Jehoshaphat’s family tree

By Mark Morgan | Family trees , Jehoshaphat

King David, Solomon, Rehoboam, Abijah, Asa and then Jehoshaphat: this is Jehoshaphat’s family tree.

King Jehoshaphat was a descendant of King David, from the tribe of Judah, and began to reign over Judah about 100 years after the death of King David. He was a righteous and faithful king who would be high on the list of the best kings of Judah – although he had a problem with being too tolerant of evil people.

A family tree centred on King Jehoshaphat is included below. The family tree extends up to King David in simplified form, however the generations around Jehoshaphat include much more detail.

Jeremiah: Family trees

By Mark Morgan | Family trees , Jeremiah

Family trees: Jeremiah

Family trees

The Bible reports the lives of many families, and God portrays himself as a father who invites people to be his children.

The people of Israel are called by that name because God gave their ancestor Jacob the name “Israel” almost 4,000 years ago.[1] Continue reading

Jeremiah’s family / Jeremiah’s genealogy

Jeremiah was a prophet, but he was also a priest.[1]  What do we know about Jeremiah’s genealogy?  At the start of his book, he is described as the son of Hilkiah,[2] and we know that there was a High Priest called Hilkiah at that time.  Was Jeremiah the son of the High Priest? Hilkiah is called “Hilkiah the priest”[3] and “Hilkiah the High Priest”,[4] but his father’s name is not mentioned.  Listing the name of a man’s father name was commonly used to distinguish between people with the same name. Yet it is only when we look in the genealogy of the high priests that we find Hilkiah’s father was called Shallum. This consistent use of the name “Hilkiah” without saying who his father was suggests that saying he was a priest was enough to uniquely identify him. Continue reading

Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and then Joseph: here are Joseph’s timeline and family tree.

Joseph’s life – timeline

Joseph lived for 110 years – which seems like a long time to us, but was significantly shorter than the lives of his ancestors, including his father Jacob, who died at the age of 147.

Only a small part – just 11 years – of Joseph’s life was spent in the land of Canaan. About 93 years were spent in Egypt.Continue reading
