Lesson Overview

Nothing is more vital to our physical life than water, so it is not surprising that water is mentioned somewhat frequently in the Bible. But the water realities of those living in the Promised Land were very different than our own. In this session, we will look at the water supply of this land, the challenges of acquiring it, and the creative solutions used to keep it accessible.

Lesson Objectives

When you complete this lesson, you should be able to do the following:

  • Explain the nature of a rain-sourced water system like that in the Promised Land.
  • Understand the challenges a rain-sourced system imposed on those living in ancient Israel.
  • Identify and distinguish the various types of water resources developed in Bible times so that people had access to a supply of fresh water.
