Joshua 3:16 Then the waters which came down from above stood and rose up in a heap far off, at Adam, the city that is beside Zarethan; and those flowing down toward the sea of the Arabah, the Salt [Dead] Sea, were wholly cut off, and the people passed over opposite Jericho.

Joshua 6:15, 24 On the seventh day, they rose early at daybreak and marched around the city as usual, only that one day they compassed the city seven times.

The Son of God Himself and Joshua

Joshua 5:15 And the Prince of the Lord’s host said to Joshua, Loose your shoes from off your feet: for the place where you stand is holy. “The real character of this personage was disclosed by His accepting the homage of worship [Cp. Acts 10:25-16; Rev. 19:10], and still further in the command, ‘Loose thy shoe from off thy foot” [Jamison, Fausset & Brown’s Commentary]. The New Bible Commentary supports this position, as do Lange, The Continue Reading

Zechariah 6:9-15; The Coronation of Joshua; Prediction of the Messiah; These crowns of silver and gold both signify the royal dignity, the crown of silver being perphaps designed to typify the kingdom of the Messiah when he was here on earth, for then He was the King of Israel (John 1:49), but the crown of gold His kingdom in His exalted state, the glory of which as far exceeded that of the former as gold does silver; The sun shines as gold, when he goes forth in his strength; and the beams of the moon, when she walks in brightness, we call silver beams; Those that worshipped the sun and moon shall now fall down before the golden and silver crowns of the exalted Redeemer, before whom the sun shall be ashamed and the moon confounded being both out-shone. B.C. 520
