If I just opened my Bible and read this long genealogical list in 1 Chronicles 1-16, it would be hard to read because they would mean nothing to me. But because I read from the beginning of the Bible to here, they mean something, I understand it better! Now that’s pretty cool!! The names have significance! The awesome part is that all these genealogy’s lead up to Jesus!
Sometimes, when I read genealogies, I get bored. But then I remeber that the Word is living, and nothing was put in there by accident. All Holy scripture is God-breathed, isn’t that amazing?!?!
One of the things that I find really cool is that each name means something! You might find a name really wierd and laugh at it. I do that all the time. But then I check out the meaning and I’m like, “Now that’s a cool name!” I love looking up names and seeing what they mean. I would encourage you to look up the meaning of you name! It’s actually kind of fun! =)
My name Lydia= Maiden
Lucinda= Light; beautiful.
Sometimes, if you look very closely, you might find a story in the genealogy!
One time I was studying the book of Genesis. The leader pointed out how this genealogy is the story of Jesus! All the way back in Gensis?! It’s so cool!
Take a look at it:
Adam- Man of earth
Seth- is appionted
Enosh-a mortal man of
Kenan- sorrow is born
Mahalalel- the glory of God
Jared-shall come down
Enoch- instructing that
Methusalah- those in despair
Noah- comfort and rest
* Jesus coming down to save us!*
I just find that awesome!
