Some Bible scholars think Caleb or his tribe came from a pagan people who were assimilated into the Jewish nation. Caleb's name means "raging with canine madness." His story appears in the book of Numbers, after the Israelite's had escaped Egypt and arrived at the border of the Promised Land.

When Moses sent 12 spies into Canaan to scout the territory, only he and Joshua reported the land was ripe for the taking. Note: He was a Gentile who represented the tribe of Judah, from which came Jesus Christ, savior of the world.

Caleb’s story is tied Joshua. Both are 2 Israelite men whose stories offer an example of faithful commitment to the Lord. Both men came out of Egypt with the Israelites through the Red Sea and into the wilderness and both were selected along with 10 other men to explore the Promised Land and give a report to Moses and the people as they prepared to possess it.

Caleb served the Lord and Joshua until his death. He was a man who continuously put his faith in God to handle the dangers around him. After the death of Moses 40 years later, Joshua led the people across the Jordan River into the Promised Land. Caleb received an inheritance in the Promised Land in his old age (Joshua 14) then he conquered the territory around Hebron, defeating the giant sons of Anak: Ahiman, Sheshai, and Talmai.

Joshua began life in Egypt as a slave, under cruel Egyptian taskmasters, but he rose to be the leader of Israel through faithful obedience to God. Moses gave Hosea his new name: Joshua, “Yeshua,” which means "the Lord is Salvation." Before the Jews entered Canaan, Moses died and Joshua became his successor. The Israelites set about to conquer the land of Canaan, under the Lord's guidance. God said to Joshua, "Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." (Joshua 1:9, NIV).

While serving Moses, Joshua was also learned much from the great leader. Joshua showed tremendous courage, despite the huge responsibility assigned to him. He was a brilliant military commander and prospered because he trusted God with every aspect of his life. Joshua suffered only one defeat. Before the Battle of Gibeon, Joshua failed to consult God as he always did. On this occasion, he entered a deceptive peace treaty with the people of Gibeon. God had forbidden Israel to make treaties with any people in Canaan. If Joshua had sought God's guidance first, he would not have made this mistake.

Some Bible scholars view Joshua as an Old Testament foreshadowing, of Jesus Christ, the promised Messiah.
