be the successor of Moses, and the sons of Joseph form part of the twelve tribes at the exclusion of Levi (Numbers). The pro-Joseph elements in the Hexateuch are regarded as part of the non-Priestly source.
Joshua also was the leader in renewing the Mosaic covenant with their God. Caleb was from the tribe of Judah. He was also chosen to explore the land of Canaan, and he was (along with Joshua) the other man who said that the God of Israel could help the Israelite people to victory against the Canaanites.
Joshua, also spelled Josue, Hebrew Yehoshua (“Yahweh is deliverance”), the leader of the Israelite tribes after the death of Moses, who conquered Canaan and distributed its lands to the 12 tribes. His story is told in the Old Testament Book of Joshua.
By the end of chapter 21, the narrative records that the fulfilment of God’s promise of land, rest and supremacy over the enemies of the Israelites was complete ( Joshua 21:43–45).
In Matthew 1:1–6 and Luke 3:31–34 of the New Testament, Jesus is described as a member of the tribe of Judah by lineage.
Most modern Bibles translate Hebrews 4:8–10 to identify Jesus as a better Joshua, as Joshua led Israel into the rest of Canaan, but Jesus leads the people of God into “God’s rest”.
Spies were sent by Moses to explore the land of Canaan (promised to the children of Israel) for “forty days” ( Numbers 13:2, 25). The Hebrew people lived in the lands outside of the promised land for “forty years”. This period of years represents the time it takes for a new generation to arise ( Numbers 32:13).
Caleb is a Hebrew masculine given name. The Hebrew meaning offered for Caleb is “faithful, devotion, whole hearted, bold, brave”. This is on the basis of its being actually a compound word, a phenomenon quite common in ancient Hebrew.
The Bible says that God blessed Caleb because he had a different spirit or a different attitude than the rest of the people (Numbers 14:24). He remained wholeheartedly loyal to God. Caleb followed God when no one else did, and his uncompromising obedience earned him a lasting reward.
Jesus ‘ name in Hebrew was “Yeshua” which translates to English as Joshua.
Moses and Joshua get ready to climb the mountain. While Moses seems to be the only one who went up, yet it is clear from 32.17 that Joshua did accompany Moses up the mountain, although he ( Joshua ) did not go all the way. The Lord commands Moses to go down the mountain.
The land known as Canaan was situated in the territory of the southern Levant, which today encompasses Israel, the West Bank and Gaza, Jordan, and the southern portions of Syria and Lebanon.
Canaan was the name of a large and prosperous ancient country (at times independent, at others a tributary to Egypt) located in the Levant region of present-day Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Israel. It was also known as Phoenicia.
Ten Lost Tribes of Israel, 10 of the original 12 Hebrew tribes, which, under the leadership of Joshua, took possession of Canaan, the Promised Land, after the death of Moses. They were named Asher, Dan, Ephraim, Gad, Issachar, Manasseh, Naphtali, Reuben, Simeon, and Zebulun—all sons or grandsons of Jacob.
Of the 25 times the phrase is repeated, in the Bible, God says them 4 times (Deuteronomy 31:23; Joshua 1:6, 7, 9) to Joshua.
