There is hope, however, for those struggling to remember a general timeline for God's word. The good news is that we do not need to know exact dates in order to comprehend what the Scriptures teach or even to understand its story flow. This series of short Bible timeline lessons approaches the problem of learning a basic sequence of events from a different perspective.
These lessons on Bible chronology center on the lives, using easy to remember dates, of seven well-known characters in God's word. They briefly explore the life of each individual and the notable events occurring while they lived.
This study series uses approximate and easy to remember dates tied to the life of seven important Biblical people. The use of these dates will aid in the compiling of a complete chronological story flow of the Bible.
These important individuals and the dates tied to them for use by this series are Adam (4000 B.C.), Noah (3000), Abraham (2000), Moses (1500), King David (1000), Daniel (500) and the Apostle Paul (1 A.D.). Before we begin our first lesson, however, we will cover a few general facts about dates and dating.
In our next easy lesson, we will review the life of the first individual who will help us construct a basic timeline of the Bible. This person's name is Adam.
