Bible Times

Ya know, the times of that book everyone talks about.

Can overlap with Ancient Egypt (Book of Genesis and Exodus), Ancient Babylon (Ezra, Daniel, Esther), Ancient Greece (parts of the Apocrypha), and Ancient Rome (the entire New Testament), but is usually centered around the area of Ancient Israel — Jerusalem, especially. Home to staff-wielding doom-croaking prophets, Philistines, miracles, and loads of people in big robes who sit tableau-like around tables or rocks, looking awe-filled and reverent.

There are many biblical events disputed with regards to date or accuracy. The Israelite Exodus has been traditionally dated to 1400 BC (give or take a few centuries, as there is no other record for the Exodus other than the Bible), and the rest of the Old Testament from 1000 BC to 500 BC. The New Testament had the death of Jesus dated around 30 AD. Keep in mind that very few dates are accurate due to the various calendar systems used.

If Time Travelers go back to this period, they will probably have Adventures in the Bible.
