St. Joshua

About Saint Joshua

According to the Hebrew Bible, Joshua was the leader of the Israelites who took the place of Moses. Saint Joshua is mentioned in scripture in Exodus, Numbers, and the Book of Joshua. Moses assigned Saint Joshua to scout out the land of Canaan which is well known as the “Promised Land”.

Saint Joshua lived between 1450 B.C. and 1370 B.C. He eventually led the conquest of Canaan. In the following passage, Saint Joshua asks God to make the sun and the moon stand still so he could fight for the land of Canaan in the daylight.

 St Joshua Patron Saint

(Josh 10:12-14) 12Then Joshua spoke to the Lord in the day when the Lord delivered up the Amorites before the sons of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel,
 “ O
)sun, stand still at Gibeon,
         And O moon in the valley of Aijalon."
    
13)So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped,
         Until the nation avenged themselves of their enemies
         Is it not written in the book of Jashar? And the sun stopped in the middle of the sky and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day.

14There was no day like that before it or after it, when the Lord listened to the voice of a man; for the Lord fought for Israel.
