Saint Joshua ~ Moses’ Successor

Saint Joshua

It was Saint Joshua who took over for the elderly Moses and brought the Israelites into the Promised Land.

Numbers 27:22-23
Deuteronomy 3:28
Deuteronomy 31:7
Moses did as the LORD had commanded him.  Taking Joshua and having him stand in the presence of the priest Eleazar and of the whole community, he laid his hands on him and gave him his commission, as the LORD had directed through Moses.
Commission Joshua, and encourage and strengthen him, for he shall cross at the head of this people and shall put them in possession of the land you are to see.
Then Moses summoned Joshua and in the presence of all Israel said to him, “Be brave and steadfast, for you must bring this people into the land which the LORD swore to their fathers he would give them; you must put them in possession of their heritage.

The Feast of Saint Joshua is September 1
