Similarities between Joshua and Revelation
The bible contains 66 books, penned by 40 authors over thousands of years. Yet it conveys a single message: that Jesus is the Son of God and will reign for eternity. There are many similitude's throughout the bible (Abraham sacrificing his only son. Sound familiar??). There are many similarities between the book of Joshua and the book of Revelation as well that many people may not have realized:
In Greek, Joshua can be pronounced 'Jesus'
Joshua's goal is to take back the land from those who seized it. In Revelation, Jesus' goal is to take back the earth.
Joshua gives 2 spies the authority to scope out the land, especially Jericho (Joshua 2:1). Revelation 11:3 speaks of 2 witnesses who have been given authority to prophesy.
Joshua calls for complete silence before the trumpets sound (Joshua 6:10). Revelation 8:1 says there was silence in heaven before the sound of the trumpets.
At the seventh sound of the trumpets, the walls fall and Joshua takes possession (Joshua 6:20). Jesus reigns forever at the sound of the seventh trumpet (Revelation 11:15).
Everything and everyone within the city of Jericho was destroyed (Joshua 6:21). God's wrath came and so did the time of Judgment (Rev 11:18).
There are probably many other as well and I encourage you to post them here! As always, thank you for your responses.
