ZWINGEL BIBLE HISTORY TIMELINE

The piece was made by Rev. Rudolph P. Zwingel, a Missouri Synod pastor whom I do not yet know much about.

The drawing is one continuous piece on a roll of paper approximately 13 feet long, which covers the main stream of Old and New Testament History. Even though by necessity it is below divided into 11 pictures, one can see that Pr. Zwingel not only was trained in and experienced in teaching classic Lutheran Bible History, but also had a keen artistic sense that allows this timeline to both faithfully cover the major events of salvation history and draw the eye along the timeline with the depictions of the interwoven events.
