    Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus, is located six miles south of the Old City of Jerusalem, within the West Bank. King David was born and raised in Bethlehem. According to the Torah, Rachel, the favorite wife of Jacob, was buried on the outskirts.

    This resource includes footage from the Church of the Nativity. Attested to as the site of Jesus' birth from the early second century, it was originally constructed in 327 and rebuilt after a fire in 565. It is considered the oldest continuously used church building in the world.

    The Shepherd's Field is one of two rival locations for the exact site where the angel appeared to the shepherds on the night of Jesus' birth. One site is run by the Greek Orthodox, the other by Franciscans.

    Finally, Herod the Great built a fortress and palace - called the Herodion - between 23 and 15 BCE on a high hill south of Jerusalem and east of Bethlehem. It is the only structure Herod built to which he gave his own name, and his tomb was discovered there in 2007.

    Capernaum is where Jesus called his first disciples, taught, healed a man possessed by an evil spirit, and raised the daughter of the synagogue's leader from the dead. Peter's house is where Jesus healed Peter's mother-in-law. And, tradition says the synagogue whose foundation can still be seen was built by the centurion whose servant Jesus later healed.

    Mt. Gerazim is located in the northern West Bank, approximately 30 milies north of Jerusalem. It is the site of Joseph's tomb and Jacob's well. This well has been associated with Jacob for more than 2,000 years, even though the well is not specifically mentioned in the Old Testament. This is where the Gospel of John tells of Jesus' encounter with the Samaritan woman.

    The Jordan River connects the Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea. This resource includes footage of the river near Qasr-El-Yehud, on the western bank about 10km east of Jericho, traditionally held to be the site where Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist. This is also believed to be the place where the Children of Israel crossed the Jordan and entered the Promised Land after their 40 years of wandering in the desert. Elijah's ascension to heaven in a fiery chariot after he and Elisa crossed the Jordan is also attributed to this site.

    Nazareth was a small village in the time of Jesus, living in the shadow of the city of Sepphoris. However, being the place where Jesus grew up has made Nazareth a thriving town while Sepphoris is an archeological ruin.

    The Church of the Annunciation, also known as the Basilica of the Annunciation, stands over the cave which tradition holds to be the home of the Virgin Mary and where the archangel Gabriel told the young Mary that she would become the mother of the Son of God. When construction was completed in 1969, this became the largest Christian church in the Middle East.

    Sepphoris was the affluent community known in the first century as "the Jewell of the Galilee." According to tradition, it is where Jesus' maternal grandparents, Anne and Joachim, lived and where his mother, Mary, was born. Joseph and Mary may also have worked in Sepphoris as Jesus was growing up.
