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 cannot 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

*(Israel goes into captivity by Assyria) 
*(Part of
Judah taken into captivity by Babylon) 

24117 overlapping years = 224 years until Israel's captivity 
39316 (overlapping years)= 377 years until Judah's captivity 

3029 + 377
= 3406 yrs. since Adam 
3406 
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 3406) plus our present year to our original total of 3406 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. 
 
 

3406 + 586 + 2024 = 6016
