A Historical Timeline of the Bible

Updated February 4, 2014

Update: I've recently come into some new material on the chronology of the kings of Judah and Israel.
Minor changes to the dates of their reigns have partially been made in the material presented and
will take some time to get everything in order. The biggest change that will appear is changing the
date of the fall of Jerusalem from 586 BCE to 587 BCE.
