Map of the Ministry of Jesus (Bible History Online)
Isa 52:7 -How lovely are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace; who brings good news of great joy, who publishes salvation; who proclaims to Zion, “Thy God reigns!” THE LAND THAT HAD BEEN PROMISED Jesus returned to his homeland, the Land of Israel, which had been promised to the first Hebrew, Abraham, thousands of years before. A covenant was made between the Lord and Abraham, and the Lord promised that one day his “seed” (descendant) would be a benefit to all nations. The fact that Israel was referred to as “The Promised Land” was due to this very reason.
It is astonishing how much the Lord enjoyed the country of Israel, given that it was not only beautiful throughout, but also had markers that proved God’s faithfulness in keeping His promises to His people.
Because it is true that a decent Bible atlas is a necessary tool for every serious student of the Bible, the map application that has been developed to accompany it was developed.
You may use the Map to track the path that Jesus took throughout his mission.

Map and History of Israel at the time of Jesus Christ
Israel was under Roman authority at the time of Jesus’ birth. The Roman conquest of Israel (63 BC.) was the culmination of a lengthy series of invasions that began with the Assyrians and Babylonians, continued with the Persians and the Greeks, culminating with Alexanderthe Great, and ended with the Romans. As early as the time of Jesus’ birth, the Romans had set up a government in Israel consisting of Roman overseers and local leaders who held and exercised authority in the name of the Roman Empire.
- He is renowned for his monumental construction efforts throughout Judea, which include the enlargement of the SecondTemple in Jerusalem, which is known as Herod’s Temple.
- One of Herod’s sons, Archelaus, was so violent in his exercise of authority in Jerusalem that Rome removed him from power and replaced him with one of its own governors, Pontius Pilate, who served as governor from 26 to 36 AD.
- HerodAntipas, another of his sons, was responsible for the killing of John theBaptist, who was also a member of the royal family.
- Jerusalem served as both the Jewish world’s capital and its geographic center.
Jesus Trail – Wikipedia
|Walking the Jesus Trail soon after Nazareth, on the stone to the left a Jesus Trail mark|
|Length||65 km (40 mi)|
|Trail difficulty||Moderate to strenuous|
|Sights||Basic Route:Nazareth,Sepphoris,Cana,Hattin,Arbel,Sea of Galilee,Capernaum,Tabgha,Mount of Beatitudes; Alternate return route:Tiberias,Jordan River,Mount Tabor, andMount Precipice.|
This hiking and pilgrimage route in Israel’s Galilee area parallels the path that Jesus may have taken throughout his life and ministry. It is 65 kilometers (40 miles) long and connects numerous places from Jesus’ life and ministry, including the Mount of Beatitudes. After starting in Nazareth and passing via Sepphoris, Cana (Kafr Kann), theHorns of Hattin, the Mount Arbel Cliffs, theSea of Galilee, Capernaum, Tabgha, and the Mount of Beatitudes, the walk finally ends at the Mount of Beatitudes.
The path was built in 2007 by two hiking enthusiasts: Maoz Inon, a Jewish Israeli entrepreneur who has established hostels and guesthouses across Israel, and David Landis, a Christian American hiking specialist who has traveled extensively over the world to hike. The route was officially marked in 2008, after years of planning and preparation. A non-profit organization, it is maintained and promoted mostly via the efforts of volunteers at the present time. The path is open to the public and free to use for anybody who want to trek or camp along its length.
When sections of the Jesus Trail intersect with other trails (such as the Israel National Trail), an extra orange circle is placed to the trail sign that before the intersection.
An international, national, and local coalition of groups, including JNF-KKL (The Jewish National Fund), the Fauzi Azar Inn in Nazareth, village schools, and foreign volunteers, have worked together to keep the trail in good condition and sanitary.
The biblical reference for the Jesus Trail is based on this verse, which appears at the beginning of Jesus’ public ministry.
The following passage from the Gospel of Matthew states: “Leaving Nazareth, he traveled and resided at Capernaum, which was near the lake.” (See Matthew 4:13 for more information.) According to the Gospels, Capernaum was chosen as the location for Jesus’ ministry headquarters: “And getting into a boat, he crossed across and arrived to his native city.” Also in Matthew 9:1, “And when he came to Capernaum after a few days, it was reported that he was at home,” which means “at home.” (See Mark 2:16).
Maoz Inon and David Landis explain the Jesus Trail philosophy on the official Jesus Trail Homepage: “We hope that travelers of diverse religious and ethnic backgrounds will gain a new understanding of the life of Jesus through the people and land that shaped his historical context along the Jesus Trail.” Today, interactions on the route continue to provide chances to extend and receive hospitality from a variety of different groups of individuals.
Modern travelers might learn to live simply and travel light by following the spirit of Jesus’ words from Mark 6:8-9: “Let us live simply and travel light.” “Take nothing with you but a staff for the journey—no bread, no bag, and no money in your belts.” Wear sandals, but avoid wearing a second garment.” According to the history of pilgrimage hiking pathways across the world, such as the Camino de Santiago de Compostela (the Way of St.
James) in northern Spain and the Saint Paul Trail in Turkey, the Jesus Trail was built in the same manner.
With about 200,000 hikers every year on theCamino de Santiago in the first decade of the twenty-first century, the medieval tradition of religious pilgrimage has witnessed a rebirth in recent years and is expected to continue.
The trail is designed for Christians who are looking for a pilgrimage route that not only provides a more personal experience of the Galilee and sites associated with Jesus’ life, but also incorporates historical sites from various eras, sites sacred to other religions, natural sites, breathtaking panoramas, and hiking for those who are looking for a physically demanding route. Christians account for two-thirds of all inbound tourism to Israel. The Gospel Trail is a similar hiking trail that began in November 2011 to attract Christian tourists.
Sections of the trail
The Sea of Galilee and the Mount of Beatitudes The landscape and distances involved naturally lend themselves to the Jesus Trail being walked as a series of day walks over the course of four days, with each day’s journey ranging between 13 and 19 kilometers (8 to 12 kilometers) in length.

