Some of you may have seen this passage before. I always think it's interesting to think about whether this is Jesus or not. Old Testament Jesus was pretty tough!
It happened, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, a man stood in front of him with his sword drawn in his hand. Joshua went to him, and said to him, "Are you for us, or for our adversaries?"
He said, "No; but I have come now as commander of Yahweh's army." Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and worshipped, and said to him, "What does my lord say to his servant?"
The prince of Yahweh's army said to Joshua, "Take your shoes off of your feet; for the place on which you stand is holy." Joshua did so.
Do y'all know of any other OT passages that mention Jesus so prominently? Is this Jesus? What do y'all think?
