Joshua

God is help. The name also occurs in the Old Testament under the various forms Jehoshua, Hoshea, Jeshua, and Jesus; son of Nun, and successor of Moses; born in Egypt before the Exodus (Num. 14:26–31); fought with Amalek (Ex. 17:13–14); was Moses’ minister (24:13; 32:17; 33:11); one of the 12 spies (Num. 13:8); appointed Moses’ successor (27:18–19; 34:17; see also Deut. 1:38; 3:28; 31:3, 23; 34:9). The book of Joshua (see below) contains the history of his conquest of Palestine. He died at the age of 110 and was buried in his own city, Timnath-Serah. He is the highest type of the devout warrior.
