Side Trip: YHWH ‘s Promise to Däwid

I went down this side trip rather late in my journey. I wouldn’t say I found anything earth-shattering on this side trip. But, being a romantic and knowing that YHWH @Élöhîm is a romantic too, it was just something I had wondered about. So, I chased the story down.

My Journey: Solving a Logic Puzzle

Well, that was fun, figuring out how old Yaøáqöv was when he fell in love with Rächël based on the time clues given in Scripture. But what next? I still wasn’t thinking of this in terms of building an internal chronology of the Bible but that’s what I’d started doing in charting events by life years.

I don’t remember any longer why I kept charting life years. I guess I just got interested in it. I’ve always been interested in story chronologies, like Tolkien’s “Tale of Years” in The Lord of the Rings appendices. I grew up reading fantasy/sci fi novels and discovered many of the multi-volume series had inconsistant chronologies. I actually did chronology charts for some of them because I had picked up on the inconsistancies while reading the stories and wanted to know exactly what was what. Looking back now, I can see Rûãch @Élöhîm was training me to do a chronology of His Story:  only His Story is a true story.

So, what did I have with the charts I’d done to answer my first question? Combining them into one table took me to the death of Yôsëph at 110 years old, which was the 285th year since @Avrähäm entered Kenaøan. Okay. Did Scripture give life years for any of Yaøáqöv’s other sons?  It turns out that it does. Exodus 6:16-20 has a short geneaology of Lëwî’s line.

My Journey: The First Question

Through finding the answer to this first question, Rûãch @Élöhîm led me to compile the Internal Chronology of the Bible and everything else that followed in my pursuit of the truth of His Story and my appreciation of His artistry as an expression of who He is.

The First Question

In reading the story of Yaøáqöv and Rächël in Genesis, I saw a story of love at first sight, at least on Yaøáqöv’s part. And I wondered, “How old was Yaøáqöv when he fell in love with Rächël?”

Follow this link to the story of how I found the answer to the first question.
