Ezra, Nehemiah and the Re-building

Events in Mesopotamia and Judah from the 3200th Year of the World to the 3400th Year of the World

Part of our series of timeline studies:

Entries are color-coded and labeled (CSS2 is required for proper display, IE7 will not work right).

In this table dates are listed both in the Hebrew Year of the World (AM) and the western bce/ce. AM dates count up from leaving Eden, while the bce dates count down to Jesus.

Dates included are honest best estimates based on compiling available research into a consistent chronology.

Go to the prior (3000-3200) period.
