Our team has researched thousands of biblical places, cataloguing relevant scripture references, dictionary articles, original language lemmas, and more. When you search for a biblical place in the Factbook, Logos scours this database, gathering a short description, biblical events that occurred there, every time it is mentioned in the Bible, links to resources, and more. We’ve hand tagged thousands of maps, illustrations, and photographs with place names so you can understand how the location fits into biblical geography and history. Biblical places are associated with multiple names, so when you search for “Bethlehem” you’ll find passages where it is referred to as “City of David,” “Ephrathah,” “Lehem,” and more. Each biblical place is associated with other relevant Factbook pages—search for “Jerusalem” and find entries on “Jebusites,” “People in Jerusalem,” “Kingdom of Judah,” and more. We’ve catalogued thousands of entries so you have access to the information you need in an instant.
