New Defender's Study Bible Notes

7:45 with Jesus. This reference, of course, is to Joshua, whose name was the Hebrew form of “Jesus,” (meaning “Jehovah the Savior,” or simply “salvation”). Possibly Stephen inserted this name here deliberately in order to subtly call attention to the parallel ministries of Joshua, who conquered Canaan, and Jesus, who had come to conquer Satan, sin and death.
