Bible Reference & Map Description

This is my map of Northern Israel showing the Jezreel Valley, with Mount Gilboa indicated by a long tail red arrow.

The town of Jezreel is first mentioned in Joshua, referring to the tribe of Judah’s town allocation in the hill country (see Joshua 15:55-57 below). It was situated about fifty-five miles North of Jerusalem. Joshua 19:17-18 informs us that the town of Jezreel was a boundary marker for the tribe of Issachar.

The “Valley of Jezreel” lies on the northern side of the city between the ridges of Gilboa and Moreh. This name was afterward extended to include the whole plain of Esdraelon (Joshua 17:16; Judges 6:33; Hosea 1:5).

Date
Gideon 1191 – 1144 B.C.
Gideon was Israel’s 5th Judge, between 1191BC-1151BC (about 40 years).

Notice the figures on the border of the map.
If you look carefully at the map border you will see I have included some little black and white figures. I will add different figures to the borders of each map, adding characters that relate to the map subject.

Bible References
Judges 7:16-19 (NLT)
16 He divided the 300 men into three groups and gave each man a ram’s horn and a clay jar with a torch in it. 17 Then he said to them, “Keep your eyes on me. When I come to the edge of the camp, do just as I do. 18 As soon as I and those with me blow the rams’ horns, blow your horns, too, all around the entire camp, and shout, ‘For the Lord and for Gideon!’”
19 It was just after midnight, [1] after the changing of the guard, when Gideon and the 100 men with him reached the edge of the Midianite camp. Suddenly, they blew the rams’ horns and broke their clay jars.
