Genesis 36 – Generations

These are  the generations of Esau, whose continuing mission is to make new life and new civilizations, to boldly move to the hill country of Seir.  O.K., so this chapter isn’t really that interesting.  The most notable thing that occurred in this chapter was that Esau (a.k.a. Edom) moved him and his family to the hill country of Seir because the land could not sustain his wealth, cattle, etc. as well as Jacob’s.

Beyond that, it was all, “This is this and that is that.”  He sought to be his own master, such a thing would be greater than all the magic and all the treasures in all the world… or so i hear.  So they all moved to Seir and got busy.  The promise of him being the father of nations is seen fulfilled in this chapter.  God gave and He gave and He just kept on giving!

This was one brute of a chapter to finish!  40+ verses of so-and-so was the father of whoever it is, whoever it was… whatchamacallit, who was the father of chief Martin Brody.  I don’t know how many times i started dozing off, and i had a really hard time keeping track of where i was… thus leading to all kinds of crossing out and redoing sections… not fun.  Well, that’s all i have to say about that.

P.S. There are references to at least 8 movies / TV shows /commercials in this post.  Can you find them all?
