Righteous Joshua (Jesus) son of Nun. Acrylic and gold on birch. 8x10"

Joshua (Jesus) son of Nun was Moses' successor who led the children of Israel into the Promised Land. The Lord worked many miracles to help Joshua and the Israelites conquer and inhabit the Promised Land: He stopped the flow of the Jordan, allowing the Israelites to cross on dry land; He toppled of the walls of Jericho; and He stopped the sun to assist the Israelites’ victory. At His Incarnation, the Lord Himself took Joshua's name, Jesus in Greek, which means "the Lord saves." As Joshua (Jesus) son of Nun led God's people into the temporal Promised Land, Jesus Son of God led God's people into the eternal Promised Land.
