Genesis/Exodus – Genealogy Chart Update

I found a few errors in my previous chart, all names that were missed in Genesis 25. I must have been sleeping when I read those. That is NOT to say that it’s perfect now, only that it’s better. In specific, I have added Abraham’s third wife/concubine and all of their children and the remainder of Ishmael’s children. I suspect that I need to add some dotted line Midians at some point, but I haven’t searched back and found all of the individuals identified as Midians yet.

There’s also a weird thing here: Sheba and Dedan are two siblings, children of Jokshan, one of Abraham’s sons. But they are also listed as children of Ramaah, seven generations earlier. (Noah -> Ham -> Cush -> Ramaah). There are a lot of repeated names in Genesis, so this is not a big deal, but it’s odd to have a repeated pair of siblings. (And Kings and Chronicles both talk about the Queen of Sheba, in the David story. Now I have no idea which of the two she was descended from. Oh well.)

Chart after the break…

This latest chart includes a few names from Exodus, color coded. That’s just the beginning, but I probably won’t finish the Exodus names until after I make it through the rest of Genesis. (And at my current rate… that will be quite a while.)
