Othniel and Achsah

Joshua 15: 16 - 17: And Caleb said, He that smiteth Kirjathsepher, and taketh it, to him will I give Achsah my daughter to wife. And Othniel the son of Kenaz, the brother of Caleb, took it: and he gave him Achsah his daughter to wife.

Kirjathsepher was a city in Canaan that became part of Judah’s inheritance; the name means in Hebrew, “City of the Book”. Othniel (who later became Israel’s first judge; Judges 3: 9) responded to the challenge set by Caleb of taking the city and was rewarded by being given Caleb’s daughter (Achsah) as his wife.

Othniel represents Christ. Christ is the Lion of the tribe of Judah (remembering that Kirjathsepher was located in Judah’s inheritance) who prevailed (Revelation 5: 5) to take the Book (remembering that “Kirjathsepher” means in Hebrew, “City of the Book”) and loose the seven seals.

Achsah was a sealed book (she was a virgin), but the One who prevailed could break the seal, because that city was a type of a woman; it was an inheritance. Christ prevailed over sin and death on the cross and received to Himself a virgin Bride whose seal has been broken by the seed Word of God sown inside her; she is part of the Book that the mighty Angel held in His hand (Revelation 10: 2); the Book of Her life has been unsealed so that she can fully see who She is in Christ.
