Genesis 15:18  "In that day JEHOVAH made a COVENANT with Abram saying "To your descendants I have given this land from the river of Egypt as far as the great river, the river Euphrates 17:8 and I will give to you & to your descendants after you the land of your sojournings all the land of Canaan for an EVERLASTING possession & will be their God."

Please note: If a link is broken please send an E-Mail  and every attempt will be made to correct the problem ASAP. It is very difficult to maintain these links without user input. Thank you. If you want Bible References to pop up on mouseover anywhere on this site or any site on the Web in the translation you prefer and in context then you need to check out Instaverse. Finally, note that most of the links below are to other website collections (offsite, not hosted by preceptaustin.org). Therefore you may encounter dead links due to changes of address at those websites. Note that some of the links will generate a pop-up entitled "Connect to biblecentre.net" which is a website not affiliated with preceptaustin.org. We have chosen to keep their links in this listing but if you want to view one of their maps you will need to contact them to obtain the right to access their links.

Very attractive site allowing visitor to take a pictorial tour of Israel. Open map by clicking on above link but it has a tendency to download slow even with Cable or DSL connection Click on "Israel". Next click cities you would like to visit (not all the cities have links).  Many of the pages have a 360 degree "Ipix" view which creates a realistic view.  Note that for some pictures you will need to download "Ipix"  (download

This is not a link to maps on the web but to a freeware program that allows you to download and install a satellite image map of Israel to be run on your own computer. Click for an example of what the maps look like and for a link to download the program. The information on the host site states that...

This program installs on your hard drive and is basically a small website that runs locally on your computer. It is centered around a satellite map of the Holy Land which is annotated with 135 place names. The map has a floating menu that always stays at the top left of the screen when the large map is scrolled vertically and horizontally. There are five zoom levels to the map, with the largest providing a 7200 x 5400 pixel image size, and the smallest being the 900 pixel wide image on the main page. The images cover the area from Mt Hermon on the North to the Dead Sea to the South...When a placename is clicked in the menu, the map automatically centers over the placename, to make it easier to find. Clicking on the name on the map causes a page to pop up with a narrative describing the site, one or more photos and links to scriptures referenced in the narrative. Clicking on a scripture link opens a page of the King James Version of the Holy Bible with the referenced verse at the top of the page.

Note also that Preceptaustin.org is in no way affiliated with Biblecentre.net.  This disclaimer is necessary so that you, the user, do not think that Preceptaustin.org is charging a fee to view the maps listed below. As of January, 2007 BibleCentre.net began to require a fee to access their maps (and other resources such as commentaries, etc). Therefore if you would like to access one of the Biblecentre maps, you must pay them a quarterly or yearly membership fee. When you click any of the Biblecentre links a window pops up and asks for your user name and password. Click Cancel which will open a window that links to their subscription payment options. I have chosen to continue to make these links available because they have such a large collection of maps and some of them are fairly unique. For example, they have a nice collection of high quality 3-dimensional terrain maps. Otherwise many of the free maps on this site (e.g., click for links to over 150 free high quality maps) are comparable to the Biblecentre maps. To reiterate, note that Preceptaustin.org is a free site and receives no remuneration from Biblecentre.net.

Note the list of empires on the left side of the map just above the picture of the World (the globe in bottom left corner). Hold your pointer over the empires and the route of Abraham and note map highlights the corresponding location. Note also that the banner across the top (which reads "The Ancient Near East, 1800 to 1400 BC) is a dropdown box.

This site also has links to a commentary on the Revelation of Jesus Christ but I would strongly recommend that you first do a Precept Upon Precept study on prophecy before you read any commentary notes on Revelation. When I led the 2 year Precept course on Revelation, I made the mistake of looking at the commentaries and became quite confused until I went back to simply observing the Scripture. The best plan to become proficient in prophecy is to first do the Precept Upon Precept Course on  Daniel (I know it's long but you will never regret the investment) as it forms the foundation for the accurate interpretation of your observations in the 4 Precept courses on the Revelation. I spent almost 3 years leading classes through Daniel and Revelation but it was the best investment of time I have ever made in studying prophetic literature. You can purchase commentaries but as discussed above you will find that in the area of eschatology ("future events") there is probably more disagreement and confusion amongst even the most conservative and orthodox Biblical scholars then in any other area of Biblical interpretation. Find a Precept class in your area (call Precept at 1-800-763-1990 to find a class near you...preferably one that is beginning the study of Daniel in preparation for the Revelation study or coerce your local Precept leader to begin this series if they've never led it). You will never regret it...the Revelation will come alive but an added benefit is that the Old Testament prophetic books (like Isaiah and Zechariah) will be illuminated by the Holy Spirit in a way you have never before experienced as so much of what happens in Revelation deals with God's Plan for the Ages at it relates specifically to the nation of Israel.

Woodcuts by Gustave Dore Click for works by Gustave Dore (Referred to as an "Artist of the People" by Vincent van Gogh. 212 of his beautiful engraved illustrations depicting many Old and New Testament. Not copyrighted. Make impressive black and white overhead transparencies for teaching.

Click for collection of hundreds of Black and White pictures associated with a number of passages in both the Old and New Testaments.

Another source I have found helpful searching for images is the Google Image Search. E.g., type "Abraham Genesis" (note - do not include parentheses) which retrieves 148 images (as of 3/12/02). As of 4/18/05 the number of image hits matching Abraham Genesis has increased to 708 (and this is using the preference Moderate Safe Search is on). The images retrieved include classics by Rembrandt, Michelangelo, etc.

In addition to the Google "Image" search engine you can also occasionally find other maps & pictures by using the regular Google search below. (Select "Search WWW) For example, type in "Ephesus" and Google retrieves over 241,000 hits (as of 7/22/03), this number increasing to 686,000 as of 4/18/05! The number one hit remains "Ephesus, Turkey: Panoramic pictures of Ephesus" - click it for a well done Virtual Tour of Ephesus which is the best preserved archeological site of the 7 churches of the Revelation. But be a Berean (Acts 17:11)

Sonlight maps on e-sword

Click E-sword the best free Bible study software available.  Multiple reference resources can be downloaded free of charge, easily installed. Online video tutorials. Many of my students have downloaded this program and all have given positive reviews. The set of Sonlight Maps (click for sample) are supplemented by a beautiful color set from another source. If you don't have a computer Bible program, consider this program. Once you use it, I am confident you will not want to uninstall it. I have found it much easier to use than another popular free resource, the Online Bible.

DOWNLOAD InstaVerse for free. It is a nifty, easy to download and install (no restart), simple to use Bible Verse pop up tool that will allow you to read every cross reference in this study quickly, in context and in the Version you prefer (Note: Only KJV is free. NAS, ESV, NIV, et al available for purchase) When you hold the mouse pointer over the Scripture reference, the passage pops up immediately and can even be highlighted (Go to "Menu" > Options > Appearance. Yellow works great). InstaVerse works anywhere on the Web as well as offline in Word for Windows, in email such as Outlook, etc. It can be enabled or disabled easily (Menu > Disable). Try the free version. It really works...you will be amazed and edified. (click here)
