Sidon - Kids Bible Maps
This map shows the cities known as Tyre and Sidon in the
land of Phoenicia near ancient Israel.
The Bible says that when Jesus travelled to the region of
Tyre and Sidon, a Canaanite woman came to him and begged
him to save her daughter from a demon. The woman pleaded
and pleaded with Jesus until Jesus turned to her and
said, "Woman, you have great faith! Your request is
granted." And her daughter was healed at that very
Jesus also referred to Tyre and Sidon when he was
addressing the cities of Israel: Chorazin, Bethsaida, and
Capernaum. Jesus performed many miracles in these cities
but they still did not believe he was the Son of God.
Jesus said if he had done the same miracles in Tyre and
Sidon they would have repented of their sins and believed
in him! That statement would have really gotten their
attention, because they believed that the Messiah would
only be for the Jewish people not the Phoenicians or any
other people. Thankfully for you and me, Jesus came and
died for everyone!
