Bible Map 4+
Engage the World of the Bible
Designed for iPad
"The most interactive, exhaustive, easy to use, and thorough Bible Map app in the app store."
The Bible comes to life as you see the land of the Bible and realize the artifacts we have today supporting the story of the Bible.
This update includes an exciting new archeological discovery. In January of 2021 it was announced that archeologists had found purple fabric from the time of David and Solomon. Purple fabric is mentioned as a premiere luxury of the Old Testament time period. Purple dyed fabric is mentioned more than 50 times in Scripture. Having vivid purple fabric discovered shows the quality of such fabric from even fading over 3,000 years ago. This addition is our 164th artifact in the app. Enjoy experiencing the world of the Bible!
Ratings and Reviews
Good; minor complaints
I downloaded this about 4 months ago, when I began a daily geographical study of God’s Word. It’s been a fascinating study, and this app has helped considerably. It’s not always 100% accurate, though, consider for example the location of Mount Sinai. As always, one must use common, logical sense and careful read what the Bible says if they are to learn the truth. You can’t always count on apps to do everything for you. But I really like how the biblical locations are superimposed over modern maps. Like others have commented, an outline of the ancient city/country would be superior to a simple pin, though I realize not all ancient geographic borders are currently known.
It Will Change Your Life and Perspective
I've had this App for bout 2 years now and it has changed the way I view everything narrative in the Bible..it gives you so much better understanding of context and logistics making the Bible real and come alive. For Instance, did you know that Abraham brought Isaac to what is known as today at the very site of the dome of the Rock and was also where the Temples were located..it just makes you connect the past present and future..and a big thumbs up to the developers who updated it to have a parallel scripture option to click the location right on the text...saves you the time of looking everything up (can't figure out how to manually search for a location any more) guess it would be nice to have both options on the iPad). I can still search manually on my iPhone 4s but hey no complaints really really love this App!!!!
Great for getting an idea of the general (sometimes specific) locations mentioned in the Bible, thank you!
A suggestion: some of the references do not make sense - such as crucifixion being linked to a Philistine cemetery. It would be nice to have a ‘report’ or ‘flag’ button so that users can identify possible inaccuracies. I realize that there could be false positives so perhaps require a brief description before submitting?
Still, a great app, thank you for the Bible context enhancement!
