The present article is an outline guide to the persons and events in the Bible arranged according to chronological indications in the text of the Bible.

The Bible contains a collection of religious texts that are central to Judaism and Christianity.[1] Modern Judaism generally recognizes a single set of canonical books known as the Tanakh, or Hebrew Bible, as it is written almost entirely in the Hebrew language, with some small portions in Aramaic.[2][3] It is traditionally divided into three parts: the Torah ("teaching" or "law"), the Nevi'im ("prophets"), and the Ketuvim ("writings"). Christianity recognises as canonical the books of the Tanakh, in a different order, as the Old Testament. In Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy, additional books, called the Deuterocanonical, are included, which Protestantism regards as apocryphal. All Christians also recognise the New Testament, a collection of early Christian writings that consists of the Gospels, the Acts of the Apostles, the Epistles, and the Apocalypse. There exist New Testament apocrypha which have not been generally recognised. See Books of the Bible.

time event
120 years? YHWH declares that 'this they begin to do and now nothing they have imagined will be withheld from them' & 'man's days shall be 120 years'
YHWH sees that the whole world is spoiled (שָׁחַת˄) & violent & tells Noah[¶ 4] that he is going to bring an overflow[¶ 5] (מַבּוּל˄) of waters upon the earth.
Noah (500 yrs old?) builds Barge (300*50*30 cubits) with upper, lower, and middle stories[¶ 6]
on 2-10? Noah enters the ark (תֵּבָה˄) (Septuagint says 2-27)
on 2-17 40 days of rain begins (Septuagint says 2-27)
on 3-27? rain ends.
150 days water overflows earth for 150 days. (from 2-17 or 3-27?)
 ???? Wind (ר֙וּחַ˄) begins to blow back the waters
150 days waters recede for 150 days (same 150 or next 150 or overlapping 150?)
on 7-15 ark comes to rest upon (wrecks upon?) Mount Ararat אֲרָרָֽט
on 10-1 the tops of the mountains are seen
on 40th day opened window & sends out raven & dove.
on 47th day sends out dove: returns with Olive branch.
on 54th day sends out dove: never returns
on 1-1 removed covering of the ark: ground was dry
on 2-27 earth completely dry
 ???? Noah builds altar and sacrifices animals on it. YHWH makes covenant with him

each date can be absolute or can measure from Noah's 600th birthday or from some other event within the flood itself (like the 40 days)

Egyptian calendar:
1 Week = 10 days
1 month = 3 Weeks = 30 days
1 year = 12 months + 5 days

Enoch calendar:
1 Week = 7 days
1 month = 30 days
1 season = 3 months + 1 day = 13 weeks = 91 days
1 year = 4 seasons = 364 days

the following math is relevant and may be helpful to understanding the flood chronology but should not be taken to imply an endorsement of any one interpretation over any other:
150 days ≅ 1.5 seasons = 4.5 months
2-15 + 150 days = 7-15
150 days + 150 days = 10 months
2-15 + 7-15 = 10-1
1-1 + 40 + 7 + 7 = 2-25

From Genealogies of Genesis: The following table lists the patriarchs that appear in the Vulgate and the Septuagint, but their names are spelled as they appear in the King James Version of the Bible. Their year of birth differs according to the Vulgate or the Septuagint. (AM = Anno Mundi = in the year of the world). Also given is each patriarch's age at the birth of his named son and the age of the patriarch's death. Cainan, born after the flood is mentioned in the Septuagint but not the Vulgate. Methuselah survived the Flood according to the Septuagint (but not the Vulgate), even though he was not on Noah's Ark.

