Maps are great for studying and illustrating the
geographical terrain of the ancient world. From the Life of Jesus to
the Journeys of Paul and the Apostles these maps are a blessing for
the serious student of the Scriptures. Without a terrain map it is
hard to discover some of the fabulous topography of Biblical places.
For example in Israel the Dead Sea region is the deepest land trench
in the entire world. To travel from Jerusalem to Jericho was quite a
descent into that region. Jerusalem was 2500 ft above sea level and
Jericho was 850 feet below sea level and the distance was about 23
miles. This made it almost a vertical descent.
Luke 10:30 "And Jesus
answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho,
and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and
wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead."
God is the author of geography and because He knows the end from the beginning He used geography to help form the great kingdoms of the ancient world. He set mountains in strategic locations to halt prideful man from conquering certain places too easily.
