INTRODUCTION TO BIBLICAL HISTORY By Ethan Allen
eBook (PDF): $5.00
This book covers Biblical history up to about 500 AD to 600 AD. I cover the material in a higher level overview. I include some place markers so the reader may find the material in Josephus’... More > works. The Old Testament covers the period from Creation up through the fall of the First Temple in 586 BC. The New Testament covers the period from around 25 AD up to around 100 AD. The period of time between the fall of the First Temple (586 BC) and the beginning New Testament period (25 AD) is called the Intertestamental period, or the Silent years. For this book I mainly use “The Works of Josephus”. Josephus lived from 30 AD to around 100 AD. His works cover Creation up to his death around 100 AD. He personally saw the 66 AD to 73 AD Roman-Jewish War. I supplement the Intertestamental period and the New Testamental period with several commentaries.< Less
