Bible Lineages

What do we learn from the lineages of Jewish leaders [as recorded in the Bible].

  • They remained connected to their heritage.
  • They saw their place in history and gained perspective from it.
  • They were able to honor and pay respect to their forefathers.
  • They saw their lineage as a family blessing and passed on their blessing.
  • They used their heritage to provide a sense of stability for their children.
  • They sensed tendencies of ancestral giftedness and calling.
  • They could retain their identity even when exiled to a foreign land.
