I love to look at Bible maps and teach with them. Always have. Maps are far more than geography lessons. They are "graphic user interfaces" for a trove of information and reflection.

  • Maps are “storyboards” which the teacher creates in the student’s mind.
  • They are a visual prop upon which to hang our verbally delivered information.  
  • They are a graphic user interface that can store and trigger memories.
  • Maps harness our “love of the hunt”. (Where’s Egypt? How far to Sinai? Where did they go next?)
