The study of Bible chronology involves understanding the sequence and dating of events mentioned in the Bible. The term “chronology” comes from the Greek words “khronos” (meaning “time”) and “lego” (meaning “to say or tell”), indicating the computation of time. This allows for the proper placement and association of events in the Bible and the determination of accurate dates for specific events.
Many archaeologists and anthropologists date modern man back to at least 10,000 years ago. How are we to reconcile this when Bible Chronology takes us back to just a little over 6,000 years? It seems that some scholars who call themselves conservative or fundamentalist, who are supposed to believe that the original texts that contribute to our modern Bibles are “God-breathed” and fully inerrant, are not so conservative at times.
