Chumash - Moshe in Eretz Yisroel?
Submitted by shmuel  Answered by Rabbi Shaul Rosenberg
Answer: I would say that you are right. According to Targum Yonason, Moshe did go in to Eretz Yisroel before the Gezairah. I just wanted to point out that some say a Remez to Targum Yonason from this week's Parsha. Before Sheni it says, "VaYivianu El Hamom Hazeh (the Bais Hamikdosh) Vayiten Lanu Es HaAretz Hazos (Eretz Yisroel). " Why does the Torah mention first the place of the Mikdash and then Eretz Yisroel? Didn't they first enter Eretz Yisroel before coming to the Makom Hamikdosh?
According to Targum it is very good, since they first came to the Makom Hamikdosh at the time of Yitzias Mitzrayim.
