Anytime before Abram would severely ruin the format so I have chosen the birth of Abram as the start of the timeline, rather than the Creation of the World, to align with the Life of Abraham event.
*The Poetic Books cannot be traced too easily due to the nature of their writings, especially in the configuration of historical contents. Many Psalms give clues to author, time of writing, and historical events taking place at the time, and we know that many were written in the time of or even by King David. Proverbs is noted to have been largely authored or collected by King Solomon; however, sections of the book are unaccounted for in authorship and collection. Given the nature of these books, they have been combined on this timeline and given the earliest and latest thought dates for historical content, spanning across the time of the Old Testament (even thought most would have been written or compiled during the Davidic Dynasty).
