I wrote an article “Reading the Scriptures Geographically: Some Tools and Insights” that provides many examples and ideas.
Below is a summary of ideas and resources to support reading the scriptures geographically (use all of these resources with discretion since most of them have not yet been peer reviewed).
- The Google Earth Bible project created by Dr. Steve Liddle and me is at http://scriptures.byu.edu/mapscrip. This tool is very much in beta mode and appears to only function using a Firefox browser.
- Google Earth
- Bibleplaces.com has maps and pictures of many Bible locations
- VirtualWorldProject.org. “The Virtual World Project presents interactive virtual tours of archaeological sites in Israel and Jordan. The project is designed to aid in the teaching and study of antiquity.”
- The Digital Archaeological Atlas of the Holy Land
- For a full list of .kmz files (i.e., Google Earth files) of Bible sites, visit the OpenBible website or click here.
- .kmz files of Bible bodies of water.
- Lots of other mapping resources.
