Why Chronology?

Why try to figure out bible chronology?  Some say it’s a useless endeavor, that it has nothing to teach us.  Chronology is very difficult, but not impossible.  Bishop Ussher is probably the most famous chronologist, concluding that Adam was created 4004BC.  But then, why were the Hebrews so meticulous recording dates?  There has to be a lesson for the faithful.  Someday, when all prophecy has been fulfilled, the chronology will prove to all that God declared the end from the beginning:

““Remember the former things long past,
For I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is no one like Me,
Declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times things which have not been done,
Saying, ‘My purpose will be established,
And I will accomplish all My good pleasure’”  Isaiah 64:9-10

God made the chronology very difficult to figure out in order to hide the truth in plain sight.  Only those that really seek will find.  But all will find out with ease in the resurrection.  The way to confirm the correct chronology is by the parallels that God has placed in history that only God could have orchestrated over thousands of years.
