It is important to obey God now as in the days of Moses and Joshua.
Joshua. Deuteronomy 31:14 Then the LORD said to Moses, "Behold, the days approach when you must die; call Joshua, and present yourselves in the tabernacle of meeting, that I may inaugurate him." So Moses and Joshua went and presented themselves in the tabernacle of meeting.
They were from different tribes. Moses was a Levite; Joshua an Ephraimite.According to Josephus, Joshua was 35 years younger; but due to Joshua's zeal for Jehovah, the two men drew close, despite their age difference. (Somewhat like David and Jonathan.)Joshua was Moses' attendant. When Moses went into Mount Sinai, Joshua stayed up there (perhaps part way up) also for 40 days. Joshua also got to see the 'glory of the God of Israel'.Joshua was one of two faithful spies for Moses among the 12 who spied out the Promised Land for 40 days.Joshua was also an army general for Moses (Ex 17:9).He was also one of the 70 older men chosen by Moses to represent Moses in judicial problems among the people.It was Moses who 'placed his hand on Joshua' and appointed him to be his successor.
Moses only talked and listened to god, for 40 days , but he did not see him face to face.
Moses died at the end of the 40-year period of wandering in the wilderness about 1405BC ( thus making Moses born about 1525BC) when he transferred the leadership to Joshua:-Deu 31:1-2 KJV And Moses went and spake these words unto all Israel. [v. 2] And he said unto them, I am an hundred and twenty years old this day; I can no more go out and come in: also the LORD hath said unto me, Thou [Moses] shalt not go over this Jordan.Deu 31:7 KJV And Moses called unto Joshua, and said unto him in the sight of all Israel, Be strong and of a good courage: for thou [Joshua] must go with this people unto the land which the LORD hath sworn unto their fathers to give them; and thou shalt cause them to inherit it.Deu 34:7-9 KJV And Moses was an hundred and twenty years old when he died: his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated. [v. 8] And the children of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days: so the days of weeping and mourning for Moses were ended. [v. 9] And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom; for Moses had laid his hands upon him: and the children of Israel hearkened unto him, and did as the LORD commanded Moses.Working backwards from Joshua 24:29 when Joshua died at 110 to this leadership change makes Joshua about 90 when this happened, so this would make him born about 1495BC.
People mourned for Moses 30 days.
Jesus rose three days later!
moses was adopted by the daughter of the pharoh of his days.
The Bible mentioned nothing about whether Joshua participated in the fasting or not. Exodus 34:28 however specifically mentioned that "he (Moses) was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments." By comparison, we can deduce that Joshua might not have fasted, otherwise the Bible could have included a comment/statement there. On the other hand, it appears that 40-day fasting has been specifically mentioned in the Bible and those individuals who attempted it have been named clearly. We know Moses, Elijah and Jesus all fasted for 40 days and it has been accurately documented in the Bible. It seems to us that if Joshua had fasted 40 days, the Bible would have indicated the same clearly. Therefore, we can safely say that Joshua did not fast 40 days with Moses.
