Return to The Biblical Geography Workshop

This activity has a couple of options. First, you may work with a Bible which has maps (often located in the back) or use the Alphabetical Scriptural Maps (instructions) and the scripture texts linked below (download Google Earth free). Second, you may create your map by hand in which case print out the PDF version below, or on your computer in which case use the Pp version.
