    More About The Bible Timeline
    The Bible Timeline--The Story of Salvation is a fascinating study which takes participants on a journey through the entire Bible. The weekly sessions explore each period of salvation history without overlooking the amazing story which is woven throughout all of Scripture. Using a unique color-coded system, you will learn the major people, places, and events of the Bible and see how they all come together to reveal the remarkable truth of the Christian faith.

    As you explore salvation history from its beginning in Genesis through the coming of Christ and the establishment of the Church, you will see how God’s loving plan for humanity has gradually unfolded, resulting in a greater love for God and a deeper appreciation for your faith.

    The Bible Timeline was developed by Jeff Cavins, Dr. Tim Gray and Sarah Christmyer and has been granted the Imprimatur by Justin Cardinal Rigali, Archbishop of Philadelphia.

    This newly revised edition of The Bible Timeline was re-filmed in high definition and includes new theological insights, animated maps of ancient Biblical journeys, definitions and spellings of unfamiliar words, classic art and contemporary images of well-known ancient Biblical events, as well as on-screen citations from Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
