Under Joshua's leadership, the children of Israel crossed the river Jordan on dry ground, making their entrance in to the promised land. (Joshua 3:17) It is true that some of the tribes received their inheritance on the east side of the river Jordan, but the promised land is most often referring to the land on the west side of the Jordan. 2 "Moses My servant is dead. Now therefore, arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them--the children of Israel. (Joshua 1:2) This happened in approx. 1470 B.C. The date for the Exodus and resultant entry into the promised land is fixable by reference to:

1And it came to pass in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month Zif, which is the second month, that he began to build the house of the LORD. The science of Archaeology has fixed the date of the temple to around 961BC and thus the Exodus was thus close to 1441 BC. With 40 years of wilderness wandering, this gives an entry into the promised land of 1401 BC.
