- Time. The Old Testament tells the history of the House of Israel for about a thousand years. Genesis serves as a prologue to explain the origin of the House of Israel and its special covenant relationship with God. The history recounted in Exodus through Nehemiah and Malachi likely begins about 1450 BC and ends about 425 BC. A chronology of Jewish history in Old Testament times is found at Historical Overview of the Old Testament.
