The time period between the ending of the Old Testament and the beginning of the New Testament in the Bible

The period between the Old and the New Testament is known as the Intertestamental Period. Events and writings originating between the final prophet mentioned in the OT (Malachi, about 450 B.C.) and the birth of Christ (about 4 B.C.).

The 400 years between the Old and New Testaments of the Bible are called in the Intertestamental Period. During that time, the Maccabean Revolt happened and the Roman Empire came into power in the region.

the intertestamental period:

Plato lived in the Greek period , and contributed nothing to the old testament.

Another answer from our community:This period is called the intertestamental period or the Silent Years.

This depends whether is meant the time period it refers to, or the maximum time taken to write it. The Old Testament refers to the period from eternity past to eternity future ie infinity, but was written between the period from Creation in 4004BC (Ussher) to when Malachi (the last book of the Old Testament) was written (about 400BC) ie 3600 years.

Nearly all biblical scholars are said to accept that the Old Testament was written over a period between the seventh century BCE and the second century BCE. The New Testament was written during the first century and probably the first one or two decades of the second century CE. So ther would certainly be more than two hundred years from the completion of the Old Testament and the completion of the New Testament. This estimate excludes subsequent editing and interpolations.

It was actually the period after the Old Testament period. It's the 400 years from the end of Malachi to the birth of Jesus.

The pyramids are not mentioned anywhere in either the old or new testament.

The disciples of the new testament were the twelve people that Jesus asked to follow him and share the period of his ministry.

My (educated) guesses: Old Testament period: Animal horn shofars. New Testament period: curveless, valveless, metal trumpets.

First the Assyrians, then the Babylonians, followed by the Persian Empire, the Greeks and finally by the Romans.

Opinion The 400 years period is the approximate period of silence between the time of Malachi (circa 430 BCE) and the New Testament period. In Malachi 3:1, it is written that a messenger will prepare the way, which according to Christian tradition is John the Baptist as described in the New Testament. The time period between Malachi and John the Baptist is roughly 400 years.

In the old testament the ten commandment was kept in the ark of the covenant and the priests carried it.

There are two "Testaments" in the Bible, the Old Testament and the New Testament. Testament is another word for "covenant". The books of the Old Testament cover the time period under God's Covenant with Abraham and the children of Israel. The books of the New Testament were written during the time period under God's New Covenant, which was given to mankind after the Lord Jesus Christ walked this earth, became man's substitutionary sacrifice when He was crucified, was buried and rose again.

An overview of the history of the old testament period. From dates and events and personages of the ancient period of history when records give a phrase such as "In the third year of King X,".

The books of the New Testament were written over a period of approximately one hundred years. The most important events, recorded in the gospels, occupied a period of no more than three years. The Old Testament was written over a period of several centuries, from the ninth century to the second century BCE. It reports events said to have taken place over a period of some four thousand years.

A:Excluding the Catholic Deuterocanonical books, the Book of Daniel, written approximately 167 BCE, is considered the last Old Testament book to be written. The epistles of Paul are generally dated to the 50s of the first century CE, with Hebrews possibly a little earlier. The gap is just over two hundred years.B:No. It was over 400 years. The Intertestamental Period covers the span between the final prophet mentioned in the Old Testament (Malachi, about 450 B.C.) and the birth of Christ (about 4 B.C.).

The Greek Period from 323 to 167 B.C., followed by The Jewish Indepence 167 to 63 B.C., then Then Roman Period 63 B.C. to A.D. 70.

We can not be certain exactly how long the New Testament took to write. Paul's earliest epistles are commonly dated to perhaps the late 40s. while Hebrews could be even earlier. Some of the other epistles could contain material written well before 30 CE. Probably the last book in the New Testament to be completed is Second Peter, which some scholars date to between 120 and 150 CE. Thus, the New Testament spans a period of around one hundred years.

The earth has not changed over that period.

The Old Testament is believed to have been written during the middle of the first millennium BCE, and records the ancient Hebrew traditions dating back to the beginning of the world. The old testament starts with Genesis "In the Beginning...." which is to say the beginning of all creation

The sabbath was established by God in the Bible under the Old Testament. The Jews were to remember the sabbath to keep it holy. The Jews were to do no work. It was a resting period to be practiced once a week. We are not under the Old Testament and the sabbath is not mentioned in the New Testament. The sabbath does not apply to the Christian.

I think the reason is God did not speak through prophets during that period, whereas the Old Testament ends with Malachi and the New Testament begins with Jesus and John the Baptist. It may simply be because the Christian Bible does not acknowledge any texts written during that time as the inspired Word of God. There was roughly a 450-year gap between the writing of Malachi and the writing of Matthew.
