OT Dates & NT

1010 BC David becomes King of Judah
1003 BC David becomes King of Israel & Judah
970 BC Solomon crowned King of Israel & Judah
930 BC Divided Kingdom (1 Kings 12) – Northern Kingdom (Israel… “the ten lost tribes”) and Southern Kingdom (Judah)
722 BC Israel is taken into captivity by the Assyrians (2 Kings 17:23-24)
609 BC Josiah dies (2 Kings 23:29)
606 BC This is the first of the three exiling of Judah by the Babylonians. This is also the date from which Jeremiah’s prophecy of 70 years of exile is taken. (2 Chronicles 36:20-22) Daniel is taken to Babylon at this time. (Daniel 1:1)
597 BC This is the date of the second exiling of Judah. Jehoiachin is taken to Babylon. This is significant as the line of David to Jesus comes through Jehoiachin. (Matthew 1:11)
586 BC The third exiling of Judah is when God – through Nebuchadnezzar – burns and destroys the Temple and tears down the walls of Jerusalem making them rubble.
536 BC Cyrus becomes the King of Persia (Ezra 1:1)
516 BC The Temple is rebuilt – often called the Second Temple or Zerubbabal’s Temple. (Ezra 6:15)
486 BC Xerxes in the Book of Esther (Artaxerxes in the Book of Nehemiah) begins to reign. Xerxes is portrayed in two well-known movies: “300” which is about the Battle of Thermopylae and “One Night With The King” which is about Esther becoming Queen of Persia.
479 BC Esther becomes Queen (Esther 2:16-17)
466 BC 50 years after the Temple is rebuilt, Nehemiah goes to Jerusalem and finally rebuilds the walls of Jerusalem. (Nehemiah 2:1)
Synoptic Gospels The term “synoptic” comes from the Greek “syn” meaning "together", and “optic” meaning "seen.” Most commentators believe that Mark was written first, and then Matthew and Luke used Mark as their major source.
The Gospel of Mark The author is John Mark. Some have even referred to this book as the Gospel of Peter. It is most likely written in the 50’s AD. The only reference to the author is in Mark 14:51-52.
The Gospel of Matthew His target audience was the Jewish people. This is evidenced in the opening “genealogy of Jesus” as well as the generous number of Old Testament references. Most likely this gospel was written in the 50’s or 60’s AD.
The Gospel of Luke The target audience was the Gentiles. The dating of this book is most likely 57-59 AD. Since there are no formal greetings at the end of either book (Luke & Acts), this assertion that it is not a specific individual is highly likely.
