After seeing the BibleWorks Timeline on a friends computer I noticed it listed figures farther back in time than Accordance does. This caught my attention because it was very helpful, not so much because of where they were placed in time, but to see the length of their lives and how they overlapped with events and other people.

 

It would be great if the data was expanded to include figures older than Abraham. I know there is the question of reliable information, but it could be placed on the timeline with an option to turn on and off (like the Critical or Conservative button) or with a "?" next to it to indicate it questionable reliability.

 

Another way to do this would be to create a separate timeline that is not listed as Israel or another country, but Early Biblical Characters.

 

Thanks for listening.

Great suggestion! Just wanted to add a reminder that you can add your own user items to the Timeline.
