Easily track the dynasties and reigns of the kings of Judah and Israel while you read Kings and Chronicles in the Old Testament. Judah is in purple and Israel is shown in teal.
Some books of the Old Testament are chronological, while other books fit in the timeline of or overlap with another book. Here you can see the main books, or “backbones” of the Old Testament, and see how the minor books (or “ribs”) fit into the greater context of the event of the Old Testament.
Including Joseph Smith—Matthew
Book of Mormon

Margin space in your scriptures is precious. Save space to give you room to write more notes by labeling your insights with these symbols. These are the ones I use to help me quickly identify what insights I had when reading certain verses.
