This profusely illustrated atlas, intended for young readers, tells the full story of the Bible from Genesis to Acts. The 96 maps that illustrate such events as the wanderings of the Patriarchs and the journeys of St. Paul are enhanced by a text written by the renowned British biblical scholar, F. F. Bruce. The work is not only a useful reference for finding places mentioned in the Bible, but also a marvelously well-written summary of the key events of biblical history.

From the Second Millennium B.C. to the First Century A.D., this compact and lavishly illustrated Bible Atlas, with its many maps, illuminates the biblical period and provides the reader with a visual background to the beauty of the Holy Scriptures. Now revised, it will serve another generation in gaining a better image of the Holy Writ.

Renowned and much admired scholar F. F. Bruce had spent a lifetime studying and teaching the Bible. Having published many scholarly works, he graciously agreed to contribute the historical background to accompany this basic set of maps. Augmented by plans, illustrations and photographs, Carta’s Illustrated Bible Atlas has been serving teachers and pupils for decades.

In addition to the pages covering all the biblical periods in chronological order, we have now prefaced it with a map of Bible Lands today and a physical map of the same area. The chronological chart is another important tool to view the various relationships between the kingdoms and empires of each period. Rounding off the picture are a map of modern Israel, a satellite view of the Holy Land and a map of the Old City of Jerusalem showing the major excavations where remains from Bible times have been unearthed.

This detailed handbook of the Biblical World presents the reader with a review of the ancient world, from the Fourth Millennium BCE up through the Bar Kochba Revolt of 132-135 CE.

It is a detailed backdrop to the Holy Scriptures and reviews all the major Empires and salient events which bear so heavily upon an understanding of the Biblical world. This Handbook—a masterpiece of scholarship—is a concise version of the more extensive Sacred Bridge, but the reader should always keep in mind that events in the north, as in Egypt, often had a decisive effect on biblical history.

Jerusalem in the Time of Nehemiah, 2nd ed.

  • Author: Leen & Kathleen Ritmeyer
  • Edition: 2nd Edition
  • Publisher: Carta Jerusalem
  • Publication Date: 2014
  • Pages: 72

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Jerusalem after the Babylonian captivity was all but destroyed. It was in the time of Nehemiah, governor of the province of Judah or Yehud, that the grand reconstruction of the city took place. Jerusalem in the Time of Nehemiah takes us on an archaeological tour of Nehemiah’s Jerusalem illuminating all the sites, gates and walls of the city. It is richly illustrated with models of reconstructions, photographs, drawings and illustrative maps.

Nehemiah was the great reformer who rallied the people to repair the walls of Jerusalem that were broken down in the Babylonian destruction of 586 b.c. In this guide, we are first immersed in the historical background to the time of Nehemiah. Then, in an imaginative reconstruction, one of the builders of the wall (a Tekoite) describes for us some of the moving events of those stirring times. The primary focus of the book, however, is a detailed archaeological tour of Nehemiah’s Jerusalem. Profusely illustrated with photographs of a recently constructed model, this second, revised edition also contains rare photographs of archaeological remains extant from the period.

Leen Ritmeyer, originally from Holland, is an archaeological architect, lecturer and teacher. He has been involved in all of Jerusalem’s major excavations, producing site plans and reconstruction drawings for all of them. In Jerusalem, he directed prestigious restoration projects such as the Byzantine Cardo and the Herodian Villas and taught Biblical Archaeology at the Universities of Leeds and Cardiff in the U.K. In 2006, his major work, The Quest: Revealing the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, was published after thirty years of intensive research.

Kathleen Ritmeyer holds a BA degree in Archaeology from University College Dublin and a postgraduate certificate in education. Since 1983, she has been a partner with Leen in their firm, Ritmeyer Archaeological Design (www.ritmeyer.com), producing educational materials on the subject of biblical archaeology.

Open up the world of Jerusalem in the first century with Jerusalem in the Year 30 A.D. The combination of artistic restorations and onsite photographs transport you back almost 2,000 years. See the remains from the period preserved in and around the present-day walls of Jerusalem. Then walk the streets of the city in the time of Jesus with the minutely detailed reconstruction drawings.

Locations depicted include the Pool of Siloam, site of Jesus’ healing of the blind man; the Bethesda Pools, where the man paralyzed for 38 years was healed; and the Palatial Mansion where it is likely Jesus was interrogated by the priests and elders while Peter waited in the courtyard outside. Alternative routes for the Via Dolorosa and the two sites identified as Golgotha are also shown.

All the salient sites in the first century A.D. are beautifully illustrated with maps, illustrations, reconstructions and photographs by renowned artists and scholars—Leen & Kathleen Ritmeyer.

The Carta Bible Atlas prides itself on detailed graphic presentation and brief texts of the historical events spanning the biblical period and beyond. Founded on Holy Scripture and aided by recent scholarly research, newly discovered documentary evidence and archaeological finds the authors bring fresh understanding to biblical history and geography.

