We at Jerusalem Perspective would like our readers to be aware of an excellent resource for studying biblical geography: the Satellite Bible Atlas video commentary series on YouTube. The videos explore the physical settings of biblical narratives, helping viewers to understand how the lay of the land shaped and informed biblical events. The satellite images and aerial photographs featured in the videos afford a bird’s-eye view of Bible lands with a precision and accuracy no ordinary map can provide.
Watch the first video in the series here:
The video commentary is a companion to the Satellite Bible Atlas by William Schlegel, Associate Professor of Bible at The Master’s College, Israel Bible Extension (IBEX). But even for those who do not own the Satellite Bible Atlas, the videos offer an excellent introduction to the physical settings of the Bible.
