Thank you from another blog… Gospel Doctrine: Prophets of the Old Testament (Timeline & Chart)
“Here’s a timeline and a chart that I made of the prophets of the Old Testament. It shows how each prophet fits into the storyline of Scripture. The dates are based on John Walton’s Survey of the Old Testament. (Click to enlarge)”.
Then I found another timeline from this website, www.tonywatkins.co.uk/christian/bible-christian/old-testament-timelines. It does an excellent job of overlaying all the dates, kings, prohpets, and book of the OT in chronological sequence. There are 4 slides as you click through them. Enjoy.
Tasked with reviewing a sermon by pastor Ligon Duncan entitled The Adultery Test covering Numbers 5: 11-31, I was not sure what to expect or how it fit in with the Biblical narrative. Duncan successfully painted a picture for me of the timeline, both historical and Biblical, allowing me to put the passage into its proper context. The verses addressed took place after the Israelites’ exodus from Egypt during the time of Moses after he handed down God’s laws at Mount Sinai. The Israelites were camped out in the wilderness at a time when they would have been familiar with the idea of trials by ordeal designed to prove one’s innocence as these trials were commonplace among other people at the time. They would have been a captive audience having just incurred the wrath of God by creating a golden calf to worship and as punishment having to drink the ground up dust of their idol (Exodus 32: 26-29). They would have immediately recognized the significance as the woman drinks dust from the tabernacle floor mixed with holy water.
