Studying the Bible in Chronological order with a timeline helps us to understand History. According to History books, the world began with a bang and man evolved over millions of years from apes.
History began “In the beginning”, Genesis 1. From “that beginning”, most ancient civilizations can be found in the Bible. Which means you can visualize History, Art, Languages, writings, weapons and Science while also studying the Bible.
God’s Word was not put together in reading order of events, or chronological order.
That’s why it is important to study the Bible through Bible stories in their Historical order. This helps kids connect the Bible stories with what God was doing and is doing in their life today.
The Bible and History reflect and complement each other. Studying God’s Word in chronological order helps us to understand how every part of world history reflects where God is and what God is doing.
The Old Testament holds stories that demonstrate God’s power as the Creator and protector of the world.
The New Testament tells of His humanity, as He came down to earth to dwell with us.
Together the Old and New Testaments, show us a God of love, power, mercy, grace and the willingness to die for people who did nothing to deserve His grace and forgiveness.
The saying goes, “All roads lead to Rome.”
The truth is, all Bible stories lead to Jesus.
