Atlas and Geography (Updated August, 2010)

This page includes links to some excellent full color maps (127 maps) as well as older maps. Here's how to get to the color maps - click the link Atlas and Geography. Then click the Color Map ("Bible Atlas with 127 maps"). Now click your back button on your web browser (I cannot understand why this works but this will bring up the index of the Bible Atlas in the right frame - yes, it is in German but the Scriptures should help you determine what the map contains).

Here is an example of the quality of the maps you will see - (1) Table of Nations, (2) Time of the Patriarchs, (3) Migration of Abraham, (4) Kingdoms of David and Solomon (it is my understanding that this is as "big" as Israel became in terms of land acquired - thus they have yet to receive all the land God promised Abraham in Ge 15:18, 19, 20, 21 - the fulfillment of this promise awaits the Second Coming of the Messiah). You may have to click on several links before you find the atlas so don't become frustrated. The maps are present! (At least as of August, 2010). (This is a German site).

This is an interesting tool which links the Biblical place names with the corresponding Scriptural references. In the 3 categories below you can hold the mouse pointer over the Place Name to see Bible passages that mention that name and if you want more information click the actual place name which links to an compilation of Bible dictionary articles all on one page! Very handy. Below are the 3 subdivisions.

Bible Topics Index

Interesting site (The Visual Bible - see search box below. See also a compilation of their Bible Study Tools) with images, pictures, maps on topics not always found on Christian websites. You need to at least be aware of this resource which represents a significant collection of materials related to the Bible - e.g., there are over 2000 pictures indexed under "Bible archaeology" The maps are of high quality and can be downloaded for non-commercial use at no charge.

Bible Maps for every OT and NT location

These color maps are attractive and include two interesting features: (1) Scripture references in which the place name is found (some entries have all the Scriptures, others only representative entries) and (2) Bible Dictionary article (International Standard Bible Encyclopedia) describing the specific name. Very nice tool!

Bible Map by Google

Utilizing the well known Google satellite maps, a choice of either the ESV or the KJV and the information in the 1913 International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (ISBE), this tool has links built into the passages that will open a window connected to the name of the place in the passage. For example, type in Genesis 12 in the Bible window. Furthermore some of the information windows include a collection of photographs of the place you are studying. This is what computers are good at doing and it will probably become one of my favorites as they tweak it. And if you have another free tool InstaVerse you can pop up all of the Scripture references in the ISBE article. Remember that only the KJV is free with the initial install of Instaverse. Other popular versions are available for purchase. When you hold the mouse pointer over a Scripture reference anywhere on the Web (as well as offline in Word for Windows, email, etc) the passage pops up immediately. InstaVerse can be disabled if the popups become distractive. This utility really does work and makes it easy to read the actual passage in context and not just the chapter and verse reference.

Bible Maps, Charts, Timelines

Charts of all 66 Books - generally well done (but be a Berean!- eg, I disagree with their Revelation chart) (See onsite study of Revelation charted out - Rev 4-10; Rev 11-16; Rev 17-19; Rev 20-22

Subcategories (please be discerning)

Bible Atlas - All Places Names Alphabetized + Scriptures

Uses Google maps and locates every place named in Scripture and includes the Scriptural reference. Add the free tool InstaVerse (see description in next entry). Allows you to get a good general idea of the location but in absence of other named well known sites, one loses the sense of context. It is still worth examining, but I think the tool in the next entry may prove more useful.

Maps on E-sword

Click E-sword is one of the best free Bible study software available (list of maps available). Multiple reference resources can be downloaded free of charge, easily installed. Online video tutorials. Many of my students have downloaded this program and all have given positive reviews. If you don't have a computer Bible program, consider this program.

Timeline - Primarily Historical Events

Click the link above - the page that opens has a timeline at the top of the page. This timeline deals primarily with historical events related to Christianity beginning in AD 1-300 (a few events in the 6000-1BC tab). Click the tab of the date range you are interested in and then click on specific people or events. Interesting especially for us history aficionados. From Christian History Institute.


Some other new additions to the Timelines, Sources of pictures and/or Maps...

Timeline of the Bible - nice dating of the Kings of the Northern Kingdoms and the Southern Kingdom

Bible Diagrams - 2000 Year Biblical Timeline - very interesting - combines a timeline with diagrammatic representation of select Biblical events.

Search Engine for Maps and Images at the Visual Bible: E.g., enter "Tarsus" to retrieve pictures related to this site.

Note: Type in Corinth, hit Search and results open in a new window. Now click one of the maps to enlarge and you will see a watermark ("Faith Images"). I have discussed this issue with the webmaster and he states that (1) all the maps and images can be freely used in any non-profit setting (talks, websites, etc), (2) the watermark is scheduled to be removed in the future and (3) finally when you download the map or image it will not have the watermark. Some information including email address is required to enable the free download. Note that when you enlarge a map or image, other resource options will appear, some of which include well written articles in the Tyndale Bible Dictionary.

