Chart Between the Testaments (Paper)
James L. Boyer
The period between the Old and New Testaments has been referred to as "the 400 silent years." This is true in the sense that then the authentic voice of prophecy was silent from Malachi until John. But certainly this period is not silent in the sense that we have no information about it. There are many voices to be heard, and the history of the period is well known.
Dr. James L. Boyer (1911-2003) taught Greek and New Testament at Grace Theological Seminary, Winona Lake, Ind. from 1952 until his retirement in 1976. He authored For a World Like Ours: Studies In I Corinthians and produced chronological charts on the intertestamental period and the New Testament.
Dr. Boyer attended Ashland College, Ashland Theological Seminary, Bonebrake Theological Seminary (BD), Oberlin School of Theology (STM, 1942), Grace Theological Seminary (Th.D., 1952), and the Professorial Workshop in Israel of New York University. He also served for one term as resident director of the Near East School of Archaeology in Jerusalem.
