History Crash Course #36: Timeline – From Abraham to Destruction of the Temple

This is the 36th installment of this series and it is fitting for us to put into perspective the ground that we have covered, before we begin the story of the next exile of the Jewish people that will last the next 2,000 years. Note that we are following the Jewish calendar for these events (and not the Gregorian calendar which is at times 150 years at odds with Jewish computations). For more on this issue, see Part 21.
