The land of Canaan is called the 'holy land'. It is the land God promised to the fathers of Israel for an everlasting possession. It lies between the Mediterranean Sea on the west, and the river Jordan on the east. The north boundary is the mountains of Lebanon, and to the south the Negev desert. It also includes territory to the east of Jordan formerly in Bible times occupied by the peoples of Moab, Edom and Ammon.

"See, I have given you this land. Go in and take possession of the land that the Lord swore He would give to your fathers-to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob-and to their descendants after them." (Deuteronomy 1:6-8).

Israel lacked the faith and spiritual discipline to occupy the land fully. After a short time as God's 'kingdom on earth', Israel was conquered and the land became successively a province of the Babylonian, Persian, Greek, Roman, Ottoman and Turkish Empires. It is now occupied by modern Israel. It is still God's holy land, and when Jesus returns as king, he will make Jerusalem his capital city, fulfilling God's promise to the fathers, and bringing peace and prosperity to the whole world.
