Welcome to JoshuaNet. This site is dedicated primarily to providing information relating to Christianity and its influence in the world. As you will see however, it does not mean that we are limited to topics about religion. Later in this page we will explain the meaning of the name and the icon at the top of the page.
The top navigation bar will take you to various areas of interest. Including, Bible articles, Bible quizzes, pictures of mission trips, tools to search the Bible; as well as pictures of some old baseball cards, information on our American heritage and more. Go ahead and explore the various sections. You can always return to this page by clicking the JoshuaNet.org portion of the logo. Also, clicking on the section title (e.g., Bible Topics) will take you to the main page for the applicable section.
The following section The name Joshua is the transliteration of the Hebrew name, Yeshua, from which the Greek transliteration of Jesus is derived. Both mean "Yahweh (or Jehovah) saved us."
The Net portion comes from two different areas. First, many of the original twelve apostles of Jesus were fishermen. The primary method of catching fish was to throw nets in the water. We see that in the Gospel accounts. However, Jesus told His followers that He would make them “fishers of men.” Second, the contemporary use of the term Net for the internet. As stated the primary purpose of this website is to tell the good news of Jesus Christ through the technology of the internet. Thus our logo which displays two men rescuing another man from a storm by catching him in a fishing net. Our desire is that those who are spiritually lost or need help will find some assistance here at “JoshuaNet.”About JoshuaNet will give a little more information about us.
