A Bible Journey, 150: The Journeys Of The Children Of Israel
"These are the journeys of the children of Israel, which went forth out of the land of Egypt"
The LORD (Who was and is Jesus Christ; see The Real Jesus: The Word Of The LORD God and A Bible Journey, 56: The Sacred Name) led the Israelites southward through the Sinai Peninsula to Mount Sinai after the Exodus (see A Bible Journey, 69: The Camp At Mount Sinai).
After receiving the Law of the LORD (see A Bible Journey, 70: The Christian Ten Commandments, the LORD then led them northward to the Negev Desert of present-day Israel (see The Negev Of Israel), where and when they could have entered the Promised land only a little over just one year after the Exodus.
The Israelites however refused to enter their homeland, so the LORD turned them around and had them wander in circles in the Sinai wilderness for forty years, until the adult rebels of the Exodus had all died off (see A Bible Journey, 131: The Sinai Sentence). It was the children and grandchildren of the Exodus generation who entered the Promised Land under the leadership of Joshua (see the Fact Finder question below).
"33:1 These are the journeys of the children of Israel, which went forth out of the land of Egypt with their armies under the hand of Moses and Aaron. 33:2 And Moses wrote their goings out according to their journeys by the commandment of the LORD: and these are their journeys according to their goings out.
Moses himself did not cross the Jordan, although he died and was buried in what became the territory of Israel east of the Jordan River (see A Bible Journey, 149: The Eastside Israelites).
"33:50 And the LORD spake unto Moses in the plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho, saying, 33:51 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye are passed over Jordan into the land of Canaan; 33:52 Then ye shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, and destroy all their pictures, and destroy all their molten images, and quite pluck down all their high places: 33:53 And ye shall dispossess the inhabitants of the land, and dwell therein: for I have given you the land to possess it. 33:54 And ye shall divide the land by lot for an inheritance among your families: and to the more ye shall give the more inheritance, and to the fewer ye shall give the less inheritance: every man's inheritance shall be in the place where his lot falleth; according to the tribes of your fathers ye shall inherit.
Fact Finder: How is it that nearly all of the Israelites who entered the Promised Land were never slaves - and were never in Egypt?
