Live in Middle Tennessee and looking for an interesting Bible-related weekend road-trip? The Bible Lands Museum Exhibit will be at the West Sparta church of Christ, August 24-26 (Friday-Sunday).
Exhibit highlights will include “The Sea of Galilee Boat” and “The Taylor Prism” (or the Sennacherib Prism) amongst several other interesting replicas and authentic historical items with connections to Bible events and times.
There is no charge. Details including the exhibit times and additional contact information can be found here and a poster of the event can be found here. The website of the exhibit museum can be found here.
I was channel suffering the other night when the title of a show (Time Scanners) caught my attention. The info for the episode referred to the walls of Jerusalem during Jesus’ time being examined so I decided to check it out. The short of the long is I’m glad I did. It was an excellent and enlightening show. There’s a lot that I could say about it but instead I would encourage you to watch it for yourself. The episode is nearly an hour-long so you may have to come back later, but if you do I don’t think you’ll regret it. I don’t watch a lot of PBS but every once in a while their programming does an excellent job.
Here’s a link to watch it over the web, and here’s a description of the episode from the website:
Jerusalem: In this show the team sets out to explore the epic building legacy of Jerusalem. From the vast walls of the Temple Mount, to the incredible man-made mountain of Herodium, they plan to use cutting edge 21st century technology to analyze constructions made at the time of Christ. Given unique access to scan the iconic Wailing Wall, and travelling deep into the dangerous West Bank, the team treks across Jerusalem and beyond on the trail of King Herod’s remarkable building ambitions, discovering new revelations about just how good his ancient builders were and answering long held mysteries about Herod’s magnificent structures.

THE BIBLE ON ONE PAGE
An overview of the Bible can be summarized on a single page of paper. Fifteen historical periods make up the Bible. With a knowledge of these 15 periods a person can turn to any book of the Bible and have a general knowledge of what it is about.
These 15 periods are listed below, along with the approximate dates for the beginning of each period (as best as can be determined, recognizing that different Bible scholars use chronologies that vary slightly). The scriptures given in ALL CAPITALS provide the continuing story line of the Bible, while the scriptures in lower case cover corollary matters occurring during that period. Continue reading

Please see the disclaimer at the bottom of the chart and heed the warnings against disputes about genealogies in Titus 3:9 and 1 Timothy 1:4.
May the Lord bless you.
