    1 Timothy 1 speaks of false teachers who "devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies."

    Jamieson, Fausett & Brown The commentaries of Robert Jamieson, A.R. Fausset & David Brown were originally published in 1871. In accordance with Scripture, we have built carefully on the foundation of others, and have added links to the Blue Letter Bible.

    When I read this verse it always seems to remind me of the movie Braveheart. When back from a battle all the leaders of the various clans want Wallace to recognize "their papers" which, according the the arguments that breaks out, is about proper linage.
