The Judges

Some have had difficulty reconciling 1 Kings 6:1 and Acts 13:17-20 when viewing the length of the period of the Judges.   Matthew McGee presents a clear explanation of how these scriptures do not contradict each other and offers a maximum length of 326 years in the explanation titled ‘The Period of The Judges’.

The only difference of opinion in Matthew’s position and this timeline is the reign length of King Saul.  Matthew maintains his reign at 40 years while this work holds his reign at 12 years.   The slight difference in this timeline means the maximum length for the period of the judges is set at 354 years.
