This man is likened to the man Jacob wrestled with, a man and divine beings. A man who is “three persons of spirit” that the L-rd can speak through as He did Moses and is symbolized in the story where the L-rd appeared to Abraham by the terebinths of Mamre as three men standing near him. It is also found in the story of Elijah where double his spirit requested by Elisha is in Hebrew also two thirds of Elijah’s spirit.
This meeting between the captain of the L-rd’s host and Joshua is the first foretelling and description of the HaMoshiach to come.

14He replied, “No, I am captain of the Lord’s host. Now I have come!”
Joshua threw himself face down to the ground and, prostrating himself, said to him, “What does my lord command his servant?”
15The captain of the Lord’s host answered Joshua, “Remove your sandals from your feet, for the place where you stand is holy.” And Joshua did so. Joshua Chapter 5/13-15 Tanakh JPS 1985.
25Jacob was left alone. And a man wrestled with him until the break of dawn. 26When he saw that he had not prevailed against him, he wrenched Jacob’s hip at its socket, so that the socket of his hip was strained as he…
