Bible Maps, Images and Charts

Genesis 15:18 "In that day JEHOVAH made a COVENANT with Abram saying "To your descendants I have given this land from the river of Egypt as far as the great river, the river Euphrates 17:8 and I will give to you & to your descendants after you the land of your sojournings all the land of Canaan for an EVERLASTING possession & will be their God."

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.

Well Done Maps from Swindoll Study Bible


Bible Mapper is a fully interactive, highly accurate Bible mapping system that helps you quickly and easily create customized maps of the Holy Lands or study a particular period and aspect of Bible history. Interesting tool! Many of the maps in the next site are made using "Biblemapper" See Bible Mapper Gallery

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 Maps, Charts, Timelines

Bible "Timelines" (Tables) from The Dated Events of the Old Testament

Maps on E-sword

Click E-sword is one of the best free Bible study software 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...

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!)

Miscellaneous Maps
and Images

Google Search - 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-noteexamine 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)


See samples of some of 6000 pictures available (for purchase). Note that at the bottom of the page of each of the links to places in the table below there are multiple additional links related to that place (potentially very helpful). If you use pictures in preaching or teaching, consider this set. Power Point files included.