This fifth revised and updated edition of The Carta Bible Atlas has been enriched by the addition of 40 new maps. Anson F. Rainey added maps and discussion on contemporary subjects surrounding the biblical narrative and R. Steven Notley revised and expanded the New Testament section. Prof. Notley further enhanced this volume by extending its historical reach to include the map of Palestine at the end of the third century as recorded by Eusebius, Bishop of Caesarea

One of the most valuable tools for Bible study much more than a collection of maps. It is a graphic portrayal of and a reliable commentary on the history and geography of Israel.

The Onomasticon by Eusebius of Caesarea: Palestine in the Fourth Century A.D.

For archaeologists specializing in the Levant, the Onomasticon of Eusebius Pamphili, Bishop of Caesarea in Palestine (c. A.D. 260–339), has long been considered to be one of the most useful works extant from antiquity. Eusebius endeavored to list every place mentioned in the Bible and locate each one in the lands he knew. These sites have become the goal of Christian pilgrims ever since.

Carta has now made Eusebius’ valuable material available for the first time to laymen and students in English, presented in parallel with Jerome’s Latin rendering.

This important geographical witness will be available to more scholars and Bible students. The endeavor to “put the Bible on the map” will be advanced and made possible for a wider range of enthusiasts. Both the Greek and Latin texts will be at hand for the English reader and scholar in this new translation of the Onomasticon.

Eusebius of Caesarea (c. AD 263–339) also called Eusebius Pamphili, was a Roman historian, exegete and Christian polemicist. He became the Bishop of Caesarea in Palestine about the year 314. Together with Pamphilus, he was a scholar of the Biblical canon. He wrote Demonstrations of the Gospel, Preparations for the Gospel, and On Discrepancies between the Gospels, studies of the Biblical text.

A resource was needed to bring together all that is now known about the development of the manmade plateau that is the focus of the world’s interest—the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Ritmeyer’s experience as architect of the Temple Mount Excavations, coupled with his exploration of parts of the Mount and his doctoral research make him singularly qualified for the task.

Comprehensive in scope, the book begins with the Temple Mount at its zenith, under King Herod the Great. Weaving together archaeological data with historical sources Ritmeyer produces an authoritative and exhaustive reconstruction in word and picture. With the features of the Herodian Temple Mount clearly understood, the reader is led to the quest for the earlier, square Temple Mount, described by Josephus and the Mishnah. Theories are fairly examined and evaluated as the search progresses. Clues discovered by the author provide compelling evidence that all previous proposals be reexamined. This rich accumulation of archaeological and literary evidence suggests a solution for Jerusalem’s enduring enigma—i.e., the actual location of the Temple from the time of Solomon onward. One amazing discovery was the original emplacement of the Ark of the Covenant on the rocky floor of what can be identified as the Holy of Holies. This work distills three millennia of history and thirty years of intensive research into the definitive book on the Temple Mount.

The Raging Torrent presents a comprehensive collection of the royal inscriptions and varied chronographic texts from Assyria and Babylonia that treat the Land of Israel and the People of Israel. Covering a period of just over three hundred years during the first half of the 1st millennium bce, these texts tell the story of the military encounters between the Mesopotamian empires and the kingdoms of Israel and Judah, which led in most cases to their submission and ultimate downfall. Many of the texts relate to events described in the Hebrew Bible, while others provide information about affairs that were unknown until their rediscovery in modern times. All the texts have been newly translated from the original cuneiform documents and are accompanied by a consecutive commentary and select bibliography.

Illustrative material—maps and photographs of relevant artifacts— provide additional accessibility to the sources of this intriguing period in the history of the ancient Near East.

Mordechai Cogan, Ph.D., is professor emeritus of Biblical History at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He has written widely on the political and cultural connections between ancient Israel and the empires of the ancient Near East.

Documenting over 3,000 years of East Mediterranean history, this detailed volume is an up-to-date depiction of Biblical history and geography by way of the ancient sources with original texts and translations from native languages incorporated into the narrative of the Atlas.

This is the first Atlas to adopt the modern approach to the study of the Levant as a geographical/historical entity. Emphasis throughout the current work is on the ancient written sources—every ancient passage is interpreted firsthand, from its native language. Archaeological evidence has been taken into account whenever it is relevant.

The logical geographical unit the “Levant” in spite of its lack of homogeneity in some physical and ecological respects is a land bridge that saw the influx of many races and ethnic groups. The chronological scope of this volume includes peoples of the third millennium BCE down to the Greeks, the Itureans and the Nabateans in the Hellenistic and Roman periods.

New Testament geography, especially that of the Gospels, is interpreted in light of new understanding resulting from discoveries such as the Dead Sea Scrolls. Refreshing insights serve to define geographical terms used in the New Testament.

Detailed references to the most recent scholarly works on ancient texts consulted and cited for each period of ancient history.

Anson Rainey is the foremost historical geographer of the Holy Land. This tome reflects years of research, teaching, and thought on a subject which is essential to ar chaeological and biblical studies. It should be on the bookshelf of every serious teacher and student of the Bible and the ancient Near East.
