1AD-36? Life of Jesus Christ

Shouldn't this be 4BC-29AD?

Excellent post.
There are some groups mentioned that some believe should not be on this list. We must remember that they are a part of the American History experience and I think it is proper to include them.

Again, excellent post.

This can't be right, can it?

This timeline suggests that the book of Revelation was possibly written BEFORE:

2 John
3 John
The Gospel According to St. John
Jude, and
2 Peter

But I thought Revelation 22:18 said that nobody should add anything to what was written up to that point. How could those other books, written after Revelation, be scripture? Weren't they "added to" the words that were written in the book already?

That's what I've often heard. Nothing can be added to the Bible, because Revelation said nothing could be added. It was all closed. Hmmm...
