“Joshua the son of Nun, who stands before you, he shall go in there. Encourage him, for he shall cause Israel to inherit it.” Deu 1:38
We have previously seen that Joshua the son of Nun is a type of Messiah. The name “Joshua” is the anglicized form of the Hebrew name, “Yeshua.” Yeshua shall cause Israel to inherit her promise!
Now here is something else interesting: Joshua is almost always mentioned as Joshua the son of Nun. Moses is not mentioned as Moses the son of Amram. Aaron is not mentioned as Aaron the son of Amram. So why, every time Joshua is mentioned, is he called Joshua the son of Nun? These things are not coincidences in Scripture!
Nun is a letter of the Hebrew alephbet, the equivalent to our “n.” In Hebrew, its pictograph is the seed. The pictograph of the seed, O, is the origin of our numeral “zero.” So in one way, the Scripture is saying, Joshua, the son of the Seed. Yeshua is the Promised Seed. In another way, Scripture is saying, Joshua the son of no one (zero). Yeshua is the only begotten son of God and is not the son of a man, but the Promised Seed of the woman!
