Land of Canaan
Canaan was Israel’s new home. It was a region occupied by the Canaanites before it was taken and settled by the Jewish people. The land of Canaan stretched from the Jordan River on the east to the Mediterranean Sea on the west. Much of the land was unfit for cultivation, but it also contained many fertile farmlands. While leading the people of Israel toward the land of Canaan, Moses sent scouts into the territory to check the area out.
They came back with grapes, pomegranates and figs to verify the fertility of the land. The land was ideally situated on trade routes from Egypt in the south, to Syria and Phoenicia in the north. This gave the Israelites a thriving commercial system of trading goods with other nations along these ports.
After 400 years of Egyptian captivity, 40 years of wandering in the desert, and years of fighting the Canaanites for the land the nation of Israel could exhale, look around and remember all the Lord’s promises that led them to this very point.
