Google Earth has long been a popular tool for religious study, as it helps provide a geographical context to the area being studied. Frank first showed off some Bible Geocoding tools more than six years ago, and since then we’ve shown you a few others such as a visualization of the parting of the Red Sea.
Mark Hoffman who writes the BibleAndStudies blog has posted a very comprehensive entry with various Biblical resources in Google Earth. He’s compiled a list of great files, such as the Bible Places file with info from ISBE and Easton Bible Dictionaries, which Mark has edited to make more useful. Here is a screenshot that shows just a fraction of what’s included in the file.
All in all, it’s an impressive and useful collection of Bible-related files for Google Earth. Go check it out on Mark’s site and leave a comment below if you know of other related collections.
