Bible study 130 – Numbers 13Posted: February 10, 2017
The Israelites have now reached the Negeb desert, just south of Canaan where they are headed. God has Moses send one leader from each tribe into Canaan to spy out the country. The spies return with reports of a fruitful country with strong inhabitants, but Caleb of the tribe of Judah insists that they can overcome them with God’s help. The rest of the spies get cold feet and lie to the other Israelites about the Canaanites being giants who can’t be defeated.
There we saw the Nephilim (the Anakites come from the Nephilim); and to ourselves we seemed like grasshoppers, and so we seemed to them.