Or Click Here for a listing of all 182 maps

One nice feature of this search engine is that maps and images will be retrieved that relate to the specific Bible references. For example, perform a search on "Acts 16" and you will retrieve the Scripture passage in addition to a map of Paul's third missionary journey and a picture of the river where Lydia was converted as she listened to Paul proclaim the Gospel.

Bible Mapper

Interested in making your own fully interactive, accurate and attractive maps? Read about the Bible Mapper a free (as of May, 2008) tool which allows you to make your own maps with place names, notes, etc. (see examples of maps produced with Bible Mapper). Note that this program does requires a free registration key from the author to unlock all of the features. While no technical support is available, there is a Wiki for Bible Mapper (eg, read this informative note and see a sample map). Very interesting tool.

The Glory Story - The Bible in Pictures from Genesis to Revelation

Genesis to Revelation in still pictures & text, to tell the Bible story! Down load, print, publish, power-point project the pictures!

These pictures are originals and from my brief review (comparing the actual picture to what the Scripture states) appear to accurately picture the people, places and events in God's Holy Word.

RECOMMENDATION: This would be an excellent tool to supplement your Sunday School class. Another powerful use of these pictures would be in presentation of the gospel cross culturally (short term or long term mission trips, to hidden peoples who do not yet have the Scriptures in their language or for that matter lack an actual written language!)

Revelation Artwork -

Click for 42 pictures which are beautiful but note this artwork is copyright.

This site also has links to a commentary on the Revelation of Jesus Christ but I would strongly recommend that you first do a Precept Upon Precept study on prophecy before you read any commentary notes on Revelation. When I led the 2 year Precept course on Revelation, I made the mistake of looking at the commentaries and became quite confused until I went back to simply observing the Scripture. The best plan to become proficient in prophecy is to first do the Precept Upon Precept Course on Daniel (I know it's long but you will never regret the investment) as it forms the foundation for the accurate interpretation of your observations in the 4 Precept courses on the Revelation. I spent almost 3 years leading classes through Daniel and Revelation but it was the best investment of time I have ever made in studying prophetic literature. You can purchase commentaries but as discussed above you will find that in the area of eschatology ("future events") there is probably more disagreement and confusion amongst even the most conservative and orthodox Biblical scholars then in any other area of Biblical interpretation. Find a Precept class in your area (call Precept at 1-800-763-8280 to find a class near you...preferably one that is beginning the study of Daniel in preparation for the Revelation study or coerce your local Precept leader to begin this series if they've never led it). You will never regret it...the Revelation will come alive but an added benefit is that the Old Testament prophetic books (like Isaiah and Zechariah) will be illuminated by the Holy Spirit in a way you have never before experienced as so much of what happens in Revelation deals with God's Plan for the Ages at it relates specifically to the nation of Israel.

Woodcuts by Gustave Dore

Click for works by Gustave Dore (Referred to as an "Artist of the People" by Vincent van Gogh. 212 of his beautiful engraved illustrations depicting many Old and New Testament. Not copyrighted. Make impressive black and white overhead transparencies for teaching.

Alternative resource: Bible Illustrations, by G. Dore - Main Page

Click for collection of hundreds of Black and White pictures associated with a number of passages in both the Old and New Testaments.

Another source I have found helpful searching for images is the Google Image Search. E.g., type "Abraham Genesis" (Note - do not include quotation marks) which retrieves over 100 images. As of 4/18/05 the number of image hits matching Abraham Genesis has increased to 708 (and this is using the preference Moderate Safe Search is on.). The images retrieved include classics by Rembrandt, Michelangelo, etc.

Remember - do not include quotation marks - any phrase in quotation marks produces a search for that exact phrase whereas words without quotation marks will search for a combination that includes all the words on one page. E.g., if you type "Galilee map" in Google and keep the quotation marks, you will retrieve 103 hits on Google Image search. Now type the same two word but this time remove the quotation marks and you retrieve 36,800 hits! (Both with Moderate SafeSearch on - searching without a filter is not recommended!)

In addition to the Google "Image" search engine you can also occasionally find other maps and pictures by using the regular Google search. For example, type in "Ephesus" into Google and retrieve over 241,000 hits (as of 7/22/03), this number increasing to 686,000 as of 4/18/05 and 3,060,000 (9/17/07)! The number one hit remains Ephesus, Turkey: Panoramic pictures of Ephesus - click it for a well done Virtual Tour of Ephesus which is the best preserved archeological site of the 7 churches of the Revelation. But be a Berean (Acts 17:11-note)

examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; abstain from every form of evil (1Th 5:21, 22-notes) (Notice that all three verbs are not suggestions but commands calling for this to be our habitual attitude and action = present imperative)
