Adam to Noah
A brief synopsis for each book of the Bible can be found scattered throughout the posts of 2012. These are based upon the chronological reading schedule and the timelines that were introduced with it. The table below consists of clickable links to each synopsis. Since there could be several book introductions in a single post it might be necessary to scroll down the page to find the information you are seeking.




Here are a few books that I highly recommend for understanding Biblical history!

  • 514682: Unwrapping the Pharaohs: How Egyptian Archaeology Confirms the Biblical Timeline--Book and DVD Unwrapping the Pharaohs: How Egyptian Archaeology Confirms the Biblical Timeline--Book and DVD
    By John Ashton & David Down / Master Books

    Egypt still captures our imagination. The pharaohs, the mummies, the pyramids - such are the subjects of much mystery and imagination, and some have direct correlation to biblical events. Abraham, Joseph, Moses and Jesus each spent part of their lives in Egypt. But how do the biblical accounts line up with historical and archaeological evidence for this empire?

    By taking great pains in reconstructing the history and chronology of the entire sweep of Egyptian dynastic history John Ashton and David Down restore the timeline to its original place as a support for biblical history. Illustrated throughout with beautiful full-color photographs of artifacts, structures and art (along with a reproduction of the black and white photos from Zakaria Goneim's discoveries of the "Lost Pyramid" in the 1950's), Unwrapping the Pharaohs presents a wealth of information for anyone interested in these issues.
