About Joshua / יהושע בן נון .

Joshua (Hebrew: יְהוֹשֻׁעַ‎‎ Y'hoshuʿa; Greek: Ἰησοῦς, Arabic: يوشع بن نون‎ Yusha ʿ ibn Nūn), is a minor figure in the Torah, being one of the spies for Israel (Num 13-14) and in few passages as Moses's assistant. He turns to be the central character in the Hebrew Bible's Book of Joshua. According to the books Exodus, Numbers and Joshua, he became the leader of the Israelite tribes after the death of Moses; his name was Hoshea the son of Nun, of the tribe of Ephraim, but Moses called him Joshua, (Numbers 13:16) the name by which he is commonly known; and he was born in Egypt prior to the Exodus, and was probably the same age as Caleb, with whom he is occasionally associated.
