It has been said, those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. Studying history is necessary to avoid repeating past mistakes.
While I largely agree that a working knowledge of our forefathers is a catalyst to improve the quality of our future, being able to understand how world history and Biblical history merge into one true timeline provide the only accurate account of historical events. . . . the development of mankind and society.
An organized timeline is a valuable resource to understand the course of mankind as it allows us observe how humankind chose to obey . . . and disobey the commands set before him by God. (See Deuteronomy 11)
Such a timeline exists, and I am so thankful for Grapevine Studies for creating it. I think it is Asher’s favorite Bible study thus far. Having this beautiful wall timeline will be an asset to future Grapevine Bible studies.
Last week, we began our journey of capturing the large picture of Biblical history. You might say that we are learning history thrice.
We briefly study each major biblical event and draw it in our three-hole punched bible timeline.
Later, Asher and Ezra have take our “class study” and transfer their stick figuring onto a 10-foot long timeline.
The third step is to place our world history onto our biblical timeline. Here we see how these normally separated facts really exist to fully develop an accurate worldview.
Grapevine Studies has created both and Old Testament and New Testament Timeline Study. You can also purchase a blank wall timeline.
