About The Holy Land
The Holy Land as a term used by Jews, Christians, and Muslims, is an area roughly located between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea but also includes the Eastern Bank of the Jordan River. Historically, it is synonymous with both the Land of Israel and Palestine, and is thus inclusive of the 20th century concepts of both Palestine and Israel and nowadays is part of Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Syria and Jordan.
For Christians, the Land of Israel is considered holy because of its association with the birth, ministry, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, who is regarded as the Savior or Messiah. It is also the land of his people - the Jews. Christian books, including editions of the Bible, often had maps of the Holy Land.
