Our sermon series on Bible characters continues this week on Joshua. An important word in the book of Matthew is “fulfilled.” The word can be a prophecy fulfilled, or it can be a parallel within God’s work through history. In the Old testament Joshua is known as a “type” of Christ–that is, things in Jesus’ life parallel with Joshua. For example, both the name Joshua and the name Jesus mean “the Lord saves.” Joshua place 12 stones by the River Jordan to represent the 12 tribes of Israel; Jesus appointed 12 disciples to also represent those 12 tribes. This Sunday will we will look at how Jesus perfectly fulfilled the life of Joshua. Please join us on Sunday at 9:30 a.m.!
