Of genealogies

Today's sermon at church was from Exodus 6, a passage featuring the genealogies of Moses and Aaron (and some others). In the course of an afternoon punctuated by Nandos and cinema with brothers from church, I found my thoughts drifting on what we're to do with these lists of names which seem to be the least relevant portions of scripture to the casual reader?

I wonder, what profit might there be if we begin with the premise that this is deliberately written literature for a purpose, and not a jumble of random material to wade through? More reflections during the week...
