Hidden Gospel prophesy of the Bible about Jesus Christ
Our story is told in the Book of Joshua 6:26
This is the story the people led by Joshua in taking over the fortress of Jericho. This town was a cursed one and it was dedicated to God with all there was in it: humans, kids, beasts, gold, things, etc. And in the 26th verse Joshua pronounced the oath. He said that anyone who rebuilds the city, is to pay for it with the murder of his firstborn son.

Later on in the Book of 1 Kings 16:34 a man has rebuilt the city and suffered the passing of his firstborn son.
Still, that is not the end of the story. It is a hidden story of the Gospel in the Scriptures. It tells us of the Maundy Thursday, Christ's passions on the cross and salvation plan.
The city of Jericho is the archetype of this sinful world and God is the one who rebuilds it at the cost of His one and only son life. Jesus Christ is that Son. On Holy Thursday He has given away His life for us, for the cursed and doomed world, where nothing could survive the dignity of God and His wrath.
God has rebuilt this lost town of Jericho and you and me along with it. The Lamb of God Jesus Christ paid the price and fulfilled the cursed. Paul writes that He has taken up the curse of the Law for us.
On the Palm Sunday we celebrate the coming of the Son of God, who carries the sins of the cursed world.
and on the Easter Sunday we celebrate God’s victory over sin and death.
Every born again Christian praises God for what He has done for us. He has set the highest price possible for our redemption and He has paid it in full – giving away His only Son Jesus. This Old Testament story has much more to it than it looks at first. It is the story of great love and great sacrifice of the loving God and His Son. Let us praise Him, for He is worthy of praise!
