Large chart lineage of Abraham

God changed Abram's name, when he was ninety-nine years old, to Abraham because of the blessings he would bestow on him (Genesis 17:1 - 5). Sarai, the wife of Abraham, also had her name changed to Sarah since she would ultimately become the mother of MANY nations and kings (Genesis 17:15 - 16)..

Because his wife was barren Issac prayed to God that Rebekah would be healed. God heard him and granted his request. It would be an answer that would change the course of human history.

She was going to have twins, and before they were born, they struggled against each other in her womb (this struggle would continue for many, many years to come) . . . The first one was reddish . . . (he was given the name Esau, which can also mean 'red stew.' - He became the father of a tribe of people known as the Edomites) The second one was born holding on tightly to the heel of Esau . . . . (this child was given the name of Jacob, a name God would later change to Israel) (Genesis 25:22, 25 - 26)

When Rachel, Jacob's favorite wife, realized she could not have children she DEMANDED that Jacob give her some! Jacob, of course, responded that he did not have the power to grant her request. Rachel then decided to give him her servant girl Bilhah in order to create a family through her. Bilhah soon gave birth to sons named Dan and Naphtali (Genesis 30:1 - 8).

When Leah, another of Jacob's wives, believed she could no longer have children she gave her husband a slave woman named Zilpah through which she could have a family. The maidservant Zilpah produced sons of Israel named Gad and Asher. (Genesis 30:9 - 13)

Cities of the patriarchs

It as Abraham who named the city of Beersheba (Genesis 21:31). Jacob renamed the city of Luz to Bethel (Genesis 28:19). He also renamed the place where he and Laban agreed to peacefully separate to Galeed (Genesis 31:47). Jacob also named the cities of Mahanaim (32:2), Peniel (32:30) and Succoth (33:17).
