- We could look right at the torah in context that as we know exactly who this prophet is…
The book of deutronomy event is essentially covered a period of time less than six weeks.
Moses of blessed memory our teacher die in the end of the book of deutronomy so that mean all this is Happening right before the death of Moses of blessed memory. Unlike other religions you could see islam where Muhammad died and it’s was not clear who should be the next caliphate the person who would lead the movement or it wasn’t clear to many people and it caused a terrible war which a fight and sectism which islam live it today. Judaism do not have that problem today because Moses of blessed memory was instructed to actually give over smicha or the nation and the spirit of God will rest on the next person who would have the same guidance and respect and would follow him as Moses of blessed memory our teacher. Judaism don’t have this problem because it says in the Torah very clearly.
His full name was Joshua son of Nun, son of Ephraim, son of Joseph, son of Jacob, son of Isaac, son of Abraham. So Joshua is the great-grandson of Prophet Joseph and out of six of his forefathers, four were prophets and Joshua himself is a prophet.
In 1272 BCE (Jewish year 2489), Joshua commanded the sun to “stand still at Gibeon” (Joshua 10:12). Joshua was involved in conquering the southern part of Canaan, and Shabbat was fast approaching. Not wanting to do battle on Shabbat, Joshua prayed for a miracle, and the sun stopped twice – once at midday and once before sunset, giving the Israelites extra time to complete the battle.
“The sun has never stopped for any man besides Joshua when he wanted to conquer Jerusalem
וִֽיהוֹשֻׁ֣עַ בִּן־נ֗וּן מָלֵא֙ ר֣וּחַ חָכְמָ֔ה כִּֽי־סָמַ֥ךְ מֹשֶׁ֛ה אֶת־יָדָ֖יו עָלָ֑יו וַיִּשְׁמְע֨וּ אֵלָ֤יו בְּנֵֽי־יִשְׂרָאֵל֙ וַֽיַּעֲשׂ֔וּ כַּאֲשֶׁ֛ר צִוָּ֥ה יְהוָ֖ה אֶת־מֹשֶֽׁה׃
Now Joshua son of Nun was filled with the spirit of wisdom because Moses had laid his hands upon him; and the Israelites heeded him, doing as the LORD had commanded Moses.
וַיֹּ֤אמֶר יְהוָה֙ אֶל־יְהוֹשֻׁ֔עַ הַיּ֣וֹם הַזֶּ֗ה אָחֵל֙ גַּדֶּלְךָ֔ בְּעֵינֵ֖י כָּל־יִשְׂרָאֵ֑ל אֲשֶׁר֙ יֵֽדְע֔וּן כִּ֗י כַּאֲשֶׁ֥ר הָיִ֛יתִי עִם־מֹשֶׁ֖ה אֶהְיֶ֥ה עִמָּֽךְ׃
The LORD said to Joshua, “This day, for the first time, I will exalt you in the sight of all Israel, so that they shall know that I will be with you as I was with Moses.
בַּיּ֣וֹם הַה֗וּא גִּדַּ֤ל יְהוָה֙ אֶת־יְהוֹשֻׁ֔עַ בְּעֵינֵ֖י כָּל־יִשְׂרָאֵ֑ל וַיִּֽרְא֣וּ אֹת֔וֹ כַּאֲשֶׁ֛ר יָרְא֥וּ אֶת־מֹשֶׁ֖ה כָּל־יְמֵ֥י חַיָּֽיו׃ (פ)
On that day the LORD exalted Joshua in the sight of all Israel, so that they revered him all his days as they had revered Moses.
AFTER JOSHUA DIE
וַיְהִ֗י אַֽחֲרֵי֙ הַדְּבָרִ֣ים הָאֵ֔לֶּה וַיָּ֛מָת יְהוֹשֻׁ֥עַ בִּן־נ֖וּן עֶ֣בֶד יְהוָ֑ה בֶּן־מֵאָ֥ה וָעֶ֖שֶׂר שָׁנִֽים׃
After these events, Joshua son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died at the age of one hundred and ten years.
וְלֹֽא־קָ֨ם נָבִ֥יא ע֛וֹד בְּיִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל כְּמֹשֶׁ֑ה אֲשֶׁר֙ יְדָע֣וֹ יְהוָ֔ה פָּנִ֖ים אֶל־פָּנִֽים׃
Never again did there arise in Israel a prophet like Moses—whom the LORD singled out, face to face,
