In a previous thread I questioned how the bible's timeline fit into the timeline you find in history books. Prehistoric times aside and "cave man" days since those would have been wiped out in the flood (Also...know there was no such thing as a "cave man" but you know what I mean) So here is a very intense and detailed timeline. I know where things fit in after CHRIST but BC is where I get confused. You have the Sumerians, the Native Americans, the fertile Cresent and area of the Mesopotamia and within all the historical info of these times, there is never any explanation in regards to the faith/GOD/CHRIST even biblical stuff so I'm just wondering why not.

I'm not exactly sure why Biblical events aren't included other than that most of the "main events" from Biblical history are from Jewish history specifically. The big picture timeline events outline world events and major time periods in history for certain countries /cultures but doesn't go into great detail about religious things or for any certain people group.

Its so funny that you ask about a timeline and even the groups you mentioned because in our homeschool group, Classical Conversations (CC), one of the main things the kids learn/memorize is a timeline of history. Of course, this most definitely includes all of the Biblical events. The timeline BEGINS with "Creation and the Fall of man." Naturally, a secular timeline would start with "The Big Bang." Christians (and Jews) view the Bible as historically accurate so we use it just like a secular history book.

Here's sort of a quick timeline (not including EVERYTHING):

Creation and the Fall

The Flood and the Tower of Babel

Mesopotamia and Sumer 3500 BC to 2800 BC

Egyptians 3100 BC

Seven Wonders of the Ancient World 2550 BC

Patriarchs of Israel (Abraham, Isaac, Jacob) 2166 BC

China's Shang Dynasty 1766 BC

Hinduism in India 1500 BC

Phoenicians create the alphabet 1500 BC

Israelite Exodus 1446 BC

Greek Dark Ages 1100 BC

Early Native Americans 1000 BC

Israel Divides into Two Kingdoms (Judah and Israel) 931 BC

Rome Founded 753 BC

Lao-Tzu, Confucius and Buddah 604 BC

Golden Age of Greece 479 BC

Mayans 300 BC

Julius Caesar 100 BC

Caesar Augustus 27 BC

John the Baptist 5 BC

Jesus the Messiah

Pentecost and the Early Church 30 BC

Titus Destroys Jerusalem 70 AD (this is a significant even in history AND the Bible...and future prophecy)

Constantine Legalizes Christianity 313 AD

Council of Nicea (where the Nicean Creed was written) 325 AD

The Middle Ages 450 - 1500 AD

Muhammad Founds Islam 622 AD

Charlemagne Crowned Emperor of Europe 800

Aztecs 1100

Incas 1200

The Renaissance 1350

Gutenberg's Press 1455

Christopher Columbus 1492

------------- I'll stop for now....but that shows you a lot of what you were asking about or things you would recognize. I left some stuff out. We are still back at Jesus and Pentecost right now in CC.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb...I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made...My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together...Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139: 13-16
