I would like to second this. I had this question as well, but instead of rewritting, I’ll just add to Koop’s post.

In the lecture regarding Hebrew Religion, the concept of linear time was brought up. How exactly was this assumed? Did the Hebrew people keep some form of calendar? Did they date things? Literally, where do historians get their concept of linear time?