Nearly all modern translations of Genesis are derived from the Masoretic (Hebrew) Text. But there are also two other versions of Genesis: the Samaritan (in an early Hebrew script) and the Septuagint (a Greek translation of an early Hebrew text). Although, scholars are aware that these three versions of genesis 5˄ have different numbers, people who have seen only the commonly available translations are often unaware that other versions exist. The numbers in the Masoretic, Samaritan, and Lucianic Septuagint versions of Genesis 5 are shown in this table:[148]

¹: The names of these wives are recorded in the Book of Jubilees, not Genesis. The names of the other wives are recorded in both.
²: According to most interpretations, including the New Testament Epistle to the Hebrews, Enoch did not die,[149] but was taken away by God (at an age of 365). Genesis states that Enoch "walked with God; and he was not; for God took him."[150]

Solomon began building the temple 480 years after the Exodus[1_kings 6˄]. 410 years are accounted for in the book of judges. This would seem to leave 70 years to account for the wandering in the desert (40 years), Joshua's life after the conquest (unknown), and the reigns of Shamgar (unknown), Eli (40 years), Philistines (20 years), Samuel (unknown), David (40 years), and the 4 years that Solomon ruled before beginning to build the Temple.

Kings of Judah

Edwin R. Thiele in The Mysterious Numbers of the Hebrew Kings (1951)[303] concluded that two different methods for counting the years of a king's reign were used at different times and places. In the accession method, the year in which a king ascended to the throne was called his accession year, and the following year was the first year of that king's reign. In the non-accession method, the year of a king's accession is simply counted as the first year of his reign. According to Thiele, the Kingdom of Israel appears to have used the non-accession year method for counting years, while the Kingdom of Judah used the accession method until Athaliah seized power in Judah, when Israel's non-accession method appears to have been adopted in Judah.
In addition, Thiele also concluded that Israel counted years using the ecclesiastical new year starting in the spring month of Nisan, while Judah counted years using the civil year starting in the autumn month of Tishrei.

The years in columns 2-4 are given for convenience only. No claim as to their historical accuracy is in any way implied. They should be regarded as a rough estimate at best.

Messages to the churches

John turned and saw one LIKE a son of adam dressed in a robe reaching to his feet with a golden sash around his chest. His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. In his right hand he held 7 stars (the angels of the 7 churches), and out of his mouth came a sharp double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance. (holds the key of death and hades)

Church These are the words of To him who overcomes
Ephesus him who hold the 7 stars in his right hand & walks among the 7 golden lampstands I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God
Smyrna him who is the first and the last, who died and came to life again will not be hurt at all by the second death
Pergamum him who has the sharp double-edged sword I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give him a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to him who receives it.
Thyatira The Son of God, whose eyes are like a blazing fire and whose feet are like burnished bronze and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations-He will rule them with an iron scepter;He will dash them to pieces like pottery-just as I have received authority from my father. I will also give him the morning star
Sardis him who holds the 7 spirits of God and the 7 stars will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot his name from the book of life, but will acknowledge his name before my father and his angels
Philadelphia him who is holy and true. Who holds the key of David[1Chron 9:17-27] (rod of moses?). What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will he leave it. I will write on him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of the heaven of my God; And I will also write on him my new name
Laodicea the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of Gods creation I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my father on his throne

In the following Harmony Matthew is presented in order and the other gospels are made to conform with it. One could, however, create a Harmony based on any of the gospels. There is, of course, no guarantee that any of the gospels are in perfect chronological order.

The emphasis of the following chart is on where Jesus went and what he did rather than on what he said since he could have and probably did say the same thing on many different occasions. The first column presents all of Matthew (in order). The second column presents Luke down to Luke 6:12. At this point Luke jumps back to the Sermon on the Mount. The third column presents the remainder of Luke. The fourth column presents all of John (in order). Mark follows Luke's order (more or less) but uses Matthew's wording. It is therefore interwoven with Matthew. I have marked those parts of Matthew that are also in Mark 1:1 - 4:34 with an asterisk; and those parts of Matthew that are also in Mark 4:35 - end with a double asterisk; parts appearing in Mark but not Matthew are in parenthesis.

