There are many stories in the Bible of people having to leave their homeland for new places. Joseph and Mary were told to leave Bethlehem and move to Egypt; not next week, and not after they have returned to Nazareth to pick up belongings and say good bye to family and friends, but NOW, and to a country they knew nothing about, no friends, no family. That had to be scary and traumatic to a young newlywed couple with a young child.

Abram was also told by God to “Leave your country, your family, and your father's home for a land that I will show you.” He was 75 at the time, not a time in one’s life that you contemplate a major move to another country.
