The Bible covers a long history of the nation of Israel and the beginnings of the Christian movement. It can be tough to wrap your mind around the 2,000+ year saga that the Bible tells, but fortunately for us, Matthew gave us a good way to break it down.
The New Testament begins by splitting the Old Testament events into roughly three chapters (Matthew 1:17), and beginning a new era. These chapters are still useful for understanding the Bible’s timeline today.
This whiteboard video will give you a feel for the overall timeline of the Bible by breaking biblical history down into four simple chapters:
1. Abraham to David
2. David to the Babylonian exile
3. Exile to Messiah
4. The age of the Messiah, or “These last days” as some New Testament writers put it.
