Bible Cities : Samaria


Ancient Samaria - Kids Bible maps This map shows the region of Samaria in the land of ancient Israel. The region of Samaria was known for its rich agriculture: wheat and barley, grapes and olive vineyards. Jesus passed through the land of Samaria on his way to and from Jerusalem, but most people of that time would have gone around Samaria. The exact boundaries of Samaria are unknown but we know that it went as far as the Jordan river in the east and to the coast of the Mediterranean Sea on the west side."
