Map of Ancient Judea


Ancient Judea - Map of New Testament Israel JU-DAE`A, JU-DE`A (land of Judah),
In a general sense the whole of Israel, but more particularly that southern portion which constituted the kingdom of Judah, viz., the allotments of Judah, Benjamin, and parts of Simeon and Dan. Word first used in Dan. 5:13. Became general after the captivity, Ezra 5:8 ; Neh. 11:3 ; Matt, 19:1 ; Mark 10:1. Under Rome it was governed by a procurator.

Ancient Judea - Kids Bible maps This map shows the region of Judea in the land of ancient Israel. The region of Judea was 55 miles long, from Bethlehem where Jesus was born, down to the city of Beersheba. Almost half of Judea was desert! It was a very dry and barren place in the west, but there were hills and the Jordan river in the east.

Judea in Easton's Bible Dictionary After the Captivity this name was applied to the whole of the country west of the Jordan (Hag. 1:1, 14; 2:2). But under the Romans, in the time of Christ, it denoted the southernmost of the three divisions of Israel (Matt. 2:1, 5; 3:1; 4:25), although it was also sometimes used for Israel generally (Acts 28:21). The province of Judea, as distinguished from Galilee and Samaria, included the territories of the tribes of Judah, Benjamin, Dan, Simeon, and part of Ephraim. Under the Romans it was a part of the province of Syria, and was governed by a procurator.

Judea in Smiths Bible Dictionary (from Judah), a territorial division which succeeded to the overthrow of the ancient landmarks of the tribes of Israel and Judah in their respective captivities. The word first occurs Da 5:13 Authorized Version "Jewry," and the first mention of the "province of Judea" is in the book of Ezra, Ezr 5:8 It is alluded to in Ne 11:3 (Authorized Version "Judah"). In the apocryphal books the word "province" is dropped, and throughout them and the New Testament the expressions are "the land of Judea," "Judea." In a wide and more improper sense, the term Judea was sometimes extended to the whole country of the Canaanites, its ancient inhabitants; and even in the Gospels we read of the coasts of Judea "beyond Jordan." Mt 19:1; Mr 10:1 Judea was, in strict language, the name of the third district, west of the Jordan and south of Samaria. It was made a portion of the Roman province of Syria upon the deposition of Archelaus, the ethnarch of Judea, in A.D. 6, and was governed by a procurator, who was subject to the governor of Syria.

Judea in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE joo-de'-a: In Ezr 5:8 for "Judah"; thus the Revised Version (British and American). In the New Testament the form is JUDAEA (which see).

Judea Scripture - Ezra 5:8 Be it known unto the king, that we went into the province of Judea, to the house of the great God, which is builded with great stones, and timber is laid in the walls, and this work goeth fast on, and prospereth in their hands.
