Compiled by eminent scholars of biblical history, this chart provides a comparative view of parallel cultures in the time of the Bible. Enhanced by contemporary artifacts and images, the time line gives both a general overview (from c 3000 BC to AD 200) of the major historical events in the Ancient Near East, Palestine, Egypt and the West; and a detailed section, beginning from c 1650 BC, that highlights the biblical period and its rulers, kings, and prophets. Also features comparative maps of the Holy Land within the empires of Egypt, Assyria, Persia, and Rome.
Carta Jerusalem was established in 1958 and has for 55 years developed the world’s largest data bank for maps and texts depicting biblical reality & events – both Old and New Testament times and intermediate periods. They specialise in the historical geography of Bible lands & cultures, the history & archaeology of Jerusalem and other sacred sites, biblical and later archaeology of the Holy Land, and much more. Every event, campaign battle, journey and pilgrimage has been cartographically documented by Carta Jerusalem through all historical and archaeological periods from prehistoric to modern times.
