Our Bible timeline chronology chart is a great tool for teachers, the Bible study leader,  for the homeschool situation, and for personal Bible study.


This Bible Timeline banner emerged out of our weekly Bible study in 2004.

Many of the participants had little understanding of historical dating of other events and people through out the Bible and Church History. I was frustrated by not being able to show the things I was teaching in perspective and in relation to God’s unfolding plan.

It is not designed to be an academic masterpiece, while it does have much information, it was designed to show perspective. It is simply meant to reflect the events and people somewhere close to the correct time period and in right relation to the events and people existing before and those who came after.

Many dates are debated by scholars and I do not state the dates in a dogmatic way.

  • Key people and events are in large print so that it can be read across the room, with more detail in small print.
  • Not one but two different time scales showing the timeline of Jesus life.
  • The BibleTimeLine Chart is downloadable and is a PDF file and an Excel file (if you do not have Microsoft Excel, you can download Open Office free of charge to open and print the Timeline).
  • You can use it either on screen as a software tool OR …..
  • Print up your own Bible timeline chart on A3/A4 paper to the size or sizes that suited you – 2 feet long / 500mm OR 5 feet long/1.5 meters and be folded up to fit in your Bible cover pocket OR ….
  • Full size at 12 feet long (3.6 metres), OR …..
  • Any size in between.

For he was a doer of marvelous deeds, a teacher of men who received the truth with pleasure. He led away many Jews, and also many         of the Greeks. This man was the Christ. And when Pilate had condemned him to the cross on his impeachment by the chief men among us, those who had loved him at first did not cease; for he appeared to them on the third day alive again, the divine prophets having spoken these and thousands of other  wonderful things about him:  and even now the tribe of  Christians so named after him, has not yet died out.”                                                                     Antiquities of the Jews, by Josephus, Jewish historian

Just Some Thoughts

I love God’s Word and this Bible timeline has been very useful in my own teaching and personal study. When I first put it all together, I did not imagine that I would be supplying it to people all over the world.

This last couple of years has been very difficult and by way of personal testimony, through the heartaches, the anxiety, the financial insecurity, God has carried me so beautifully. I have expressed it to many friends by likening it to the ‘Footprints In The Sand’poetry. I have felt the hands of the Father lift and carry me in a special way. Indeed He has not forsaken me and even though the overall situation has ended in the way I so dearly wanted, I am at peace with God and feel very privileged to be a son of the Father. I can but worship Him with all my heart and petition that I may remain faithful to the very end. Never taking my eyes off Him.

When I think about how how God has lead and worked with His people right through the Bible for thousands of years; through Church history for two thousand years, I am humbled that He would stoop to notice and work with me also. It is truly all about Christ Jesus and when we stand in glory, the reality of that will cause so many of us to say Oh, if only I had truly forsaken all meaningless things to serve Him more fully.”

How wonderful you are precious Lord, show me Your ways, that I might be like You.

1054 AD And The Eastern Orthodox Church

Before 1054, Roman Catholicism and the Eastern Orthodox churches were just mere branches of the One Apostolic Church. Yet even so, for a long span of time, division of these two factions of Christendom had been pervasive, which gradually increased. The rift had caused a widespread schism, which primarily traces its roots from their differences in culture, religion and politics. In that fateful year, 1054 AD, an official split had occured when Roman Catholicism’s leader, Pope Leo IX, had excommunicated Constantinople’s Patriarch, Michael Cerularious, who had condemned the pope to return the favor, which resulted to mutual excommunication. Because of this, the church had remained in division and are separate even up to present. Constantinople’s Patriarch, Michael Cerularius, had assumed office from 1043-1058 AD, which had spanned the time when Eastern Orthodoxy had seperated itself formally from Roman Catholicism. He had played a key role in propagating the circumstances which eventually led to the Great Schism between the two Churches. During the era of the Crusades in 1095 AD, Rome had allied themselves with Constantinople which would protect the Holy land from the Turks, which had provided a small spark, heralding the slim possibility of reuniting the two opposing factions. Yet, in the year 1204, which marked the Fourth Crusade’s end, which caused the Romans’ Sacking of the Constantinople city, that small ray had been extinguished as the hostility between the two factions had continued to become worse. Up to the present era, the Roman Catholics in the West and the Orthodox Church in the East had remained determinedly divided and autonomous, unwilling to reconcile. However, in the year 1965, The Patriarch Athenagoras and Pope Paul the Sixth had agreed to rescind their excommunication to each other from 1054 officially, which, in the hindsight, is but a first step for peace.

Moses Received And Gave The Law To Israel

When God asks for something, we must believe in Him because he will be the one who would provide us the means to do it even if it appears to be impossibly hard. In this day, if our hearts are surrendered to God, great things will happen. This is the lesson from Moses who live around 1500 BC. It was only in Meribah did Moses became weak, and in his moment of weakness, he refused to just speak on the rock and instead hit it twice with his staff, defying God’s command. Because of this, God had forbidden him to enter the Promised Land. Moses is one of the most dominant figures ever mentioned in the Old Testament, for the reason that God had chosen him to redeem the Israelites from Egyptian slavery. He had found favor in God’s eyes and had therefore mediated God’s covenant with them. He had fulfilled his duties with zeal, as expected from God’s chosen, and had handed the Ten Commandments at Mount Sinai. Moses’s last task was to bring the Israelites to the edge of the Promised Lands, and even if he wasn’t able to enter it, he had fulfilled it nonetheless. Often, Moses had found himself inadequate to complete these tasks of epic proportions, but for every step of the whole process, God had been with him and worked through him. As a human being, Moses had strengths, and of course, weaknesses. Below are some of his strengths and weaknesses and how his life can be applied in this day and age. Despite of great risks of his safety, Moses had obeyed God’s commands. He had obeyed even if he saw that the risks involved were overwhelming. Moses had been steadfast in his faith to God, and God, in turn, had worked tremendous miracles through him. His faith was so great that he had followed God’s orders and believed in Him even when others didn’t. His closeness to God had enabled him to speak to Him everyday.
