The Promised Land for The Chosen People, the People of God by birth

The Promised Land is the land which, according to The Old Testament, based primarily upon the Hebrew Bible, was promised and subsequently given by God to Abraham and his descendants. Joshua was called by God to lead the people of Israel into the Promised Land. The first city they came to was Jericho. There "They put everything in the city under the holy curse, killing man and woman, young and old, ox and sheep and donkey." Joshua 6 (explanation: Yahweh War and the Conquest of Canaan

The Battle of Jericho was the first battle of the Israelites in their conquest of Canaan and the extermination of the Canaanites,  (for incest commited by their ancestors, Noah's son Ham, and Lot's daughters, they were already punished with genetic defects, particularly the giant body size,  Why Was Canaan Cursed?)

The Promised Land for all, The New People of God  by faith in Christ and baptism

The Church Is the New People of God: John Paul II, General Audience, November 6, 1991

Christian interpretation: the expansion of the promise from singular to the plural is not based on genetic/physical association, but a spiritual/religious one:

"The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. Scripture does not say “and to seeds,” meaning many people, but “and to your seed,” meaning one person, who is Christ." Galatians 3:16
"There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, neither male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise."Galatians 3:28-29
In  it is written:
"It was not through the law that Abraham and his offspring received the promise that he would be heir of the world, but through the righteousness that comes by faith." Romans 4:13  (written while Paul was in Corinth, in winter of AD 57-58.Paul wrote to the Roman Christians in order to give them a substantial resume of his theology.)

Information on the site: "Saint Paul is also known as the Apostle of the Nations because of his missionary journeys throughout the eastern Mediterranean (46-58 AD) for the dissemination of Christianity. In this context he visited several Greek cities, including Samothrace, Philippi, Thessalonica, Berea, Athens and, most importantly, Corinth. Corinth, a Roman imperial colony and capital of the province of Achaea (Peloponnese and Central Greece), experienced a period of great prosperity during the Roman era. Saint Paul arrived in the city in the mid-1st c. A.D. and took up lodging and work with the Jewish tentmakers Aquila and Priscilla. At the same time, he reasoned and preached the Gospel to the Jews of the city, being confronted, however, with strong opposition from several members of the city's large Jewish community. Saint Paul thus resolved to devote his full attention to the conversion of the Gentiles, a decision which proved highly successful. After a year and a half of his sojourn in Corinth, Saint Paul left for Ephesus, having established a strong and well-organised church in the city. Even after his departure, he kept in contact with the community; in fact, he addressed some of his most famous epistitles the "epistles to the Corinthians', to its leaders.
Saint Paul and the Bema of the Roman Forum.
During Paul's stay in Corinth, he was brought for judgment before the proconsul Gallia on the accusation of conducting illegal teathings. Gallio, however, refused to judge what he considered to be a mere religious dispute among the Jews. According to tradition, the site of Paul's trial was the Bema, a large elevated rostrum standing prominently in the centre of the Roman forum of ancient Coirinth and from where the city's officials addressed the public. Probably because the monument's connection to Saint Paul, the Bema was transformed into a Christian church during the Byzantine period. Today, the monument constitutes the historical seat of the Metropolis of Corinth and the location when a Great Vesper is conducted on the feast of Saint Paul (29th June)."

29 “My brothers, I can tell you for sure about David, our great ancestor. He died, was buried, and his tomb is still here with us today. 30 He was a prophet and knew something that God had said. God had promised David that someone from his own family would sit on David’s throne as king. 31 David knew this before it happened. That is why he said this about that future king: ‘He was not left in the place of death. His body did not rot in the grave.’ David was talking about the Messiah rising from death. 32 So Jesus is the one God raised from death. We are all witnesses of this. We saw him. 33 Jesus was lifted up to heaven. Now he is with God, at God’s right side. The Father has given the Holy Spirit to him, as he promised. So Jesus has now poured out that Spirit. This is what you see and hear. 34 David was not the one who was lifted up to heaven. David himself said, ‘The Lord God said to my Lord: Sit at my right side, 35 until I put your enemies under your power. Acts 2:29-35 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
