Week 21 Day 1
The book of Chronicles was written
for the exiled Israelites
who had been overpowered
and forced into captivity
to remind them
who they are
where they came from
that collectively they are God's people
Remembering their history is key
to their survival as a people
Somewhere on the long list of names
could find their roots
a name to connect to
and say "I belong to that family"
And all these great names
yes, they could remember hearing about them.
NAMES Each person's life, a story. I Chronicles 1, 2 & 3

2Dan, Joseph, Benjamin, Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.
3The sons of Judah were Er, Onan, and Shelah.
These three were born to him by the daughter of Shua, the
Canaanitess. Er, the firstborn of Judah, was wicked in the
sight of the Lord; so He killed him.
4And Tamar, his daughter-in-law, bore him Perez and Zerah.
All the sons of Judah were five.

the sixth, Ithream, by his wife Eglah.
4These six were born to him in Hebron.
There he reigned seven years and six months,
and in Jerusalem he reigned thirty-three years.
5And these were born to him in Jerusalem:
Shimea, Shobab, Nathan, and Solomon--
four by Bathsheba the daughter of Amiel.
6Also there were Ibahar, Elishama, Eliphelet,
7Nogah, Nepheg, Japhia, 8Elishama, Eliada, and Eliphelet--
nine in all. These were all the sons of David, besides
the sons of the concubines, and Tamar their sister.

11Joram his son, Ahaziah his son, Amaziah his son,
