TIME OF THE JUDGES AND FIRST KINGS
Judge Length of Rule Reference Verse Notes
Moses 40 yrs. Ex. 7:7; De. 34:7 Moses is eighty at the first plague against Egypt. He lived 40 more years and died at 120.
Joshua ? Joshua 24:29 Joshua lived 110 yrs. There is no reference to his total years as a judge or the leader of Israel.
Othniel 40 Ju. 3:11
Ehud 80 Ju. 3:30
Shamgar ? Ju. 3:31 Probably during the same 80 years of rest of Ehud.
Deborah 40 Ju. 5:31
Gideon 40 Ju. 8:28
Abimelech 3 Ju. 9:22
Tola 23 Ju.10:2
Jair 22 Ju. 10:3
Jephthah 6yrs. Ju. 11:26 The time of the judges cannot be determined completely or accurately.  From Moses to the 4th year of Solomon is 483 years (not including the time of Joshua). There are also times of servitude under Philistine, Midian, and Ammon of 111 years.  If one were to add this time in sequence to the 483 years, the total number of years would be 594 years.  One can not determine whether any of these judges ruled at the same time (other than the reference to Shamgar in 3:31).  Some ruled from different regions so it is possible some could have reigned at the same time.  However, the reference in 1 Kings 6:1 states that it was the 480th year of the exodus that Solomon begins to build the temple. Therefore,  using only the references from the Bible and trusting in the word of God to be accurate and true we will have to use this

1 Ki. 6:38

Solomon begins to build the temple 480 years after the exodus. He begins in his 4th year as king. It takes 7 years to finish the temple. 2993 4th yr.
2999 Temple finished
1015 BC
1009 BC
2513 + 487 + 29 = 3029 yrs. since Adam
2513 yrs. since Adam + 487 (from exodus to finished temple) + the rest of Solomon’s reign = 3029 total yrs.

*(Israel goes into captivity by Assyria) *(Part of Judah taken into captivity by Babylon)
**(The rest of Judah taken captive by Babylon)
261 years until Israel’s captivity 393 years until Judah’s captivity
3029 + 393 = 3422 yrs. since Adam 
Total years + Time of Judean kings = Total years since Adam
3422 587 BC
To calculate total years since the captivity of Judah to the present time we will have to base our calculation on historical records. Since there are no specific dates found in the scriptures we will have to trust in the accuracy of recorded history and archeological findings. According to history, the year of the captivity of Judah by King Nebuchadnezzar was 587 B.C. This would give us 587 years until the end of the BC era (before the common era). Present day time would begin with year one. Therefore, it will only be necessary to add 586 years (year 587 is 3424) plus our present year to our original total of 3424 years. This will give us the total number of years of man on earth since the creation of Adam. Thus we have the following calculation for the present year.
3422 + 586 + 2020 = 6028 6025 2017 AD
