Joshua

 

Pronunciation:  DZHAH-shoo-uh

Occurrences:  1

First Reference:  Yeshua 20:24

 

Will you not remember how that the harlot Rahab, though she was chief among sinners, put forth the hand to save the men which Joshua sent to spy out the land whereby he might give unto your fathers an inheritance?

 

 

See:  Rahab

 

Summary:  (c. 1,350 BCE) According to the Hebrew Bible, Joshua was an assistant to Moses and became the leader of the Israelite tribes after Moses’ death. He led the conquest of Canaan, and later allocated the land to the tribes of Israel (see: Hebrew Bible — Book of Joshua; Exodus; Numbers). Prior to his siege against Jericho, Joshua sent two spies beyond its walls to investigate the security of the city. The spies would have been captured by soldiers if not for the assistance of the prostitute, Rahab, who hid them in bundles of flax in her roof. Upon escaping, the spies promised to spare Rahab and her family during the siege against the city. When Jericho fell, Rahab and her family were indeed saved from destruction.

 

While staying at the house of Porcius and Salome in Caesarea Philippi, Yeshua was rebuked by scribes and Pharisees for “entering the house of Gentiles and sinners” (Y:20:15-16). Yeshua responded to the Pharisees by referencing several scriptural examples of previous prophets who associated with those who would be considered by the Pharisees as sinners or Gentiles (Y:20:15-29).
