    Great topic, which reminds me of an example and cool insight Rebecca Stay shared, during an adult institute class on the OT, about the meaning of the name of Joshua [in Hebrew] and the role he played.

    [timestamp 46:22 – 47:56].

    Joshua [H3091]
    • Hebrew: יְהוֹשׁוּעַ
    • Transliteration: Yehoshua
    • Pronunciation: (yeh-ho-shoo’-ah)
    • Definition: From [H3068] and [H3467]; Jehovah saved; the LORD is salvation
