For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.  

Habakkuk 2:14


Therefore if any man be in Christ,
he is a new creature:
old things are passed away;
behold, all things are become new.
2 Corinthians 5:17

*An Excellent Tool for Treasure Hunting*
*A Unique and Valuable Gift*
*Appropriate for All Ages*

"We are happy to report that the Panoramic Summary of the Bible has been a best-seller for a few years now in our Creation Museum's stores.  It's trustworthy history chart provides an excellent outline for studying books of  
the Bible.  Furthermore, a panel that presents a summary of the days of Creation is a wonderful teaching aid in helping people remember the first week of history.  Also, its compact size makes it easy to slip in a Bible cover or in a shirt pocket.  We congratulate our ministry friend, Randall Barajas, for a best-selling resource at the Creation Museum."

*God's Word is...and leads us to...
 the greatest treasures in all the world!
In [Christ] are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
Colossians 2:2-3

*Nowhere else can you learn the true origin of the earth and all of the life it contains.
*Nowhere else can you discover the real purpose of your own life and find lasting joy and fulfillment.
*Nowhere else will you find such relevant wisdom and understanding for everyday life.
*Nowhere else can you acquire so much knowledge about what will happen in the future.
*Nowhere else will you be shown how to be reconciled
to God so you can live in harmony with Him forever.

The more we know God's Word,
the more we learn to treasure it.

The Panoramic Summary is colorfully printed and accordion folds into
 a pocket-sized card.  When the 14 panels are completely folded, it measures 3-3/4" tall x 2-3/4" wide x 1/4" thick and slips into a protective vinyl pocket.  When it is unfolded, the Panoramic Summary measures 3-3/4" tall x 38-3/4" wide.

The Panoramic Summary of the Bible is an excellent tool to assist you in your study of God's Word.

One side presents a timeline as a visual aid. It contains time
periods, major events and prominent people.  This proportionate timeline is based on the extensive research conducted by Archbishop James Ussher (1581-1656).  Ussher's primary and authoritative source was the Holy Bible.

The first panel of the timeline notes the first week with six 24-hour days of creation followed by a 24-hour day of rest. The years begin with 4004 BC and continue until 100AD with the completion of the writing of the Bible.  The main focus of lineage shows the blood and legal lines of Jesus Christ.

                                                                                                                                     The colored lines near the top show the names of each descendant, the year of his birth, the number of years he lived, his age when the noted son was born, and the year he died.  Note that Adam's line starts as a dashed line since Adam was created as a full-grown man.  

The bars at the bottom represent the sections of Scripture describing that time period.  Many of the prophets overlap similar time periods. 

The white vertical lines are placed to quickly see the four millennia.

A Biblical timeline...
        ...enables you to see the big picture of what God has done throughout history.

Clearly seeing the big picture...
       ...makes a seemingly large and complex book purposeful, understandable and intriguing.
      ...places each event into the historical context of the other events recorded in the Bible. a deeper and fuller understanding of the content of every verse.
       ...reveals the evidence that the young age of the earth can be derived using the Scriptures.
      ...encourages students of all ages to dig further for the treasures in God's Word, understanding there is a significant purpose for every part.
      ...inspires an appetite to know the God who is in charge of it all and for whose glory it all exists!

The other side of the Panoramic Summary gives a visual layout of the entire Bible.  Each book is listed in biblical order, showing the number of chapters that each book contains.  Each chapter is summarized in a few key words as a reminder  of the content of that chapter. 

A chapter-by-chapter summary... a contextual overview of the content of the entire Bible.
   ...helps to quickly find a particular passage in the Bible when the reference is unknown.
   ...makes it easier to compare Scripture to Scripture.
   ...allows the student to quickly familiarize himself with the length and content of a specific book of the Bible.
   ...assists in taking into account the whole counsel of God's Word.
   ...helps to see how one part relates to other parts of the Bible.
   ...motivates a student to dig further on a particular subject.

This side of the Panoramic Summary also includes the text from
Romans 10:13. 
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."

As mentioned on our Home Page, this verse, posted on a sign, 
was instrumental in my coming to the Lord. 

Creative Learning
 with Your Panoramic Summary of the Bible

Young children can grasp the idea of a timeline with a simple explanation of, "This happened first, then this." Everything they learn about the Bible will be more meaningful  when taught in the context of what they have heard previously.  

It is important to make it a habit with our children to refer regularly to God's Word with questions or concerns that arise throughout the day.  Use your Panoramic Summary to assist you in this endeavor at times when you are away from home and may not have your Bible readily available.

Use as a portable, non-electronic reference for key word search, spelling verification or memorizing the names of the Books of the Bible in order.

In your daily study, especially with your family, look up the timeframe in which the writing or events occurred.  Make your study times joyful and interesting.

Make a family project or a study project for an older student out of calculating the years listed in the genealogies to understand how Ussher determined the age of the earth.

It assists in making a quick outline for study of a particular book.

Research Ussher's Annals of the World and read about various Biblical or secular events.  Look on your timeline to find when these would have ocurred and find out what else was happening during, before or after this event.

Invent learning games to play with your children at home or while traveling in the car.  Who can find the event on their timeline first?  In which book would you find...?  What happened around the year....?  Bible Baseball... Tic Tac Know...

Review while waiting in line or in a waiting room for constructive use of your time and a possible conversation starter.

Give as a gift or reward to family members, friends, church members, Bible study group members, students, VBS participants, campers, etc.

Use in your church, ministry, bookstore, school, home education, camp, mission organization, etc.

Give as a gift to someone to whom you are witnesing, especially helping them to understand the reality of God in true history vs. naturalism and evolution over millions of years.


We pray that God would allow this Panoramic Summary to be used
as a witnessing tool to bring others to know Him and that it would equip, strengthen and encourage believers as we study, meditate upon and live God's Word.  May God use it to continue to reveal Himself through His Word as trustworthy and faithful.
