    Jeremiah 35:19
    Because of this, Jehonadab son of Recab will always have descendants who serve me. I, the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, have spoken!"


    This is the last mention I can find about the decendants of Recab or Recabites.

    Who are they?

    Bible trivia time! I flunked! I had to look them up.

    RECHABITES — the descendants of Rechab through Jonadab or Jehonadab. No, they're not the dyslexic decendants of Rebecca. [​IMG]

    I found this in “The Bible Knowledge Commentary”.
    Easton’s Bible Dictionary adds, “Dr. Wolff (1839) found in Arabia, near Mecca, a tribe claiming to be descendants of Jehonadab; and recently a Bedouin tribe has been found near the Dead Sea who also profess to be descendants of the same Kenite chief.”

    Hope it helps your study.

    Ah-ha! Lifeway Family Bible Series, last Sunday, May the 4th!

    I know, because I taught the lesson, too. It went pretty well!
