2. The Key Dates

The dates used are from creation, though dates BC (before Christ) are also given on later pages for convenience.

0 Creation
1662 The Flood
2083 Abraham is called by God
2513 The Exodus
2992 The beginning of the Temple
3418 The fall of Jerusalem

Since most people date the fall of Jerusalem to 586BC (give or take a couple of years) this gives a date for the creation of around 4004BC.
