Many today are unaware that the Bible has specific dates pointing to key events and as translations have come about through the years, the dates in the Bible have been increasingly left out or eliminated totally. As a result, many attack the credibility of the Bible for not having a citable date for critical events happening in our history. Author Jim Dodge’s new book, “A Bible-Based Chronology from the Creation to the Second Advent of Jesus Christ,” will prove to the reader these timelines and the history in the Bible, giving context and illumination to the special time in history.

The book reveals three absolute dates that accurately link history from the Creation to the Second Advent of Jesus Christ: The first date, the year of the divided kingdom (930 B.C.) which enables an accurate chronology from the Creation to the Persian King Artaxerxes and links ancient Bible history with the Common Era.

The second date (June 17, 2 B.C.) confirms a precise chronology for the life, ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ that fits perfectly with scripture. Finally, the third date (May 14, 1948) marks the re-birth of God’s chosen people (Israel) as a nation and establishes the beginning of the Latter Days leading up to Jesus’ return.

“There are a lot of misconceptions about the Bible that I hope to clear up,” Dodge said. “I wrote the book to confirm the truth revealed in the Bible about God’s timeline for the ages and to spread the word as far and wide as possible that Jesus is coming again soon.”

Kirkus Reviews writes about “A Bible-Based Chronology”: “An often-compelling look at Judeo-Christian chronology… Dodge’s work is brief—just over 100 pages in length—yet complex and overarching.”
