A historical Timeline and five amazing facts about Adam and biblical events

CITESTE acest articol in limba ROMANA aici.

This timeline chart which you can actually purchase here is a great way to visually understand the Bible, especially the Old Testament. Here are some of the facts gleaned by overlaying the births and deaths of some of the biblical patriarchs.

  1. Surprises in the overlap. The Bible lists ages of fathers and their death dates, but a timeline shows us how they overlap. Methuselah, the man in the Bible who lived the longest, died the year of the flood. Adam was still alive when Methuselah and his son Lemech (Noah’s father) were born.
  2. Noah’s son Shem was still alive when Abraham was born. Abraham could have learned about the history of the world from Shem who learned about Adam on down from his grandfather and then passed it on to his great-great-great (8 greats) grandson Abraham.
  3. Who came first, Queen Esther or Daniel? They both lived during the Babylonian captivity. Esther’s book is first in the Bible, but she lived nearly a century after Daniel- toward the end of the captivity.
  4. What was going on in the world during important Bible events? For example, the Biblical prophet Daniel lived during the same century as the Chinese philosopher Confucius.
  5. What was happening in the Bible during important world events?  The Greek poet Homer and Solomon lived during the same century.
