It is important that in order to understand the context of the gospels, we have a background on the history of the Israelites and the Jewish people. In addition, we should have an idea of what the region actually looks like geographically. After all, it would be pretty difficult to understand where Jesus travels without knowing what it all looks like. So I have put together a slideshow presentation, initially for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, that outlines the history of the Israelites in the Old Testament and of the events of Jesus’ life in the New Testament gospels.
