A Chronological Map from the Creation to the Fourth Century A.D.
This has been adapted from the Chrono-Genealogical Table in the Parallel Bible (1885). The dating here used is acknowledged as disputable, but primarily functions as a help in comparing the lifespans of various biblical figures, and is not meant as an authoritative guide to historical chonology.

Each century is divided by a strong perpendicular line. The length of the horizontal lines denotes either the duration of life, the length of reign or time they flourished.
