Chick-fil-A Biblical Familiy of the Day

Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy: “We support biblical families.”

Today’s Chick-fil-A Biblical Family of the Day: Abraham and Keturah (Genesis 25:1-6).

Abraham took another wife, whose name was Keturah. She bore him Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak, and Shuah. Jokshan was the father of Sheba and Dedan. The sons of Dedan were Asshurim, Letushim, and Leummim. The sons of Midian were Ephah, Epher, Hanoch, Abida, and Eldaah. All these were the children of Keturah.

Abraham gave all he had to Isaac. But to the sons of his concubines Abraham gave gifts, while he was still living, and he sent them away from his son Isaac, eastwards to the east country.

    The descendents of Midian figure prominently later in the Bible.  Joseph is sold by his brothers to the Mideanites.  Moses marries Zipporah, daughter of Jethro, the priest of Midian. Later, Moses encounters the burning bush in Midean.  There are other references as well.

    Soon afterward, Isaac is thrown in a basement and left to cry his way through progressively more demented and dangerous levels of abominations and evil beings.
