Joshua (Josue) was the aide to Moses. He was one of twelve spies Moses sent to explore the land of Canaan during the Israelites’ journey into Palestine. Ten of the spies were frightened by the large number of Canaanites, but Joshua and Caleb were confident that God would allow the Israelites to conquer their enemies. At God’s command, Moses made Joshua the leader who would succeed him. After Moses death, Joshua led the Israelites into the Promised Land, where they conquered their enemies. Joshua is most famous for the miraculous collapse of the walls of Jericho after the Israelites under his command walked around them praying for several days. The story of Joshua is told in the Old Testament in Deuteronomy and Joshua.
