Christ was to be born in "The Promised Land " (Canaan), from the descendants of Abraham, who had "moved " to Egypt. And now the Lord had to "send" them back, and He did. Their forty year journey in the wilderness to Canaan is one of the most fascinating events ever to take place. It is truly a unique event unparalleled in world history. It surpasses all levels of human imagination, the reason being that God himself was the "author" of this "story". This divine story provides the contemporary man with hope. Hopefully, you will find it interesting.
