Chronicles thought process

sketch, tree, stream, roots

1 Chronicles 3:16 And the sons of Johoikamim: Jeconiah his son, Zedekiah his son.

It's a good habit in reading the Bible from cover to cover. Although I am sometimes tempted to skip over the genealogies....All these names, what do they have to say?

But I read an interesting article by J.C. Ryle why genealogies are important:
  • God always keeps His Word.
  • The sinfulness and corruption of human nature. 
  • How great is the mercy and compassion of our Lord Jesus Christ.
For these interested in the full article:

This verse is about 3 descendants of David. I have read that the Davidic dynasty was very impressive indeed: the crown passed regularly from father to son in an unbroken string extending though 18 generations, covering almost 400 years.

From his family, as concerning the flesh, Christ came.

As for this piece I was thinking about a tree, roots, fruit/leaves, names, continuity, water, Psalm 1.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

It needs to represent all the above thoughts, so I have sketched a tree with lots of roots a waterstream, a leafy crown, shoots etc.

I am looking forward to working on it!!

Next time more about techniques.

Inspiration from my dutch friend AnneMinke:

And loads of tree inspiration here in Auckland :)
