House of Israel & Timeline
Here are a few more tips to consider to prepare for the trip. If you don't get a chance to review this before the trip, we will review some of it together.
Sometimes we need a reminder of the "house of Israel". This article from the scripture study guide will be a refresher course. https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/scriptures/gs/israel?lang=eng When we are in Israel we will refer to Old Testament history, New Testament, and current political issues. Many topics will be taught so reviewing some basics will help.
About 3000 BC- the birth of Noah and the city of Enoch was taken up.
About 2000 - Birth of Isaac
About 1000 Jerusalem becomes the capital under King David
About 600 BC Lehi left Jerusalem. etc.
Then when I learn a new fact I hang it on the "hook" in my mental timeline. For instance, the ministry of Isaiah was about 750 BC, so I put it 150 years before Lehi.
