2.10 Bar chart of Old Testament kings and prophets

 

Bar chart of Old Testament kings and prophets

 

This is a study help to study the Old Testament kings and prophets. It is a bar chart that shows the tenures of the prophets embedded in the reigns of the kings of the northern kingdom of Israel and of the southern kingdom of Judah.

It is a bar chart that allows to see the periods of office of the prophets in relation to those of the kings.

A good example is the prophet Elisha who prophesied in the reigns of Joram, Jehu, Jehoahaz und Jehoash. This example is marked in the following bar chart as an example: Two vertical lines highlight this relationship to these four kings of the northern kingdom of Israel and one vertical line down to Jehoshaphat, king of southern kingdom of Judah (2 Kings 3:13-14).

Another example would be Zedekiah, last king of Judah. This example is not marked on this bar chart. Zedekiah lived at the time of the three great prohets Jeremiah, Daniel and Ezekiel. Jeremiah, in Jerusalem, and Ezekiel, in Babylon, prophesied against him. He did not believe them and he did not act on the prophecies, and he, Zedekiah, had to bear the consequences, and not only he, but the whole kingdom came to an end.

The reigns of the kings from King Saul to King Solomon are shown on different bar charts:
2.8 Bar chart of the Israelites
2.9 Bar chart of the judges - from Moses to Solomon.

The bar chart following after this bar chart,
2.11 Bar chart of Old Testament kings and prophets, No. 2
shows the same details as this bar chart, but in a more direct sequence, not separated into kings of the northern kingdom, prophets, and kings of the southern kingdom.
