Pinchas, the son of Elazar, the son of Aharon, is representative of the new generation of the land of Israel, a generation of action and initiative.

Whereas G-d led the generation of the desert through Moshe, feeding, sheltering and fighting their battles for them, from now on it will be up to the children of Israel to take the lead in fending for themselves, secure in the knowledge, of course, that G-d is always with them.
