Eden vs. The Garden of Eden
That is modern day Iraq, directly between where the Arabian Peninsula meets Asia. I’ll have a more detailed map in a moment. The reason it is placed here is because of the rivers mentioned in Genesis.
Here is where things get a little tricky. The first two rivers are completely ignored by “experts”, and they automatically place the garden near the Euphrates.
River #1 – Pison
River #2 – Gihon

River #3 & #4 – Hiddekel and Euphrates
Eden In Relation To The World
The Problem With Eden’s Location
Almost everyone on the planet is use to looking at the above map, because we live in a post “divide” world. In Genesis we learn the following:
Now we have somewhat of an idea as to why the earth was divided as such. But what happens when we put everything back together? We get what is known as Pangaea. It looks like the following:
Notice how everything fits together. Then look at the far right (East) of the map. What do you notice? The entire area of that contained Eden (Mesopotamia) was originally part of Africa, as was Turkey. According to the Bible, “the land of Nod” was located to the east of Eden, which puts it in or very close to Iran.
For those that believe that I’m only picking this map to prove my point, here are a couple of other maps from different sources, which show the same. The following maps utilize “Continental Drift”, which has lots of scientific evidence to back it.
Here is an image that shows how Continental Drift is believed to have happened. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find a larger image, but if you have one, please feel free to send it over and I’ll update this page with it.
While science makes the claim that Continental Drift happened over a long period of time, it most likely happened very quickly as Genesis 10:25 seems to indicate.
If we look even closer at the map, we’ll notice that Israel was also part of Africa before the earth was divided. Is it possible the area we call Israel fell within The Garden of Eden? It would definitely explain the following verse:
“And they came unto the brook of Eshcol, and cut down from thence a branch with one cluster of grapes, and they bare it between two upon a staff; and they brought of the pomegranates, and of the figs.” – Numbers 13:23
Unfortunately, we do not know how much area The Garden of Eden encompassed, but chances are that it covered a significant amount of surface area.
