I love maps.

Have I ever told you how much I love maps? Well, I do. I really love maps. I can sit down and spend time reading a map just like it’s a bestselling novel. Maps are so practical. They get you places. Or they can make you feel like you’ve been to a place that you’ve never visited.

Maps also greatly enrich your study of the Bible. Getting the geographical picture of what you’re studying is so important to understanding many passages. I told you in this post about a great website with a plethora of free online study tools. One of those tools is the Atlas feature. I encourage you to check it out.

When reading a passage of Scripture, every time you come to a geographical location double underline it with a green pen (find some great ones here) and then find it on a map. You will be amazed at how much maps will enhance your study of the Word.

Bible Study tools website

I’m not going to say a lot about this website because there is frankly so much to say. You’re just going to have to check it out for yourself. You won’t believe how much information and how many tools are available at Biblos.com. Atlases, Bibles, concordances, dictionaries, encyclopedias, thesauruses, commentaries, devotions. . . and the list goes on. It really is a treasure trove of Bible study tools.

One of my favorite resources I’ve check out so far is the Visuals button on the home page. It is an online Biblical image library. You can type a word, phrase, or Bible verse into the search box and pages and pages of images and information come up.

It will take some time to get through this website – if it’s even possible to get through it all. What a great resource. Check it out.