Details of the four sections
- 1st day – Path from Nazareth to Cana through the Sepphoris – The trail begins at the Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth’s city center, travels through the Old City of Nazareth, and then ascends steep stairways to a ridge with a panoramic view of the city. From there, the route heads out into agricultural fields in the direction of the ancient city of Tsippori, which has been thoroughly excavated (Sepphoris). Leaving Cana, the trail travels almost entirely through forests and natural and cultivated fields until it reaches the outskirts of a modern Jewish agricultural commune (Hebrew:kibbutz) called Lavi, which is located near the hill of the Horns of Hattin
- Day 3: Kibbutz Lavi to Kafr Kanna – After leaving Kafr Kanna, the trail travels almost entirely through forests and natural and cultivated fields until it reaches the outskirts of a (Kinneret). The trail then continues along the northern shore of the lake to the church at Tabgha, which commemorates the New Testament account of Jesus feeding the multitudes, and then on to the church and gardens at the Mount of Beatitudes, which commemorates the Sermon on the Mount, before arriving at the ancient lakeside fishing village of Capernaum, with its extensive ruins and modern church

Probable route for Jesus in Jerusalem:trial, judgment and crucifixion
Jesus came into Jerusalem on the back of a colt of a she-ass that was found in a town near Bethphage, where he was born (1, top right corner of map above). The people greeted him with chants of ‘Hosanna,’ which literally translates as ‘Save now.’. As they walked along the path, they spread their cloaks and waved palm branches as a blessing. He returned to Bethany after completing his instruction in the Temple (2). The washing of the Temple courtyards is depicted in the synoptic Gospels as taking occurred during this visit.
This dinner has been scheduled to coincide with the Pascal meal and has several references to the Jewish Passover rite.
The throng, commanded by Judas Iscariot, one of the Twelve, was equipped with swords and clubs when they arrived and captured him.
During his detention, he was interviewed first by the previous high priest Annas, who then testified before an unofficial tribunal presided over by the current high priest himself.
Inquisitors questioned Jesus about his position and intentions, but even though they considered his responses to be blasphemous, they were not authorized to execute him.
This was suggested by Jesus’ claim to be “King of the Jews,” which was taken as a revolt against the Emperor.
Antipas was most likely a resident of the old Hasmonean palace, which served as the Herodians’ official abode when they came to Jerusalem on their trips.
We may believe the legend that the judgment on Jesus was passed at the praetorium set up in the Antonia because his primary motive for remaining in Jerusalem for the Passover journey was to watch the Temple during the mass pilgrimage at Passover.
His execution took place here, and he was nailed on a cross, as was customary in ancient Rome.
A tomb belonging to Joseph of Arimathea, which is located close by, is where he was buried, according to the same account. Matthew 21-27, Mark 11-15, Luke 19:28-23, and John 12-19 are the gospel references.
