Old Testament Timeline 2 The Old Testament; A Timeline of the Nine Eras and Historical Events Introduction There are nine major eras of Old Testament History. The nine eras are often named differently, but the chronology remains the same. All of the most important events in Bible history are dated. Bible chronology is an exact science (http://www.reformation,org/chron.html). The nine eras I will reference are as follows: Creation, Patriarch, Exodus, Conquest, Judges, Kingdom, Exile, Return and Silence The books of the Bible that coincide with the nine eras begin with Genesis and go through Esther. The era of Creation began about 6,000 years ago. The Creation era is in the book of Genesis, chapter’s one thru eleven. After the fall of Adam and Eve, the first remarkable event dated with accountability was the Flood of Noah. During the Creation era the Egyptians were discovering ink for writing and building the first libraries (Tyndale, 1997). From what I an able to read the Creation era began around 2500 B.C. and ended as the Patriarch era began in 2133 B.C The Patriarch era, which began around 2133 B.C., notes Abraham as a key figure. This second era comes form Genesis chapter’s 12 thru 50. Abraham was the human father of the Jews and Arabs, and the Spiritual father of all those who believed on the Messiah Abraham fathered two sons, Esau and Jacob. During this era, about 2100 B.C. , the earliest drug found to alleviate Old Testament Timeline 3 pain was created(Tyndale, 1997). Around 1700 B.C. the Patriarch era ends and the Exodus era would begin. The era of Exodus comes from four books of the Old Testament; Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. The first quarter of Jewish history ended with Exodus (http://www.reformation,org/chron.html). It was during this era of Exodus that God delivered the Hebrew people from slavery in Egypt
