Twelve spies, sent out by Moses, now stand on the soil of an eight hundred year covenant promise made by God to their father Abraham . A covenant promise declaring a nation and land from Abraham’s own offspring (Genesis 13:14-18). These spies are in Hebron, the very place where God encountered Abraham with His promise.
As these spies look at Hebron they literally are on the verge of making history. The long-awaited fulfillment of the covenant made so long ago is now at hand.
But there is a problem in Hebron. The city where the covenant promise is made and the place where the Patriarchs (Abraham, Sara, Isaac, Jacob, Rebekah and Leah) are buried, is now populated with warring giants from the descendants of Anak.
