Trivia 5/24

trivia 5/24
Animation artists love inside jokes. In the Disney film Beauty and the Beast (1991), the road signs that Belle’s father encounters in the forest show the names of two California cities: one points to Anaheim, while the other points down a dark, sinister-looking path to Valencia. In truth, Anaheim is the site of Disneyland, while the rival Six Flags Magic Mountain amusement theme park is in the city of Valencia.

That would be Joshua ....
The Lord said to Joshua ; "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)

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.

“Bad men need nothing more to accomplish their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing.”
― John Stuart Mill
