The Passover had just happened. (Josh. 5:10) Israel remembered that the Lord had saved them from slavery 40 years earlier. The Lord had brought them into the land, crossing Jordan. (Josh. 3-4) At Passover they ate of the Land that flowed with milk and honey, and grain too. The manna stopped. (Josh. 5:11-12) They could make their own honey cakes now. God had given them a land that flowed with all the ingredients they needed. A land like Eden. But first to conquer to the land.
