There are three numbered bodies of water on this picture of the ancient Holy Land. You will find these bodies of water mentioned in various books of the Bible. On this map, you'll see the Biblical tribes and other information in Dutch that may help you, although I have tried to use the red numbers to cover up the sections that might give it away. Can you name the three bodies of water?

Hint: This one is particularly important in the Gospels.
Hint: This river connects 1 & 3.
