Numbers 13

  1. To what places in Canaan did the spies go?
    Look up Hebron and the Valley of Eshcol on a map.
    What were they commissioned to discover, and what report did they give?
  2. What lay behind the opposing views expressed in 13:30 and 31?
    Were Caleb and Joshua being unrealistically optimistic and refusing to face facts?
    What was the outcome of the people’s fear and unbelief?
    Note. 13:32. ‘The Land we explored devours those living in it’: this probably refers to the constant wars between its people, and their ferocity in internecine strife.
