Why the Land of Canaan?
I'm posing a question more than adding insight. I'm trying to figure out why Terah would have set off for Canaan?
There's nothing that says God gave him an insight, and the Biblical account doesn't give Abram's call to Canaan until after Terah's death. So my question is; why would Terah, a descendent of Shem, head to Canaan, the land of the cursed brother (Noah cursed Ham's son Canaan to be the servants of Shem and Japheth in Gn 9)? What was the draw to Canaan for Terah and his sons?
After I can get this question answered, my next question naturally becomes why, then, didn't Terah continue his journey into Canaan? What made him stop?
Please, if you have any insights, email me directly since I doubt I will even remember to check this website! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
