OT001 Genesis 1 - Malachi 4: Wicked World - Milestones
Well, yeah, you can see a milestone pattern. You could actually borrow the milestones and write a narrative about a small set of characters developing over a short period of time. A family is set up with a rich kingdom. They are taught how to look after it and warned what will happen if they don't. The second generation messes around and intrigues. The third generation goes back to the old ways. The fourth generation messes around and intrigues. The fifth generation agonizes over the emerging pattern but sees hope. The seventh generation splits into two groups. The eighth generation purges itself and settles into steady sensibleness.
Notice how the house of David dominates.
