Timeline for the History of Judaism

This timeline, from the Jewish Virtual Library, is one of the very best tools available for your Studies of the Bible! This particular timeline is the best I have ever seen.  It is an absolute Treasure to have access to.  When you study the Word, use this, it will be a rich resource for you, in many, many, ways.  How can one understand, and gain the proper perspective from, and about, Jesus, without knowing his background?
