Mapping The Passion

When reading about the events of Holy Week, it can all seem unconnected. We read the various place names, but can't really see how they connect. How near is Bethany to Jerusalem? Where was the Garden of Gethsemane, and the crucifixion site? Thanks to the ESV Study Bible, the Passion can become more geographically relevant, using Google Maps. Check out the Passion Week interactive map and maybe even use it as you read through the Gospels. Zoom in and see what those locations look like now. Above all, think on the Saviour who walked these streets, and carried our sorrows as he goes to die for our sins.
