Sychar
A town in Samaria where Jesus spoke with a Samaritan woman. He informs her that he is the Messiah. (John 4:5-42)
Sea of Galilee
A fresh-water lake. Jesus performed miracles here, including the feeding of 5000 (John 6:1), the healing of a man who was deaf and mute (Mark 7:31), and walking on water Matthew 14:22-33, Mark 6:45-52, John 6:16-21)
Nazareth
This is the small town in the district of Galilee where Jesus grew up.
Nain
Jesus and disciples travel to Nain and see a funeral procession for a young man who was the only son of a widow. Jesus restores the man back to life. (Luke 7:11-17).
Mount of Olives
The view of Jerusalem from the mount is one of the most spectacular scenes in the world. Jesus sometimes taught and prayed here. On its slopes are the Garden of Gethsemane, Bethany and Bethpage.
Magadan
Jesus traveled to the region of Magadan, near the Sea of Galilee, shortly after performing miracles of healing and then feeding 4,000 people when the Apostles only had a few loaves of breed and fish. Matthew 15:29-39.
Jordan River
Jesus was baptized in the Jordan River by John the Baptist. It is the largest river in Israel and is formed by three streams in the foothills of Mount Hermon
Jerusalem
King David established Jerusalem as the capital of Israel about 3000 years ago. Here, about 2000 years ago, Jesus was crucified by the Romans and was resurrected.
Jericho
During the days of Jesus, the ancient site of Jericho was largely abandoned and there was a newer settlement to the south, which had been built by King Herod. Jesus performed miracles here, including the healing of a blind man named Bartimaeus.
Gethsemane
This is the site where Jesus was betrayed by Judas and arrested, as explained in Matthew 26:36-56 and Mark 14:32-50.
Golgotha
Golgotha, which is Aramaic for "the place of the skull," is the place outside of Jerusalem where Jesus was crucified. The place also is known as Calvary, which comes from the Latin language.
Gennesaret
Gennesaret was the place where Jesus and his apostles visited after he had miraculously walked on water. Matthew 14:22-36.
Ephraim
When a group of non-believers hear that Jesus brought a man (Lazarus) back to life, they plot to kill Jesus. They apparently feared his growing popularity. Jesus takes refuge in a quiet town called Ephraim, (John 11:54), and stayed their for a while with his disciples. John 11:1-57.
Emmaus
On the road to Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem, a man named Cleophas and another person saw Jesus and spoke with him, after Jesus was resurrected. Luke 24:13-35.
Egypt
When Jesus was an infant, his mother Mary and adoptive father Joseph took him to Egypt because King Herod wanted to kill him, as explained in Matthew 2:13-20. After Herod died, Joseph and Mary brought Jesus back to Israel and settled in the town of Nazareth.
Decapolis
Jesus performed a miracle in the region of the Decapolis, which means Ten Cities, in which he miraculously healed a man who was deaf and had difficulty speaking, as explained in Mark 7:31-37.
Dalmanutha
Jesus went to region of Dalmanutha after performing a miracle in which 4000 men and their families were miraculously fed. Dalmanutha might be another name for Magadan.
Capernaum
Jesus lived in this town for a while, after leaving Nazareth. He performed miracles here and chose some of his disciples, including Peter, who also lived in this town.
Cana
Jesus performed his first recorded miracle at a wedding in Cana, turning water into wine, sparing the wedding host of the embarrassment of not being able to serve his guests. (John 2:1-11)
Caesarea Philippi
Caesarea Philippi is north of the Sea of Galilee. Jesus and his disciples visited this region. Here, Peter declared that Jesus is the Son of God. This event is called "Peter's Confession of Christ" by Christians.
Bethsaida
In Bethsaida, which is on the north side of the Sea of Galilee, a blind man is brought to Jesus and Jesus leads him outside of the village and restores his sight, as explained in Mark 8:22-26. This might also have been the area in which Jesus performed the miracle of feeding 5,000.
Bethphage
It was in Bethphage that Jesus told two of his disciples to get a donkey, in preparation for Jesus' entry into Jerusalem, which was close by. Jesus later rode the donkey into Jerusalem, fulfilling a prophecy found in Zechariah 9:9, which speaks of a great king presenting himself to the people in a most humble way. See Matthew 21:1-11.
Bethlehem
Jesus was born in Bethlehem about 2000 years ago. See Matthew 2:1-12 or Luke 2:1-7. King David was born here about 3000 years ago. The prophet Micah prophesized that the Messiah would be born here.
Bethany
After Jesus was resurrected, he ascended into heaven somewhere near Bethany (Luke 24:50-51). This also is the town in which Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead (John 11:1-44).
