The cities of Tyre and Sidon for Little Kids

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 moment.

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!

Now you know where the famous Phoenician cities of Tyre and Sidon are located!

Geography and ancient cities are important to study as we learn from the Bible, let's pray:

Dear Jesus, thank you for the Bible and for giving us the ability to learn about history. Help us to trust and obey you more and more each day. And help us to remember the things we learn from your Word. In Jesus name... Amen!
