April 27 - 1 Chronicles 6: Genealogies of the Jews, Part 3 of 4 - the Levites

Today’s Reading: 1 Chronicles 6

The Message

English Standard Version

1 Chronicles 6 gives the genealogy of the Levites. There is little to no narrative today, so I won't bother putting together a summary or thought to guide your reading. If you are behind, today is a day to skip (don't even bother scanning). If not, use this day to reflect on what else you have read. This blog post will be short.

How Today’s Reading Contributes to the Gospel: God is Setting All Things Right

The genealogy of Israel is very important—they must trace their lineage back to Abraham to be consider a Chosen Person.

(Repeat of Tuesday's thought)
This reason is why this section is in our scripture. It would have been important for the people of the day to have their tie back to God's Promise to Abraham. Since we are the spiritual ancestors of Abraham, this section is not as important to us.

The high priests would need to trace their lineage back to Aaron.

Just as Israel would need to trace their lineage back to Abraham to stake a claim to the Promise, the high priests would need to trace their lineage back to Aaron to be part of his promise.

Enjoy your day. (I'm on vacation!)
