Excuse me for getting personal in the entry today, but there are moments in reading these texts that the details jump off the page and become real life for me. When Jenny and I went to the Holy Land, we stood on the same mountain that Moses stood on when God showed him the land they were to posses. In the picture, I’m showing Jenny some of these very sites that are listed in this passage, the palaces where the fights took place and the land that was given to each tribe. It was very surreal to stand in the dirt Moses stood in and look over the land that is still theirs today.
