Day 120

1 Chronicles 1-2

1 chronWelcome to Chronicles. Chapters 1 and 2 are nothing but lists of begats which should take you about 15 seconds to skim before your eyes glaze over. The SAB notes a few minor inconstancies between these list vs the same genealogies in Genesis. The only point of interest in ch 1 is verse 19, about a guy who was named Peleg, “because in his days the earth was divided”. Apparently some creationists take this to refer to the development of continental drift…. But others disagree.

And think about 2:1-15 – it lists only 10 generations between Jacob and David. Does that seem reasonable? Only 10 generations for all those hundreds of years the Israelites spent enslaved in Egypt, wandering in the desert, and ruled by judges??
