Understand the Flow of Biblical History

Timeline CollectionGenesis through Revelation isn’t laid out in neat chronological order. For instance, Ezra and Nehemiah depict events that took place near the end of the Old Testament period. But those books are placed before the book of Job—even though many scholars believe Job depicts some of the earliest events recorded in Scripture! This is an accident of the literary arrangement of the canon, but if you’re trying to understand the Bible’s chronology, you face many other challenges. From sorting out the kings of the Northern and Southern kingdoms, to following the succession of Paul’s missionary journeys, keeping track of it all can be daunting.

When you branch into church history and theology, the problem only magnifies. It’s hard to remember who influenced whom, which theologian pioneered which doctrines, how schools of thought battled it out in the public arena, and which ideas came to define the worldview of their eras.

Power the Timeline with hand-curated resources

With the Timeline in Logos 6, you can explore thousands of years of history, search for specific events, jump from biblical events to relevant Factbook entries, and more. The Timeline covers more than 12,000 events and links them to passages in resources across your Logos library. Best of all, you can quickly see what other historical events occurred at the same time as biblical events, giving you a stronger grasp of the Bible’s historical and cultural context.

To get the most out of the Timeline, you need a robust library of resources that are specially tagged to populate this powerful feature. That’s why our product specialists put together the Timeline Collection, a definitive collection of resources to supercharge the Timeline. Not only does this collection fill your Timeline with events, people, and locations that will add historical context to your Bible study, each volume is a must-have resource in its own right. Here are just a few of the powerful resources that are yours when you get the Timeline Collection.

  • International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (ISBE) – Put this on your list of essential Bible-study resources. Edited by Geoffrey W. Bromiley this reference work contains over 9,000 topics and 3,500 cross references. Not only is it tagged for the Timeline, it will make your Factbook even more authoritative.
  • A History of the First Christians – This scholarly take on the earliest years of the church up to the fall of Jerusalem in AD 70 focuses on the development of Christianity in relation to the Roman Empire and Judaism. That means you’ll get even more insight into the cultural context of Scripture.
