Bible Reference & Map Description

This is my map of Southern Israel showing the city of Beersheba. Elijah ran here after Ahab’s Sidonian wife Jezebel threatened his like (see 1 Kings 19). Having arrived in Beersheba, Elijah left his servant and walked a day’s journey out into the wilderness. The red circle on the map represents a 10 mile radius from the city. The “X” is my estimation of where Elijah may have ended up, assuming he ventured into the wilderness south of the city. It was here, in the desert wilderness that Elijah offered up his life to God; received bread and water to sustain him on his 40 day and night walk to Mount Horeb (also known as Mount Sinai).

Date
9th century B.C.

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
1 Kings 19:3-5a (ANIV)
3 Elijah was afraid [1] and ran for his life. When he came to Beersheba in Judah, he left his servant there, 4 while he himself went a day’s journey into the desert. He came to a broom tree, sat down under it and prayed that he might die. “I have had enough, Lord,” he said. “Take my life; I am no better than my ancestors.” 5a Then he lay down under the tree and fell asleep. [5b All at once an angel touched him and said, “Get up and eat.”]
