"Leonard's Biblical Chronological Chart" is a useful Bible reference chart that covers a lot of information. It's easy unfold and then correctly fold back together. It's also a nice size that's easy to handle. Some of the text was a little small, though, so you have to be standing right next to it to read it all. Overall, I thought it a useful quick-reference chart for either personal use or for use in classrooms at church.The information it contained: Jewish weights, measures, and divisions of time; it gave the Biblical term and the modern equivalent (like a Sabbath Day's journey equals 3/4ths of an English mile). The origins and main beliefs of the Sadducees, Pharisees, Scribes/Lawyers, Essenes, and Samaritans. A time-line border ring with the date, the event, the Scripture reference to the event. About the books of the Bible--who they're written by, how much history they cover, and/or when they were written. In the center, there was: A family tree of the Kings of Judah and when they reigned. A map showing the voyages of St. Paul with Scripture references. A map of Canaan at about 200 B.C. with the location of the 12 tribes of Israel marked on it. A family tree of Jacob's family showing his descendants at the time they arrived in Egypt. A family tree of the Kings of Israel and when they reigned. A chart showing the periods of Scriptural history (Creation to Deluge, Deluge to the calling of Abraham, etc.) and the number of years they covered. A list of Scripture references for the miracles of Jesus. A map of the Exodus: the Israelite's journey from Egypt to Canaan, with Scripture references.
