12 Bible Era Overview

Use this 12 Era Framework to be able to identify the Bible’s main stories, main people and be able to put them in a timeline. Understanding the Bible’s big picture will help you see God’s plan through Christ from Creation to Revelation.

For Christians who want to get a grasp on the Bible’s big picture even though they have limited time.

In one short month you can get a good grasp of the entire Bible. We will cover all the major men and women, and all the major events chronologically.

As we view each era, we will Bible journal the main people, major events and a bit of geography. You can Bible Journal in your Bible, in a notebook, in a junk journal (one you addd Scripture it becomes a Treasure Journal), or Memory Dex Cards. This will be explained more in the class.

Once we complete the overview lessons we will spend two days on each era divided into four major events.

For the entire 20 lessons in you will have one-on-one support with Robin through the Facebook Group.


Since each era is spread across two days you should have plenty of time to journal.

  • Pray and read the daily lesson
  • Pray, read the daily lesson and Bible journal in a notebook
  • Pray, read the daily lesson create and a Treasure Journal Page with your notes
  • Pray, read the daily lesson and create a Memory Dex card with the verse of the day

Instructions for Treasure Journals, Verses Mapping and Memory Dex cards are in the class.

Optional Bible Journal Kit

All of the art necessary to document your learning will be available in an optional kit (printable and digital) from the Bible Journal Love Etsy Shop.

I used Max Anders 30 Days to Understanding the Bible in 15 Minutes a Day as an outline to create this course. He divides the Bible into these twelve eras. This book is optional but includes some very good information that would enhance this class.Book
