Place: Arabia

Arabia

Arabia is a sprawling area south of Damascus and east of the Jordan River.  Mentioned a number of times in the Old Testament, Arabia was the place to which Paul retreated after his conversion (Galatians 1).  Later, in discussing the covenant of promise and the covenant of law (Galatians 4), Paul allegorically linked Hagar with Mount Sinai in Arabia.
