The Holy Land in New Testament Times – Bible Map 11 in classroom size

As part of my teaching of the New Testament this year, I am going to have students move a tiny cutout of Jesus Christ around a big map in order to help them visualize where Jesus is at the time of his teachings. I tried to buy a map from Distribution, but it doesn’t seem to exist. So I made my own. I made a few slight changes to make Map 11 look better for classroom use. I dimmed the background image so that the text shows up better. I also enlarged the text of some regions and cities to make it easier to see. I made the Jerusalem dot bigger. I recommend that you print the “Overlap” files if you are experiencing problems. Those files should leave a small overlap on each page for piecing together. My version prints on three 11×17 inch sheets of paper in landscape orientation, or you can print an alternate version on six 8.5 x 11 inch sheets of paper. The over laps should work correctly. If they don’t, please comment below and I’ll try to fix it. This was pretty difficult to do, so I hope it proves useful to other teachers as well. I also included the original map, which prints on a single 8.5 x 11 inch sheet of paper.
