Bible Timeline

Why We Use a Timeline In Class.
It emphasizes that the events recorded in the Bible are true and really happened.
It is an easy way to visualize the timing and order of the stories and major events in the Bible.
It is a good tool for teaching the children what is in the New and the Old Testament.
It serves as a reminder of the Bible stories studied during the year.

How to Use a Timeline in Class.

Extend the Timeline without details to the present day.  Ask the children to write their names and birth dates on a piece of paper and hang them on the Timeline.
Ask if a person should read the Old or New Testament if that person wants to read about the life of Jesus.  Then ask the children to mark the birth date of Jesus on the Timeline.
Before studying a story, tell the children the people mentioned in the story and ask them to find the people on the Timeline.  Then ask if the story and the book containing the story is in the Old or New Testament.
Each Sunday, let the children add to the Timeline a picture, Bible verse, Bible Truth, name of a person, etc. that can remind them of the lesson for the day.  The following is a list of pictures you can add to the Timeline
Creation.
Add to the Timeline the date things were invented to help the children learn about life during Biblical times.  For example, the children can learn how people might have traveled during biblical times by hanging on the Timeline a picture of a boat, wagon, donkey, shoe, train, plane, and car.  Then let the children decide for themselves how people of the Bible might have traveled.
