A Historical Timeline of the Bible

Table 2a Old Testament Chronology From Adam
to the Time of the Judges

From here forward this is a chronology of the Bible based on scripture itself and concurrent secular events which best fit the Bible.  These dates and events are presented in graphical form in my chart which presents a good visual depiction of Biblical events as told in the Bible.  AM = After creation of man.

This research paper gives insight that Sargon I (Sargon the Great) may have been the biblical Asshur, son of Shem, and that Lugalzaggessi may have been the biblical Nimrod, son of Cush: Assur and Nimrod in Conflict