**18 At that time, (Mark says in the house in Capernaum, he asked them what they were arguing about on the road. they kept silent) (Matthew says disciples ask 'who is the greatest'?) (Matthew says whoever humbles himself like this child (same child that was cured of epilepsy?) is the greatest) whoever welcomes a little child like this welcomes me. (Mark adds whoever isn't against us is for us) if anyone causes one of these little ones to sin it would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around his neck. better to enter life crippled than to be whole and cast into hell (Mark adds everyone will be salted with fire. if salt loses its saltiness how will it be salted again? have salt within yourselves and be at peace) argument started about who was greatest.

**19 (Matthew says when he finished saying these things) he left Galilee to Judea beyond Jordon. healed (Mark says taught) large crowds. Pharisees ask 'is divorce lawful'? (Mark says what did Moses tell you) They are no longer 2 but 1. (Matthew says then why did Moses command that a man give his wife a certificate of divorce and send her away) (Mark adds when they were in the house the disciples asked him about this) anyone who marries after divorce commits adultery. (Matthew adds if so then it is better not to marry. not all can accept this but the one who can should). little children brought to him. The kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these. (Mark adds anyone who will not receive the kingdom like a little child will never enter it. Rich young man asks 'what good thing must I do to get eternal life'. Only God is good. Told to sell all his possessions. (Mark says his face fell) easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle. With God all things are possible. Disciples said we have left all. You will receive 100 times as much is this age and in the next eternal life. But many who are first will be last. Set his face for Jerusalem. (on border between Galilee and Samaria as he entered a village, healed 10 lepers?) Samaritan village does not we[come him. shall we call fire down as Elijah did? let the dead bury the dead. Then went back beyond Jordon to where John had been baptizing. in that place many believed.

**(Marks adds they arrived again in Jerusalem) teaching (Mark says walking) in the temple courts. Chief priests and elders (Mark adds teachers of the law) ask by whose authority he did these things. John baptism from heaven or men? (Matthew adds parable of 2 sons), vineyard tenants/Parable of the Wicked Husbandmen/stone rejected by builders, 20 by whose authority? vineyard tenants. stone rejected by builders. right to pay taxes? 7 brothers had one woman. whose son is the Christ? Greeks want to see him. 'unless a grain dies it abides alone'. 'Father glorify your name'. 'the Son of man must be lifted up'. 'trust the light while you have it so you may become sons of the light'. Jesus hid himself from them.
21 widow's offering.
(Matthew adds the wedding banquet). Pharisees went out and sent back their disciples and Herodians. paying taxes? (Matthew says that same day) Sadducees ask about 7 brothers having one woman. Pharisees ask what is the greatest commandment? (Mark adds that the man said you are right. Jesus said you are not far from the kingdom of God. no one dared ask him any more questions) (Matthew say while the Pharisees were gathered together he asked them whose son is the Christ) Why do the teachers of the law say that the Christ is the son of David? (Matthew adds No one could say a word in reply. from that day no one dared to ask him any more questions)
(Mark just says Watch out for the teachers of the law. they devour widows' houses. Sat down opposite the place where offering were put. poor widow puts in 2 coins)

