"This Chart exhibits to view all periods of time. The perpendicular lines represent centuries. On the top of the Chart is given the Christian era. On the bottom the era of the world. The first perpendicular line on the left, gives the fourth year of the world, and the 4000th before Christ. The second the 104th of the world, and the 3039th before Christ. The history of the Church is given near the top. The first 2100 years presents the Church in an unembodied state. The next 1900, the Jewish Church. The next 1800, the Christian Church. A little below is the record of remarkable events.

Thus, the Call of Abraham was 1922 before Christ. Jerusalem was destroyed 70 years after Christ. The horizontal lines under the names of individuals, represent the length of their lives, the figures the time of their birth and death, counting on the Christian era. Adam was born the first year of the world, or 4004 years before Christ. He lived 930 years, and therefore died 3074 before Christ. Abraham was born 1996 before Christ and died 1821. Mahomet was born 571 after Christ and died A. D. 632.Dwight was born A. D. 1752, and died 1817. By subtraction the length of the life is at once given. And by looking to the bottom of the chart, it may, by a moment's calculation, be seen in what year of the World each event occurred or individual was born. Thus the Passover was instituted A. M. 2513. Christ was born, A. M. 4004. Luther, A. M. 5487. Edwards, 5707.
