An solid understanding of history for the student of the Bible is indispensable. Our lack of it quickly shows in our preaching and teaching; they lack depths without a clear sense of history.

The mind-boggling plethora of persons and events involved, however, often puts people off history. History, at its heart, is the appreciation of associations between events—and the people who brought them about—and their consequences. Its task is to identify and to understand the principal principles of cause and effect if any. Time-lines—where all the important persons and events are laid out visually to show their relationships to one another—are ideal for this purpose. We hope these dynamic and interactive timelines presented here will make the crucial difference for you.
