Ancient Bethany - Kids Bible Maps This map shows the location of Bethany in the land of Israel. The town of Bethany was located about two miles east of Jerusalem on the road toward the city of Jericho. Bethany is where the man named Lazarus lived, and he was friends with Jesus. When Lazarus was sick his sisters sent for Jesus to come and heal him, but Jesus had a different plan! After several more days, Jesus and his disciples learned that Lazarus had died. At that time they packed up their things and traveled to Bethany. After Lazarus had been dead for four days, Jesus called to him from outside of the tomb saying, "Lazarus, come forth!" And Lazarus was alive again! Simon the leper also lived in Bethany, and it was at Simon`s house that a woman came and poured expensive perfume on Jesus` head.

Bethlehem - Kids Bible Maps This map shows the city of Bethlehem where Jesus was born in a manger. The reason it is important that Jesus was born in Bethlehem is because in Micah 5:2 it was prophesied that the Messiah would be born in Bethlehem. It`s also important to know that Bethlehem was also the birthplace of King David. And it was prophesied that the Messiah would come from David`s family. Jesus fulfilled both prophesies!

Cana - Kids Bible Maps This map shows the city of Cana where Jesus performed his first miracle: turning water into wine. Jesus, his mother Mary, and the disciples were all invited to a wedding in the town of Cana. Cana is a few miles north of the town of Nazareth in the region of Galilee. While celebrating, the hosting family ran out of wine so Jesus told their servants to fill six very large stone pots all the way up with water. Then Jesus told them to take some of it out to the host of the party; when they did the man drank the water, but it wasn`t water anymore it was turned into wine! Isn`t it great that the very first miracle of Jesus recorded in the Bible was for a celebration of marriage? Marriage is beautiful and worthy of celebrating! Now you know where the town of Cana is, where Jesus turned water into wine.

Sidon - Kids Bible Maps This map shows the cities known as Tyre and Sidon in the land of Phoenicia near ancient Israel. The Bible says that when Jesus travelled to the region of Tyre and Sidon, a Canaanite woman came to him and begged him to save her daughter from a demon. The woman pleaded and pleaded with Jesus until Jesus turned to her and said, "Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted." And her daughter was healed at that very moment. Jesus also referred to Tyre and Sidon when he was addressing the cities of Israel: Chorazin, Bethsaida, and Capernaum. Jesus performed many miracles in these cities but they still did not believe he was the Son of God. Jesus said if he had done the same miracles in Tyre and Sidon they would have repented of their sins and believed in him! That statement would have really gotten their attention, because they believed that the Messiah would only be for the Jewish people not the Phoenicians or any other people. Thankfully for you and me, Jesus came and died for everyone!

The Journey Of Abraham - Kids Bible Maps This is the story of Abraham`s Journey from his home in Ur all the way to the distant land of Egypt.

It all began one day when his father decided for them to leave their home in Ur and travel to Canaan. On their way, they stopped in the beautiful city of Haran where there are lots of big mountains and good farmland next to the Euphrates River. After seeing how beautiful Haran was, they decided to stay and make it their new home. When Abram was 75 years old, God spoke to him telling him to leave everything behind except his wife Sarai, and his nephew Lot, and travel to wherever God leads him. Abram obeyed and they went on their way to Canaan. When they arrived, God appeared to Abram and told him that this land would belong to his family because of his obedience! Soon after arriving in Canaan, there was a severe famine; which means there was no food to eat. The famine forced Abram and Sarai to travel to Egypt where the pyramids and mummies are because they had plenty of food!
