Along the way, I keep learning the value of passing down important information, especially through stories. (See Here.)
This Sunday, as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, how do we know its significance and the pertinent facts? Someone told the story.
It seemed good to me also, having followed all things closely for some time past, to write an orderly account most excellent Theophilus, that you may have certainty concerning the things you have been taught.Luke 1:3-4 (ESV)
Through Luke—and others—God made sure that the life of Jesus was recorded.
While homeschooling, I used the genealogy of Genesis to construct a time line. What surprised me the most? The life of Noah’s father, Lamech, and the life of Adam overlapped by 56 years. Lemech possibly listened to Adam’s first-hand accounts of the Fall and the promise of a Savior.
The long life of Adam—930 years—allowed his knowledge to be given to a multitude of people for centuries.
We continue the blessing as we accurately tell the good news,and add our own accounts of God’s faithfulness.
Which stories are you passing along this week?
