Joshua is a type of Christ in the old testament.   It translates to the name of Jesus in the new testament.   The link below is an amazing explanation of the name Joshua, and how it translates throughout the 3 languages of the bible.
This is a must read!

ps. If you seek you will find.   Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life.   The whole old testament is written about him.   He makes all things new.   Moses was the old (like the law) and Joshua represented the new (a portrait of Christ giving us the power to live and take possession of our promise land here on earth-the spirit filled life)
