Dating The Bible

Since God has been consistent in given details of times of events, reign of kings, ages of patriarchs, etc., an attempt was made in 1993AD to date the Holy Bible without any external reference.

Systematic Bible Dating

Systematic Bible dating of Bible events is a simple, accurate and biblical method. Only dates given in the Bible are used. These dates are either of a historical nature or prophetic nature. The years are in Jewish years (also known as Lunar or Biblical years). The beginning always starts with the year 0 CA. The year 0 CA signifies the creation of Adam and Eve. When Adam was 130 years old, Seth was born. Thus Seth was born in the year 130 CA, which signified a period of 130 years from the creation of Adam to the birth of Seth. When Seth was 105 years old, Enos was born. The year of his birth was 130 CA + 105 = 235 CA, which signified a period of 235 years from the creation of Adam to Enos’ birth.

Similarly, Jacob’s birth was dated as 2108 CA. However when Jacob was 130 years old he went down to stay in Egypt in the year 2238 CA (i.e. 2108 CA + 130 = 2238 CA). The Israelites were kept in bondage in Egypt for 400 years, thus the Exodus took place in the year 2638 CA (i.e. 2238 CA + 400 = 2638 CA). In a similar fashion, Zedekiah was carried to exile in Babylon 3547 CA, the rebuilding of Jerusalem was 3630 CA, and the crucifixion of the Messiah was 4064 CA.The chart below shows the resulting events by systematic bible dating.
