Thanks to the folks at the ESV Bible Blog for highlighting the new (beta) product BibleMap.org which integrates Google Maps into it’s product (see the full post here). When you are reading a scripture passage, it gives you a link on a place name that when clicked, brings up the Google Map of that place (complete with zoom in & out ability).
You can then click on the marker (pushpin) of the location to get more details and references about that place. (click on image below for larger view)
This can really help your Bible study come to life as well as give you better understand what and where many of those ancient biblical place are! Hope it helps you in your study of the Word!
