The Examine Student Bible study book includes a map of where Jesus walked. As your students read through each chapter, they will discover that John includes many details about where Jesus went and how long he was there. They will notice that Jesus was on the move!

To help them grasp that Jesus is truly the God-man who walked in real time and space, use the map to trace his journeys and calculate distances.
