Biblical Wall Charts: The Family Tree from Adam to Jesus

by JoHarrington

There are a lot of family trees in the Bible. Buying wall-charts or other teaching aids will help you chart an ancestral path from Jesus back to Adam.

1 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;

2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.

3 And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, and after his image; and called his name Seth:

4 And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters...

Genesis Chapter 5

Greeting - Elizabeth meets her cousin Mary, who is pregnant with Christ

From Adam to Jesus: Genealogy in the Bible

Can you name from Abraham and Isaac, through David and Solomon to Jesus Christ himself?

Genealogy was important to the Christian families living in the Holy Land. Genesis 4-11 is testimony to that; not to mention the ancestral bloodline of Jesus Christ, given in both Matthew chapter one and Luke chapter three.

Yet when it comes to Bible Studies, these lists of names and dates can appear like nothing more than a series of 'begats'. Some assistance is clearly needed.

Fortunately, some creative folk have come up with ways to display these sacred names. These wall-charts are so easy to understand that even the youngest member of your family will be able to follow them.

Moreover, learning about the Biblical family tree could be a way to unlock an interest in History per se, as well as the key to discovering your own family's fascinating past.

Adam and Eve Family Tree Poster

Over 1,110 names are known between the first parents and their distant descendant, Jesus Christ. This wall-chart includes them all.

Each name is displayed with a Biblical chapter and verse, as it is meant to be used to bring alive Bible studies.

At 38 x 25" and laminated, many people frame this for their homes. It colorfully highlights the different lines, amongst them the genealogies of Mary and the Twelve Tribes of Israel.

Jesus Family Tree Poster

Printed in the Holy Land, this wall-poster uses classical art illustrations to help put faces to sacred names.

The art includes works by luminaries like Albrecht Durer, Houbart Flink and El Greco.

As befits a poster depicting genealogy, it is designed as a literal family tree. Viewers will be able to follow the branches to learn the ancestry of Jesus Christ, right down to Adam and Eve at the roots.

While not as detailed as some, this wall-chart still includes over 1000 names, along with many scripture references.

It stands at 27"x38" and could also be framed to help with your Bible Studies.

Family Bible Designed to Record Genealogy

New International Version Family Bible

This leather-bound heirloom has been created with family historians in mind.

If you're stuck for a wedding gift for a Christian bride and groom, then this could be the perfect choice.

It is a Bible, with the holy words translated according to the New International standard, which would naturally be welcome in their home. There are extra chapters, providing study guides and contextual information about scenes described in the narrative.

It's filled with illustrations too. Thirty-two pages are devoted to full-color images, evenly divided between relevant maps and pictures bringing the scriptures to life.

What sets this Bible apart, and makes it a great gift idea, are the pages bound within dedicated to recording family history. Taking inspiration from the grass-roots records of the past, this includes sections for noting every birth, death, marriage and other important milestones, as they happen.

The point is that it can passed on as an heirloom through the generations. Your gift to them will be their gift to their descendants.

I'm glad that you liked them. I thought they looked pretty nifty myself too; and I can't stress enough how useful something like that Bible, with its family history pages, would be to a future genealogist. As an historian myself, I've got some of my best leads out of what's written on the fly-sheets of family Bibles.
