My Comments

Man, the genealogies are just so mind numbingly boring. -_-

Wednesday: 2 Chronicles 3-5


  1. "His daughter in law Tamar alos bore him Perez and Zerah".

    Oh come on! This excerpt seems worthy of Dallas or Dynasty!

    Yes, I am that old and haven't watched television in fifteen years. I don't miss it.

  2. You aren't missing much, television wise. I watch a few shows here and there but really most of it is just a waste of time.

    And yes, at many times the Bible seems very day time television. Got all the sex and violence of a good day time soap, but sadly lacking in the evil twins and coma department.

  3. What about the twins Jacob and Esau. Okay, they can't both be played by the same actor since they are not identical but that is some good television.
