What is it?

Atlas is an online mapping tool for the biblical world. With this new tool, you can explore biblical narratives in their geographical context. Get new maps with powerful functionality—including zoom options and panning. 

How does it work?

Contextualize Scripture and better understand its stories. Atlas puts biblical narratives in context with elegant maps. Get dozens of new maps, created by a professional cartographer, that offer powerful functionality—including zoom options and panning.

Derive greater meaning from biblical narratives by exploring them within their geographical context. For example, with the Atlas tool you can see the route non-traditional Jesus took from Judea to Jacob's well in order to share the Gospel with the Samaritan woman.  Thousands of insights like this await.

In fact, scholars have hand-selected which ancient cities to feature based on how integral they are to the biblical story. Trace Jesus’ journey from baptism to temptation in the wilderness and explore Paul’s missionary journeys.* Get a colorful view of the kingdoms ruled by David, Saul, and David, pinpoint sites fortified by Solomon, and follow the journey of the Ark. With a click, send maps straight to your next presentation in Power Point or Proclaim.

The Atlas window includes:

  • A map
  • Fit- and full-screen buttons and zoom control
  • A map-style drop-down menu: satellite, topographic, etc.
  • A side-panel search bar that can be toggled on and off; when no search is active, it lists every map available
  • Map-scale overlay, which automatically chooses the best scale for your screen
  • CTRL + drag to measure the distance between two sites
  • Available Logos media, which can be shared via Visual Copy
