The timeline of the Tanakh can be calculated using the ages given in Genesis and Jubilee (biblical). Starting with the creation of Adam and adding the information when his son was born, the age of his son, etc. this gives a timeline from Adam's creation to the death of Jacob 2255 years later (according to the Masoretic text, the Septuagint timeline is significantly longer).
