Greetings! In today's world, so many people have become more interested in the world outside of the area in which they live. More people these days are traveling more for vacations and for business. And because of that, more people want to know more about those parts of the world.

 

As believers, we also realize there is a world out there that many of us have not discovered. Sure, we've read some of the names of places in the Bible. But do we really know about those places? This group is here for those wanting to learn about the many different places throughout the Bible. Take a trip back to a different time and learn about those places, and how they differ in today's world.

In Hebrew, it is called Ulam, meaning a porch or hall. Thayer's Greek Lexicon gives it this explaination, “a covered colonnade where…

Lachish

While the first study in this new group was lengthy, mainly due to it being a study of, not just one but, two cities with the same name, this one will be relatively shorter.What was once a highly valued city in Judah, is now an archaeological site and an Israeli national park. Lachish, a city mentioned a total of 22 times in biblical scripture, is located in the Shfela (Shephelah) region of south-central Israel. It sits between Mount Hebron and the Mediterranean coast along the Judean Mountains…

Antioch

There have been several cities throughout the Bible named Antioch. Two of those cities were of major importance. And I am not talking about the modern US cities of Antioch, Tennessee and Antioch, California. One of the two Antiochs was in Syria, the other in Turkey. A family of Syrian kings who ruled much of Asia under the name Antiochus built both cities. The first, Antioch on the river Orontes, was about 300 miles (483 km) north of Jerusalem, and about 15 miles inland from the Medeterranean…
