Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob

“Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob were all buried in Canaan (Genesis 49:29-30, 50:13, Canaan is the land that would be known as the land of Israel). They all believed in their hearts that at some future time they would rise to literally inherit the Promised Land. Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob wanted to rise up at the place God promised them and is why they were buried in that land, for they knew that what God promised them, He was also able to perform (Romans 4:20-21), and as common sense ordains they are not yet living there, hence it is still a future event for them.” ~LMJ~
