New Resource: The Regnal Chronology of the Kings of Judah and Israel

For many years I have enjoyed taking students deep into the world of ancient Israel, exploring its land, its people, and its stories. One place that is always most rewarding is the era of Israel’s kings, for this terrain is little known and yet abounding with riches.

The chronology, however, can get people tied up real fast. That’s why I’m excited about a new resource that maps everything out with clarity. The Regnal Chronology of the Kings of Judah and Israel: An Illustrated Guide puts every detail in its place, so with one glance you can figure out in any given year who is ruling, the king’s age and regnal year, and every extrabiblical synchronism. It truly puts everything at your fingertips.

Chris McKinny has been developing this resource for many years while living, studying, and teaching in the Jerusalem area. Both the digital book and the e-poster reflect his passion for the subject, and they’re now available at an introductory price of $9.99 for the e-poster, $19.99 for the digital book (pdf), or $24.99 for both.

I encourage you to take a look. You can order it quickly and easily here. And we would appreciate it if you would tell friends, pastors, students, and teachers about it. This sort of resource is unique, and we believe there are many who will absolutely love it, if they know about it.

  • FYI: I attempted to buy this using Paypal, but when I clicked the Submit Order button nothing happened (it said I'd be redirected). I backed up & repeated 3 times before giving up & entering my credit card info directly. In this instance, Paypal was not my pal.

  • I purchased and downloaded this some days ago. Everything went well (including the PayPal) and I've already benefited from this excellent resource. Thanks, Chris, for all of the work you put into it.

  • Chris, are you following anyone in particular in your reconstruction of the regnal years, such as Thiele or Christine Tetley? Or do I just need to buy the book to find out?

  • Tim - Hi! Well it never hurts to buy the book ;)

    It follows Thiele except for the reigns of Ahaz-Hezekiah where I follow suggestions by S. Horn and L. McFall - the purpose of the chronology is to illustrate Thiele's chronology - not necessarily argue for it (although I do think that it makes a great deal of sense). Tetley's chronology is radically different - it follows the LXX and moves dates around half a century forward...
