The Fertile Crescent

The Fertile Crescent is a designation made popular by James Breasted, an American archaeologist. Although the term is not used in the Bible, it traverses the area where most of the Biblical events occurred - a sickle-shaped region from the Persian Gulf, northwestward along the Tigris and Euphrates River systems, through Syria, Lebanon, and then southward along the Mediterranean coast through the land of Israel to Egypt and the Nile River.

Fertile Crescent The Garden Of Eden was located somewhere in the eastern region of the Fertile Crescent. Despite the efforts of many to find it, the garden would not have survived the Great Flood in the time of Noah.

Abraham was born in Ur of the Chaldees, located in the Tigris-Euphrates Valley region of the Fertile Crescent.

Also from the Tigris-Euphrates Valley came two of Israel's most devastating foes - the Assyrians with their capital in Nineveh, and the Chaldeans under King Nebuchadnezzar with their capital at Babylon. It was to that area that both the northern and southern kingdoms of Israel and Judah were taken off into exile - and where the "Lost Ten Tribes" disappeared from history.

Next, comes the Galilee region in northern Israel where are found many of the most famous places in the life and ministry of Jesus Christ - Nazareth, Capernaum, and The Sea Of Galilee. Many of His Miracles occurred there.

Then, down to Jerusalem, the very Crossroad Of The Earth, where the greatest events of Christianity have, and will, occur - including The Return Of Jesus Christ on the The Mount Of Olives.

Finally, through the The Sinai Peninsula to the rich history of Ancient Egypt. There, the Israelites lived in the region of the Pyramids and the Nile River before their escape from the Pharaohs at the time of the Exodus.
