    Joshua 5:13-15

    Joshua had to lead the armies of Israel into many battles to rid the promised land of the existing nations. During one of those battles, Joshua suddenly encountered the Commander of the Lord’s army. Oddly, Joshua bowed down and worshipped Him. Who was this mysterious figure?
