Understanding Testament: The Story of Moses in Brief

 

The storyline of Testament: The Story of Moses is based on the biblical version of the Book of Exodus. Therefore, there is debate on the accuracy showcased in Testament: The Story of Moses as religious scholars in Biblical History in Israel's Past have stated that the events in Exodus do not depict the exact tale of the princely prophet. As per the scholars mentioned in multiple reports, the Book of Exodus is not historically accurate when it comes to events related to Moses.

 

For those who are unaware, Moses is considered the most important prophet in Judaism and one of the most important prophets in Christianity, Islam, and other religions as well.  According to both the Bible and the Quran, Moses was the leader of the Israelites and lawgiver to whom the Prophetic authorship of the Torah (the first five books of the Bible) is attributed.

 

Keeping the controversies aside regarding the accuracy, the question arises where is The Promised Land where Moses could not go? Below is everything we know about the 'real-life; Promised Land- 

 

Where is the real-life Promised Land?

 

As shown in the docuseries quoting Exodus 3:17, the promised land is described as a place flowing with milk and honey signifying that it is a fertile place. The condition of the land is also described as being already occupied by other people including the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, and the Jebusites. In the series, Moses leads the Israelites to the Promised Land, however, they remain in the deserts for almost 40 years. As a result, Moses dies in the end but he is promised that the people will find the Promised Land and his children will live there. 

 

As per reports, the promised land is a real place on earth promised to Abraham. By faith, Abraham took his family and began the journey to this place which is today believed to be modern-day Israel, or territories outside it according to many.

 

It is said that the Promised Land is much greater than the 22,145 square kilometer area where Israel stands. As per reports, in Genesis 15:18, the boundary of this land is described as spanning from the river of Egypt to the river Euphrates. If this is to be taken into perspective, the promised land would probably include the entirety or parts of modern-day Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, and Kuwait.