**24 left temple and was walking away. (Mark says as he was leaving the temple) Disciples (Mark says one disciple) called his attention to the buildings. not one stone left atop another. Mount of Olives. As he was sitting on the mount of olives (Mark adds opposite the temple) His disciples (Mark says Peter, James, John, & Andrew) ask what will be the Sign of end of the age. Wars, earthquakes, famines are the beginning of Birth pains. This gospel will be preached then the end will come. Abomination of desolation. Woe to those with child. pray that your flight be not in winter (Matthew adds or on the Sabbath) If the Lord had not cut short those days for the sake of the elect (Mark adds whom he has choses) no one would survive. False Christs and False Prophets will arise (Mark adds so be on your guard) (Matthew adds as lightening from the east is visible in the west so will be the coming of the Son of man) He will send his angels (Matthew adds with a trumpet call) and gather his elect. lesson of the fig tree. about that day and hour only the father knows. some disciples remarked how the temple was adorned with beautiful stones and gifts to God. not one stone will be left atop another. (the Roman soldiers that eventually toppled the stones were reportedly looking for gold (gifts?) between the stones) sign that it is about to take place? each day at temple. each night at Mount of Olives.
**(Mark just says be on your guard, be alert. You do not know when that time comes. Its like a man going away and leaving his servants in charge. Keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will return so don't let him catch you sleeping. I say to everyone 'watch')
(Matthew says As it was in the days of Noah Therefore keep watch because you do not know when your Lord will come. If the owner knew when the thief was coming he would have kept watch and not let him break in. who is that faithful and wise servant that the master has put in charge. The master will come on a day he doesn't expect. If he finds him drunk then he will cut him to pieces)

Stood before the governor. "Are you the King of the Jews"? "It is as you say". Are you the king of the Jews. It is as you say. went back in and questioned Jesus. Are you the king of the Jews? Is that your own idea? Am I a Jew? What have you done? My kingdom is not of this world. You are a king then! You are right in saying I am a king. I came into the world to testify to the truth. Everyone of the truth listens to me. What is truth?

Crucify him. What crime has he committed? Crucify him. (Matthew adds that he washed his hands. All the people said let his blood be on us. Blood curse). Pilate releases Barabbas. Jesus flogged. Pilate speaks to them a third time. offers to release Jesus. Crowd demands he crucify him. releases the man in jail for insurrection and murder. When Pilate heard this he brought Jesus out.

**At (Matthew says about) the 9th hour, Jesus cried out my God why have you forsaken me.

earthquake, angel descends from heaven and rolls away stone and sat on it (perhaps this was inferred from marks on the stone). guards pass out. (whether this was actually observed or just inferred, afterward, from the evidence is unclear. it could also conceivably have been a dream/vision)
the women found the stone rolled away. entered tomb but didn't find body. 2 men in white suddenly appeared beside them. told 'he has risen. (See Resurrection of the dead). Remember how he told you while in Galilee that the Son of man must be crucified and raised'. women tell the eleven and all the others about all these things but aren't believed. Magdalene, Joanna, Mary mother of James and others with them who told this to the APOSTLES. found stone rolled away. Mary Magdalene ran and told Peter and the other disciple that they had taken the Lord out of the tomb.

Noli me tangere He tells them to tell his brothers to go to Galilee and there they will see him. & then turned and saw Jesus. told to tell his brothers that he is returning to my & your father & God. Mary Magdalene tells disciples that she had seen the Lord and what he told her.
**(Mark says that when Jesus rose early on the first day he appeared to Mary Magdalene. she told those mourning but they didn't believe.
While the women were on their way, some of the guards went into the city and reported to the chief priests. Soldiers offered money to say the disciples stole him while they slept.
**(Mark says Afterward, Jesus appeared in a different form (explaining why they did not recognize him?) to 2 walking in the country. they returned and reported it but weren't believed) same day. Cleopas[¶ 29] and one other going to village of Emmaus 7 miles from Jerusalem on the third day meet Jesus. they did not recognize him till near evening. They said that the women had told them about a vision of angels. returned to Jerusalem and found the eleven and those with them. were told that Jesus had appeared to Simon(??!!)

  42. ^ Ex 32 19And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses' anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount. 20And he took the calf which they had made, and burnt it in the fire, and ground it to powder, and strawed it upon the water, and made the children of Israel drink of it.
  43. ^ Ex 34 1And the LORD said unto Moses, Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first: and I will write upon these tables the words that were in the first tables, which thou brakest. 2And be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning unto mount Sinai, and present thyself there to me in the top of the mount.

