The Trek of the Tribes as They Settled in Canaan

If Biblical traditions represent some kind of historical memory, albeit edited, it should be interesting to examine the geographical involvement of the various tribes in each other’s territorial allotment. This may indicate the early presence of these families, or tribes, in another’s territory before the final division of the land took place. Moreover, this examination should also enable us to follow the path of Israelite expansion after the initial entry from Transjordan into the territory of Manasseh, as described in the preceding article.
