 for Judea
From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  Judea
     After the Captivity this name was applied to the whole of the
     country west of the Jordan (Hag. 1:1, 14; 2:2). But under the
     Romans, in the time of Christ, it denoted the southernmost of
     the three divisions of Palestine (Matt. 2:1, 5; 3:1; 4:25),
     although it was also sometimes used for Palestine generally
     (Acts 28:21).
     
       The province of Judea, as distinguished from Galilee and
     Samaria, included the territories of the tribes of Judah,
     Benjamin, Dan, Simeon, and part of Ephraim. Under the Romans it
     was a part of the province of Syria, and was governed by a
     procurator.
