Bible Reference & Map Description

This is my map of Southern Israel showing Hebron, a town in the mountains of Judah, between Beersheba and Jerusalem. It was originally called Kiriath-Arba (Genesis 23:2; Joshua 14:15; Joshua 15:13).

Genesis 13:18 makes the first Biblical mention of the town, relating Abram’s move to camp in the oak grove owned by Mamre the Amorite. (see Genesis 13:18; Genesis 35:27). It was at the oak grove of Mamre that Abraham encountered 3 men and discussed with the Lord the fate of the cities of the plain (Sodom, et al).

Sarai-Sarah died at Hebron (see Genesis 23:2) and the cave of Machpelah,, near Mamre.

Several important characters from the Old Testament lived or died at or near Hebron. Among those who lived there were Abraham (Genesis 13:18), Isaac and Jacob (Genesis 35:27).

The Hebrew spies visited Hebron whilst scouting out the Promised Land for Moses (Numbers 13:21-22).

David made Hebron his royal capital (2 Samuel 2:1-4; 2 Samuel 5:5; 1 Kings 2:11) and ruled from there for over 7 years. When David’s son Absalom wanted to ururp his father he set up his base of operations at Hebron (2 Samuel 15:10).

Joshua took Hebron from the descendants of Anak who lived there (Joshua 10:36-37; Joshua 12:10), and Caleb retook it (Joshua 14:14).

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.
