Reflection Questions
  • Beginning with Genesis 1:1, write up the story of the Old Testament in a way that you can read without hurrying in sixty seconds.

  • Draw a timeline from 2000 BC to the birth of Christ, giving each period of 400 years equal space.

  • See to what extent the great epochs of Old Testament drama—Patriarchal, Egyptian captivity, Judges, Kings, Postexilic—fit this 400 year grid.

  • Plot as best you can five major personages of the Old Testament on this time scale. Add the books of the Old Testament in the periods to which they refer.

  • Now try to think of the great spiritual events in Abrahamic and Israel’s history, and conjecture when the various “books” of the Bible were actually produced. Plot these production points on the timeline.
