Old Testament Timeline Facts

Here are some Old Testament timeline facts that I think help put it in perspective:

  • The first Olympics were held at about the time of Jonah.
  • Daniel was about 80 years old when he was in the lion’s den. That incident took place about the time of Confucius and Buddha.
  • At about the time of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, indoor plumbing was first being developed.
  • Socrates live about 500 years after King Solomon.
  • King Tut probably ruled Egypt just a few years after Moses led the Children of Israel to the Promised Land.
  • The Parthenon in Greece was built about the same time that Esther was queen in Persia.
  • Rome was founded about the same time that Amos, Hosea, Isaiah, and Micah were prophesying.
  • Nehemiah built his wall about 200 years before the Great Wall of China was built.
  • The legend of the Trojan horse dates back to the time of Judges.
  • Cleopatra was queen of Egypt 30 years before Jesus was born.
