I have a friend name Iscah. I thought it’s a made up name, but yesterday I read it in the Bible.
Iscah is the daughter of Haran; Haran is Abraham’s brother, that makes Iscah Abraham’s niece. (Gen 11:29). Her brother is Lot, who traveled to Canaan with Abraham. Though she is only mentioned one time in the Bible, Iscah’s close relationship to the well-known father Abraham makes her a pretty famous as well. (Some Jewish traditions says Iscah is called Sarai, which makes her Abraham’s wife.)
I’ve been following a daily Bible reading plan from the YouVersion app on my iPhone. It’s a great way to keep track of my Bible reading.
Finding Iscah in the Bible is only one of a lot of good stuff I learn from the Bible. Most importantly I learn about God who reveals Himself through the Bible.
P.S. Wikipedia says Iscah is the Hebrew for Jessica.
