Headwaters Bible Maps: Maps that tell the Story
Maps are one of the most important tools for understanding biblical stories, and we would love to raise the standard for free online Bible maps. We also have maps you can purchase in both digital and print formats.
These are not the kind of maps you would find in a Bible atlas. We create resources to help you learn and tell the Story of the Bible; Headwaters’ maps give you the ability to take off your shoes and walk in the dusty paths of Abraham, Samson and Jesus.
The maps below show the movements of the characters in the Biblical stories and what passages describe their movements. These maps are yours to use free of charge, please share them freely. Headwaters Pro Series maps provide substantially more information about the characters movements in addition to being higher in resolution.
Years after selling Joseph into slavery, Joseph’s brothers stood before him once again. This time in humility as they we in need of his help so that they wouldn’t die from the famine. Of course, they didn’t know if was Joseph, but they ultimately found out and the family was reunited.
Like Joseph and Judah, the entire nation of Israel came of age in a foreign land. Then their cushy life in Goshen became difficult and God chose a man to save them. But he couldn’t be the guy unless God took him to a mountain to meet him face to face. So Moses spent some time in Midian before returning to Israel to deliver God’s people.
Moses delivered God’s people from bondage in Egypt, baptized them in the Red Sea, and led them to Mt. Sinai. Everything was going reasonable well until they built a golden calf to worship at the base of God’s holy mountain. Ultimately, that rebellious generation never got to see the promised land and wandered in the desert for 40 years.
There’s a lot more maps where the above ones came from. We’re still working on getting them all organized. For now, you can just flip through them in the gallery below.
