The names in the genesis have meanings that when put together from the bloodline from Adam to Noah tells the Gospel.
In order, the first ten generations of first born sons makes the following statement of a promise and the gospel message.
- 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 – Despairing
- Noah – Comfort and rest
Put those meanings into a complete sentence and you get: Man (is) appointed mortal sorrow,(but) the blessed God shall come down teaching. His death shall bring (the) despairing comfort and rest.
Here’s the Gospel hidden within a genealogy in Genesis!
There is no way that this is by accident. Also there is no way Jewish rabbis contrived to hide a summery of the christian gospel in a genealogy within their own venerated Torah. I believe this shows design by the Holy Spirit in the text. This is also found in the names of the 12 tribes of Israel in Revelation 7.
