God’s Land

In Ages in Chaos, in the chapters dealing with Queen Hatshepsut (Hashepsowe) and with Thutmose III, I could show that by God’s Land (Divine Land) was meant the Holy Land of Biblical and post-Biblical times: It must have had that appelative since very early times.

If the description of Hatshepsut’s travels left place to query the whereabouts of Divine Land (not after the publication of Ages in Chaos Vol, I ), the war annals of Thutmose left no room for any other identification, but as Palestine.

Frankincense was grown there. Newer discoveries (like those of Mazar at Ein-Gedi) show that this was also the case on the shores of the Dead Sea.
