Scripture tells the stories of real people living in real places. Abraham left his father’s home in Ur, sojourned in Egypt, and was buried in the cave of Machpeleh. David was anointed by Samuel in Bethlehem, ruled for seven years from Hebron, and spent the rest of his reign in Jerusalem. Jesus performed a miracle at Cana, travelled through Samaria, and appeared on the road to Emmaus after his resurrection.
These aren’t fictitious places made up for a story. They’re real locations you can find on a map. That’s why a good biblical atlas is an essential tool for understanding the geographical and cultural context of the biblical world.
It’s easy to gloss over this important step in your Bible study. But those colorful pages in the back of your Bible and that big book you have sitting on your shelf? They’re more important than people give them credit for.
Still, those static pages won’t let you zoom in to see more detail, search by biblical passage, or jump straight from a geographical location in Scripture to a relevant atlas entry.
But you can do just that with the Logos Atlas tool.
If you’ve ever felt like using an Atlas was an extra step that you just don’t have time for, I’ll show you why consulting the Logos Atlas is intuitive, quick, and an insightful addition to your Bible study.
