Objective of Biblical Geography.

Careful study of the historical geography of biblical lands is important.
For two reasons:
1. These regions have had immense influence on our world
in that. Not only in details such as the alphabet, metallurgy, astronomy,
Medicine, etc., but more fundamentally in the heritage of the Jewish religion
2. The study of geography is necessary for the understanding of the Bible.

The elements necessary for the study of geography are:

- The biblical map. It is an enumeration of cities not in logical or alphabetical order, but territorial. The origins of the biblical map can be placed in ancient Egypt as it is in this empire that we have some relations of Palestinian cities, written on fragments of pottery, clay tablets and in walls of monumental constructions.
- The tablets of Amarna. They are brick type ceramics. In 1900 BC Certain names of Canaanite cities were written in ceramics in some vessels that were destined to be broken. The message was written which after reading broke. Fragments found in the 1930's north of Palestine and Mesopotamia have reached our present day.

- The ostracas are pieces of pottery, jars where some text was written.

- In Muros put some drawing or writing, especially in the entrances.

- Stars are stone tablets or pottery where important writings were placed.

- Execution texts are figurines with scriptures (curse texts usually).

- Lists of cities. The OT offers us some of these lists, which present us with a true biblical geography since they express in the same terms biblical categories (Gn.10, Jos 13,21, II Chron 11,6-10).

- Lists of the Prophetic Corpus. Amos 1 distributes the nations from the geographical point of view. Act 3 mentions the participants and their cities. Between the Old Testament and us there are other sources: classical extrabiblical historians: Herodotus, Pliny, Estrabon, and Ptolemy. The most important works presented by the ancient Palestinian topography are the "Onomasticon" by Eusebius Esbita in 330 BC.

- Structured maps. The mosaic of Madaba from the year 600 d.C. On the floor of an Orthodox church in the Transjordan. It is still preserved but incomplete. The petingeriana tabula is a world map of rivers of communication reduced to a strip of 8 mts. Long by 33 cms. Wide, divided into 12 sections. The original could be s. III d.C., while the copy that has come to us is 1225 d.C. Which is preserved in the National Library of Vienna.
