Google Mapping the Bible

Biblemap.jpgEver wonder where in the world Jonah was swallowed by a whale or where the apocalyptic visions of Revelations unfolded? There’s an app for that.

HeLives.com has built a Bible Map using Google Maps, charting chapter and verse of the good book on Google’s geographical tool. They eventually hope to have every Biblical landmark mapped on Google.

Here’s a location-laden passage from Revelations, Bible-mapped: “I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet 11 saying, ‘Write what you see in a book and send it to the seven churches, to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea.’” (Via and via.)
