Judea

The tribe of Judah (and the smaller tribe of Benjamin) lived in the land of Judah, which became better known as Judea. It comprised the land between the Dead Sea and the Mediterranean Sea, now encompassing part of the West Bank. Jesus was born in Judea, and Jerusalem is located in this region.
