The Bible Timeline: The Story of Salvation

The Bible Timeline: The Story Of Salvation

Hundreds of thousands of Catholics have learned to read the Bible with
The Great Adventure Bible Study Series.

The Bible Timeline takes participants on a journey through the entire Bible. They will go deep into each period of salvation history and discover the amazing story woven throughout all of Scripture. Using a unique color-coded system, they will learn the major people, places, and events of the Bible and see how they all come together to reveal the remarkable story of our faith. The Bible Timeline has been granted the Imprimatur.

Before you Study the Bible, get the Big Picture

Central to The Great Adventure is The Bible Timeline Chart: a simple, color-coded timeline of Bible history. It divides the entire timeline into 12 color-coded periods and then focuses on 14 books that tell the story in chronological order.

Key people and events that advance the story are highlighted so that the newcomer isn’t overwhelmed with too much at once. The Bible Timeline Chart and Bookmark show at a glance where every book of the Bible fits into the overall narrative context.

Your Group Will:

  • Read 14 narrative books of the Bible and discover the amazing story woven throughout Scripture
  • Learn how the key people, places, and events in the Bible fit together to reveal Godís plan for humanity
  • Study the Bible from a Catholic perspective and see how our faith is rooted in Sacred Scripture
  • See how the events in the Old Testament are fulfilled in the New Testament by Christ and the Church
  • Gain a greater appreciation for the Scripture readings you hear during Mass
  • See how God reveals himself to us through Scripture and learn how God's Word applies to your life today
  • Develop a life-long hunger for knowing God in his word and lay a strong foundation for further Bible reading and study
