Abstract

The article takes a look at the use of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) as a tool for teaching biblical history. It notes that GIS can help scholars reveal gaps in data sources like ancient texts for Hebrew and Christian Scriptures. It explains the incorporation of GIS in a biblical studies course which proceeded from annotations of geographical passages in the Gospels of Mark and Matthew, and identifying narrative discrepancies presented by authors of the Gospels.
