      Bible History
      From Entering Canaan
      To King Saul
      470 years

      Dates in Green - 106E0A - are from Mauro, dates in blue - 094680 - are from Ussher and dates in red - 690404 - are from other sources.  There are two dates given with both Mauro and Ussher.  The first date is the number of years since creation and the second date is the BC/AD date.

      [#]  = # in [] following a name is their age at time of the event

                [T#]  =  amount of time of the event, i.e. oppression of Eglon [T40] means Eglon oppressed Israel 40 years

                [-date] = The date the reign or event ended if different from beginning date

        SP = spring, SU = summer, AU = autumn, WI = winter


      This is a difficult era for chronology.  As you will see Mauro and Ussher have some disagreements especially on the dates of Eli and Samuel.
