It's going to take me a while with this...

Here are some of my answers that differed with yours, but it may be the interpretation of the question ...

Let's start with Section A

5. Led the Israelites into the promised land?

You said Moses (Exodus 3)

It is my understanding that Moses was not allowed into the promised land, that Joshua is the one who led the people. Moses and his generation were to die before the people could enter the promised land.

“Because you did not trust in me enough to honor me as holy in the sight of the Israelites, you will not bring this community into the land I give them” (Numbers 20:12).


Right Truth

Excellent point. Moses led them TO the land; Joshua actually led them IN.
