To those who listen and see
Genealogies are boring.
Genealogies are just a list of names and can span for chapters! Unfortunately, the Bible contains several genealogies. I remember last year when I was reading Genesis I got to chapter 10. I skipped it. It was a genealogy. I’m sure I’m not the only one right? Quite naturally, one would dose off or skip to the next chapter. But that year. That year was different
Well first off I thought to myself, wouldn’t it be nice if we had a Bible with no genealogies? But wait a minute… a book containing genealogies is making a rather bold statement. A very bold statement indeed. These genealogies could be cross-referenced with secular sources. Though it doesn’t prove its legitimacy, a book with verifiable genealogies has some truth to it. Only truth would be bold enough to include a genealogy. Otherwise, the book is crazy. The next question is, “What about the other religions, do they have genealogies?”
