Biblical Chronology Part I
For the serious student of the Bible carefully reading it without any theological bias the natural chronology inherent in the Scriptures becomes obvious. For example the first book, Genesis begins with the creation account and the last book, Revelation ends with the establishment of the eternal order on the earth as it is now in Heaven.
The Hebrew Tenach also known as the Old Testament to the Christian has eleven chronological books advancing the narrative of God’s outworking plan for the earth. They are Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, Joshua, Judges, I Samuel, II Samuel, I Kings, II Kings, Ezra and finally Nehemiah. The Jews organize the books differently than the Christian but they all appear in both traditions. All the other books of the Tenach are either expansions or digressions of and around the narrative chronology advanced within the primary eleven books.Share on Facebook
