The Holy Land and the chosen people


An interesting observation by Steven Sizer.

Contrary to popular assumption, the Scriptures repeatedly insist that the [Holy] land belongs to God and that residence was always conditional. For example, God said to his people, “‘The land must not be sold permanently, because the land is mine and you reside in my land as foreigners and strangers” (Leviticus 25:23).
