Bible Geography Teaching/Learning Videos

Bill Schlegel has posted 7 videos (my rough count) on YouTube where he introduces  viewers to the regions of the Land of the Bible.  The videos are linked to his Satellite Bible Atlas.

When viewing the video I suggest that you click to view the
Full Screen version.

For example video “06” treats the Jezreel Valley and Lower Galilee.  For those of us who have studied under Professor Anson Rainey and Jim Monson at the Jerusalem University College – as Bill did – the content of the video is very familiar.

For those who are not familiar with the Land of the Bible and for those who have visited the lands the videos will be very useful.  His explanations are very clear and he makes great use of useful graphics, photos, and even short interviews with his students (which I found very entertaining)!

Congratulations Bill on providing a  great on-line teaching/learning tool!

BTW – the Satellite Bible Atlas is available from the Associates for Biblical Research.  His atlas is very strong on the historical events of the biblical period and has fine maps.  If you wish for more descriptive information on the regions of Israel, Jordan, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, and Mesopotamia—along with significant commentary on historical events—I invite you to consult my Zondervan Atlas of the Bible as well.
