Twelve Spies Explore Canaan

Before deciding how to mount a military campaign against the existing inhabitants of Canaan, Moses needed accurate and up-to-date information about the settlements and their fortifications. To gain this vital intelligence, he sent a dozen ‘undercover agents’ on a six-week mission in c.1445BC to secure details about the defences of the towns and cities that could become future military targets.

Moses sent the twelve spies, including Joshua and Caleb, to explore the whole land of Canaan, from the Kadesh region in the south to as far north as Lebo Hamath – over 150 miles.

The spies travelled north, secretly, for three weeks from the Desert of Zin in the south, beyond Beersheba (where Isaac had settled some three hundred years earlier in c.1730BC) and on past Shechem (where Jacob had set up an altar and bought land for a tomb in c.1691BC). From here they continued north to Rehob and Lebo Hamath (‘Hamath Pass’) in the far north of Canaan near Damascus. On their way back south, they passed Hebron (where Abraham was buried in Machpelah Cave in c.1815BC) and cut a large cluster of grapes from the Valley of Eshcol (‘Eshcol’ means ‘a cluster’) before returning after forty days to the Israelite camp at Kadesh oasis in the Desert of Paran.

If we stay within the bounds of scripture there are limits to the number of Bible maps that can be created. So we have been looking for ways to enhance our existing maps and fortunately have found sources of information that encourage the use of their work.

We are using the “overlay” technique (sometimes called pop-ups or modals) to present this added information. For instance, the image of the Gideon map shows a clickable link “The Judges” which will bring up an overlay with text and photos.

Stay tuned more on the way.

We have added our first new map (The Tribal Allotments of Israel) to the re-designed iBible Maps website. This map features a pop-up window describing the tribal allotments and a new capability for adding "hot spots" to the map. These hot spots enable the linking of scripture and other information and are activated by hovering over them.

We have just completed a total re-design of our Bible maps website. The new site is built in Wordpress and is fully mobile friendly. Each map invites interaction with the visitor. In the near term we will be finding ways to add more information to each map page of the website, and will be developing a few more maps.
