The timeline of the Tanakh can be estimated using the ages given in Genesis. These timelines are used by some biblical scholars to estimate the age of the earth by counting back the number of years associated with each of the biblical patriarchs and adding the years together. Dates are based on the Masoretic tradition. Years are given in Anno Mundi (AM).
