The Bible Time Line covers more than 2,000 years, from before 2200 BC to 100 AD. Beginning with Genesis and Adam and Eve, the time line goes from Abraham and continues through the Apostle John and the Book of Revelation. The pamphlet provides key dates, events, and leaders from the Bible, world and Middle Eastern history. You will gain a new perspective on the place and time of biblical history when you see that:
- Moses was leading the Exodus while the Sheng Dynasty was flourishing in China.
- The first recorded Olympic game in Greece was held during the time of Jonah.
- The Greek historian Homer lived during the time of Isaiah, Amos, and Micah.
- Mt. Vesuvius erupted and buried the city of Pompeii just 50 years after Jesus' death and resurrection. The apostle John probably would have known about it.
- At the time of Jesus, Rome dominated most of southern Europe and northern Africa. Other powerful civilizations included the Kingdom of Kush in Africa and the Han Dynasty in China.
- Emperor Caligula who ruled 7 years after Jesus' resurrection was a madman. He made his horse a senator.
- Trajan, the general who destroyed Jerusalem in 70 AD, later became Emperor of Rome. He officially made Christianity a crime punishable by death.
- When Paul was taken under guard to Rome, he didn't see the Colosseum. It was built 4 years after his death.
- Emperor Nero, who had Peter and Paul executed, also had his wife and mother killed.
The Bible Time Line is one of the most comprehensive and valuable tools available to students of the Bible, as well as students of history.
- The Bible Time Line includes:
- The Books of the Bible and the centuries in which events occurred
- A special inset covering Creation to Abraham
- Biblical eras such as Abraham to the Sojourn in Egypt, Moses and the Exodus, the Judges, United Kingdom, Divided Kingdom, the Exile, Restoration of Jerusalem, Intertestamental Period, and ultimately, the New Testament.
- Lists key events such as the establishment of the Abrahamic Covenant, the First Passover, the Tabernacle, the Ten Commandments, the prophets, the kings and their years of rule, the restoration of Jerusalem, the building of the Temple, the birth of John the Baptist, plus so much more
- World history time line includes:
- World events such as the emergence of writing forms, the first code of law, the Iron Age, the Trojan war, the founding of Rome, the birth of Buddah and Confucius, Alexander the Great's conquests, Cleopatra's rule, the fall of Masada, and numerous other events
- Middle East history time line includes:
- The building of the Egyptian pyramids, the rule of Amenhotep II (among other Pharoahs), the rise of the Persian Empire, the Roman Empire, and literally dozens of other historical facts.
Review by: Paul Dare - January 21, 2011
I was recently provided a Bible Time Line from Rose Publishing in exchange for a written review. This is yet another very helpful resource produced by our friends at Rose.
All the standard bells and whistles come with this Rose Resource:
* High gloss
* Vivid illustrations
* Great attention to detail
* Ease of visual navigation
What I especially like about this time line is the integration of Biblical history with both Middle Eastern and world history time lines. Most Bible time lines I typically see only provide information, dates and people for events that occurred within the scope of Biblical history with little or no comparison to what was happening at the same time during histories not recorded within the sacred text. To be able to do a "stare and compare" of sorts between Biblical and other world events, is invaluable and helps put the student's study of biblical data into its proper context.
It looks like Rose has truly capitalized on their extensive research on other projects to really integrate that information, in the form of illustrations, pictures, and other graphic helps, within this time line.
To help keep the user on track, the time line lists the books of the Bible at the top of each era of history along the way. This is a great quick-reference tool to easily find where a particular book you're studying fits in the overall picture.
I only have one concern and its pretty minimal. The time line makes reference to the standard "ages" used by evolutionary scientists (Bronze Age, Iron Age, etc). I've recently been exposed to some evidence that seems to indicate these categories for eras of world history are not only not very helpful, but may even be completely false and essentially created by someone completely unqualified to do so. Check out Creation dot com for more on the "ages" debate.
Overall, a great resource. I've yet to meet a Rose publication I didn't like. The Bible Timeline pamphlet is certainly no exception.
