Biblical Kinship - Ben Jester, Rick Grannis, et al.


In 1992 White and Jorion (pubs) published an analysis of the Biblical Patriarchs that offered some new findings and interpretations about endogamy and succession. Rick Grannis scanned a computerized Biblical text to retrieve all mentions of biblical genealogy and derived constructed a p-graphic dataset which we then analyzed. Ben Jester went back to Arabic sources to get an alternate and more comprehensive genealogy. Rick and Ben expect to publish some of their findings shortly.
