269 Diagrammatical expansion of the quantum field theory with the finite time interval is discussed by evaluating the time evolution kernel. The coherent state representation is adopted which is the most convenient formalism for this purpose. It is applied to quantum electrodynamics (QED) to derive the Feynman rule for the kernel. The rule for the matrix element of any operator is also given. Our method can also be a systematic approach to the time dependent perturbation theory. As an example,
