==================================================

When you look at places plotted on a country map, you are just getting an idea of it's relative position with in that country.
The dot placed on the map to represent a city may well hundreds of miles off if the dot is 1/16th off.
The thickness of a border line drawn by a narrow pen may be 50 miles wide by scale.
Maps of entire countries are created ONLY to show the relative position of that place with in the nation.
The problem with map makers is they try to get endless amount of information in a confined area. They start with a big version and shrink it down to a copy so a bug with a magnifying glass can not read the 4 point fonts that are smudged.

For the purpose of bible maps I suggest a directory of every place or landmark in the bible and a map of the present day country that it is in.
If you were looking for a place called Amarna, you would go down the directory (alphabetical like a phone book) Amarna - Egypt - 27 45 41 N. 30 54 26 E


This would tell you to look at the Egypt map at these grids.
Instead of hundreds of maps about 20 maps would allow people to find the relative position of any place in the bible.
This sample map does the same thing as any map, but your directory allows you to find hundreds... thousands of places in Egypt and you can actually read the print.
You can print the maps out and plot multiple locations for show and tell.

I will create two versions of each country map. One with the grid lines and another to show where that country's relative position is with in the lands of the bible.
When I looked through hundreds of ancient pictures of Egyptians, I always thought all Egyptians (before mixing with Europeans) were brown or black... But...
To the left is an ancient picture of king Tut and his girl friend and their faces appear to be pink. Those Egyptians also had very big ears.
Instead of using Hollywood (Anglo Saxon Europeans), I will use actual native people of the middle east to represent the bible characters.

From left to right Manasseh, Ephraim and Asenath. (actual pictures of natives of Egypt)

Manasseh and Ephraim are the sons of Joseph who was the descendant of Syrians and ancient Iraqis (Chaldeans) Their mother was Asenath, the Egyptian daughter of the priest of On. (On -16 miles N. of Cairo)


Joshua, Caleb, Gilead, the Gileadites and Elijah the Tishbite are descendants of these Egyptian, Syrian, ancient Iraqi boys.
As young boys they may have played in the palace of Pharaoh and sat on his knee.
There grandpa was the Egyptian priest of On. These little Egyptian sons would have played with other Egyptian kids and grown up with the Egyptian culture. No they did not marry Israelite girls, they married Syrians.
The Israelites which left Egypt 430 years later were of the stock of Egyptians and all the rest of the captive Arabs that the Israelites lived among.
Israelites were only part of the Egyptian captives. When the Israelites left a multitude of "strangers" left with them... the Israelites also married them in their 40 year travel from Egypt to Israel.

If you find any other cities or land marks in Egypt not here, send a post to bible_maps@juno.com and give the verse it is found. The latitude n longitude are given here so you can look the approximate location with the map above.
