Around two million, if not more. The men aged 20 to 60 were numbered 600,000 (Numbers ch. 26); and to this number must be added an equal number of women, plus elders, children, and the 23,000 Levites, who also all had wives, children and elders.

Yes. According to the Bible, God promised the Land of Israel to Abraham and his descendants, the Israelites, in Genesis 17: 8 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after… thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God. 9 And God said unto Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations. According to Genesis, the descendants of Abraham were the Israelites and the Arabs. That could lead one to conclude that the land was promised to the Israelites and also to the Arabs. The biblical promise, though, seems to be related specifically to Isaac (in Genesis 26:3) and Jacob, a.k.a. Israel (in Genesis 28:13 and Joshua 1:1-6). Answer #2The above was made void, because of Leviticus. 3rd Book of Moses. For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect: [ROMANS 4:13-14.] Law are only required by those whom lack FAITH!
Joshua. Moses was supposed to, but the people balked because a lack of faith. After Moses death, Joshua led the people into the promised land. Read more in the book of Joshua.… Moses was not allowed to enter the promised land because he disobeyed God's command to him. He struck a rock to bring forth water when God told him to speak to it.
Joshua and Caleb
According to the Bible, 600,000 fighting men escaped from Egypt. This excluded the priestly tribe of Levi, who were not considered fighting men. Scholars have estimated that, …including women and children, there would have to have been at least two and a half million people who left Egypt to wander in the desert. This compares to a total estimated population of three and a half million people in Egypt before the Exodus. When the Jews entered Palastine (the promised land), to take the land, it is estimated that in total they numbered as many as 2 million. This is done by taking the totals of the men of war from all the tribes of Israel listed in scripture when they were numbered, which were all males 20 and upward. Figure as many women, at least, plus a kid or so, and the number mushrooms up to 2 million even by conservative estimates. That's a pretty big invading force in those days! This was about 1451 b.c.
the promised land is in canaan
It isn't known. The census taken toward the end of the wilderness period mentioned 601,730 as being over 20 years old and able-bodied for war, but it does not specify how …many of this particular group had been present in Egypt. The children of Israel wandered for 40 years. What is in the word of God says that no-one over the age of 20 would enter the Promised Land, save Joshua and Caleb: Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against me, Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun. (Numbers 14:29-30) With this being said - if they were in the wilderness for 40 years, then those that murmured against God had to be over 20 years old, according to the time of their murmurings as found in Numbers. Those under 20 were not held accountable for this murmuring, unless we want to read into that there might have been some that were also refusing to obey and listen to God that would not enter the Promised Land. It is not revealed exactly how old that Joshua and Caleb were when they entered the Promised Land, but it is supposed that Joshua might have been about 60, therefore making him one of only 2 possible people that entered the Promised Land that left Egypt. Only two made it to the promised land Joshua,and Caleb. They were the two originals that came out of Egypt. The rest spent their time wandering the desert
The promised land is heaven.
they had got there by having a death and by being killed. that is how people get back to the promised land. A.K.A. heaven
The book of Numbers (26:51) says there were 601 thousand seven hundred and thirty mature Israelite males. To this must be added an equal number of women, plus children, fo…r a total of around two million. Of those who had left Egypt, Joshua and Caleb were the only men over the age of 20 years old that actually entered the Promised Land. The rest disobeyed God and did not live wholeheartedly for God, whereas Joshua and Caleb did. Those who disobeyed died off gradually in the wilderness, allowing enough time for them to have children (Numbers ch.14). "Surely none of the men who came up from Egypt, from twenty years old and above, shall see the land of which I swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, because they have not wholly followed Me, except Caleb the son of Jephunneh, the Kenizzite, and Joshua the son of Nun, for they have wholly followed the Lord." (Numbers 32:11-12) NKJV
they got too the promised land by fighting canaanites and crossing the sinai desert
The promised land is called Canaan.
A: The Bible does not tell us this, but seems to make the conquest seem almost bloodless on the Israelite side, with great cities like Jericho and Ai falling with ease. On t…he other hand, most scholars say there never was a conquest of the Promised Land as described in the Bible. The Israelites were actually Canaanites themselves, and the consensus is that they peacefully left the regions controlled by the powerful cities along the coast to settle in the previously sparsely populated hinterland. On this view, there were no casualities because the traditions of a conquest were only developed much later, after the Israelites had forgotten their real heritage.
It is not known. Answer The Bible never gives an exact amount of Israelites that entered the Promised Land. The Israelites wandered 40 years to reach the Promised Land, out of… all of the Israelites that left Egypt, only Joshua and Caleb were allowed to enter the Promised Land. The rest were to wander and not allowed to enter. The only other Israelites that were allowed to enter the Promised land were all of the Israelites that were under the age of 20 years old.
Canaan, and then Yisroel after the people who inhabited it.