The sons of Hur, the firstborn of Ephrathah, were Shobal the father of Kiriath-jearim...." The second version places Hur as the first child of Caleb by his second wife Ephrath. Hur had four sons, Uri the father of Bezaleel, and three others, Shobal, Salma and Hareph, who are said to have been the founders of the towns of Kirjath-jearim, Bethlehem, and Bethgader respectively. However, I Chronicles calls Hur himself the father of Bethlehem.

  13. ^ Othniel was related to Caleb, as his father Kenaz was Caleb's brother or Caleb's stepfather; both are plausible interpretations of Joshua 15:17. The Talmud (Sotah 11b) argues that Othniel was Caleb's stepbrother. When Caleb promises the hand of his daughter Achsah to him who will conquer the land of Debir, it is Othniel who rises to the challenge, thus becoming Caleb's son-in-law (Josh. 15:16, 17; Judg. 1:13).

  14. ^ 1 Chron 5 (YLT)
    26and stir up doth the God of Israel the spirit of Pul king of Asshur, and the spirit of Tilgath-Pilneser king of Asshur, and he removeth them -- even the Reubenite, and the Gadite, and the half of the tribe of Manasseh -- and bringeth them in to Halah, and Habor, and Hara, and the river of Gozan unto this day.
  15. ^ The Book of Chronicles states that Manasseh was married to an Aramean concubine, and that they had two sons, named Asriel and Machir (1 Chronicles 7:14) in the Torah's genealogy of Manasseh's family, which textual scholars ascribe to the earlier priestly source, Asriel instead appears to be the son of Gilead, the son of Machir (Numbers 26:29-34).

    Near the end of the book of Genesis, according to some English translations of the Bible (such as the King James Version), Manasseh's grandchildren are described as having been brought up upon Joseph's knees(Genesis 50:23, King James Version), while other English translations (such as the Revised Version) render the same text as born upon Joseph's knees; the gloss for this passage given by some English translations (such as the New International Version) is that the grandchildren were adopted by Joseph as his own children, at the moment they were born.

  16. ^ In archaeology, Omri appears several times over the next century or so, beginning with the Mesha stele, which recounts one of his acts as king: the annexation of Moab. He is also mentioned in the contemporary Assyrian Black Obelisk which states that Jehu was the "son of Omri." Later, Israel would become identified in sources as the "House of Omri" (Bit-Humria), with the term "Israel" being used less and less as history progressed (the other defining term for "Israel" is "Samaria", beginning in the reign of Joash). Archaeologically speaking, it would appear that Omri is the founder of the Israelite Kingdom, but problems persist since he is not the first king of Israel to appear in sources; Ahab is. However, dating complications (arising from the fact that if he followed Ahab he would be given less than three years to rule, far too short for a king that was as powerful and influential as Omri) make it easier to put Omri first in Israel's internationally recognised line of kings, although this by no means firmly establishes that he was the first king of Israel according to these sources.
  17. ^ The Black Obelisk of Shalmaneser III also refers to Jehu as son of Omri, rather than son of Jehoshaphat. Jehu destroyed the house of Omri rather than helping perpetuate it. By treating the Black Obelisk as historically accurate, and thus making Jehu a brother or half-brother to Ahab, it becomes much clearer why Jehu, who the Bible portrays as a son of the king of Judah, would become the head of a dynasty of kings over Israel. Jehu would in this situation be the wicked uncle who killed the rightful kings of Israel and Judah, attempting to usurp power, but only managing to hold onto Israel, to which he had an ancestral claim.
  18. ^ Judges 6 32Therefore on that day he called him Jerubbaal, saying, Let Baal plead against him, because he hath thrown down his altar.

  22. ^ from the Wikipedia article Herod the Great

    Josephus also stated that Herod was so concerned that no one would mourn his death, that he commanded a large group of distinguished men to come to Jericho, and he gave order that they should be killed at the time of his death so that the displays of grief that he craved would take place. Fortunately for them, Herod's son Archilaus and sister Salome did not carry out this wish.
