Genesis 5: The Gospel Message Is Contained In The Genealogy From Adam To Noah

Did you know that the gospel message is contained in the genealogy from Adam to Noah that we find in Genesis chapter 5?  When we learned what you are about to read it blew our minds.

If you have a Bible, turn to Genesis chapter 5.  That chapter contains a genealogical list that goes from Adam all the way to Noah.  When you take the meanings of all of those names and put them together something amazing happens.

To learn more about where the meanings of the names come from, check out this excellent article by Chuck Missler.  The Hebrew and the English for each of the names is reproduced below....

Hebrew         English

Adam             Man
Seth               Appointed
Enosh            Mortal
Kenan           Sorrow
Mahalalel      The Blessed God
Jared            Shall come down
Enoch           Teaching
Methuselah   His death shall bring
Lamech        The despairing
Noah            Rest, or comfort

So when you put it all together into one sentence, it says this:

"Man is appointed mortal sorrow, but the Blessed God shall come down teaching, and His death shall bring the despairing comfort."

That is the message of the gospel right there!

The following is a video clip of Chuck Missler explaining this amazing phenomenon....



Isn't that amazing?

But the truth is that there is stuff like that all throughout the Bible.

What other book in the world can you say that about?

Perhaps it is time to learn more.

Lastly, we want to ask you a question.

If you died tonight, would you go to heaven?

If you are not 100 percent certain of the answer to that question, then we very much urge you to read the following article: What Does The Bible Say About Salvation?
