Land plays an important role in the Bible. Genesis begins with humans living in the Lord’s presence in a divinely gifted land and Revelation ends with redeemed humans living in the Lord’s presence in a fully renewed land. Everything in between is the development of God’s people in (and out) of God’s land. So we can’t relegate “the land” to the role of scenic background or maps. We need to take “the land” seriously and appreciate its ongoing significance for us today. We hope you'll see how the land was God’s to give and God’s to take away. It was both a gift and a responsibility, which makes for a pretty interesting story when humans get involved.
