Most Bible atlases do not cover this period in the history of the Kings of Israel and Judah. This map was created to fill that gap. It has been designed to be printed as an A5 size Bible insert.

Most bible atlases and commentaries present an overly expansive and generally unrealistic picture of Josiah’s kingdom. This map was created to give a more realistic portrayal of the political situation at the time and show the extent of Josiah’s influence and reforms.
This timeline involves some speculation about when the prophets delivered their oracles but was intended to give a sense of the time, and the interaction between Josiah, the prophets and the events surrounding them.
