I found this over at the ESV blog and thought it was really cool.

“The folks at OpenBible.info have geocoded the Bible. In other words, they went through the Bible and found the latitude and longitude of nearly all the places mentioned.

They’ve produced satellite maps and KMLs (for Google Earth) for every book in the Bible that mentions a place, and KMLs for every chapter.”

So basically, you can go thru any chapter of the bible and this website will show you the location of any places that are mentioned or where that chapter is taking place geographically.

A great book on this, if you are interested, is the “New Bible Atlas”.
