Hosea means "salvation". Moses changed his name to Joshua because it means " Jehovah is salvation". Moses in Numbers 20 when he was told by Jehovah to speak to the rock and water would come out for the Israelites to drink. Forgot that it was Jehovah who gave him the power and instead gave himself (Moses) the glory. And that's why he was not aloud to enter ...


I believe the name change symbolizes a task ahead.I believe like Abraham who's name was changed to align with his future duties,Moses not knowing was led to change the name of Joshua who later led the Israelite's to the promised land instead of Moses.
