Oxford dictionary meaning of genealogical. Of Genealogy; tracing family table showing descent of family or animal species in shape of tree with branches.
Jesus was able to trace his history all the way back to Adam. LUKE.3: 23 to 38
Adam was the first recorded person on earth, GEN.1:27. Adam had 4 sons, Cain who became the worlds first murderer, when he killed Abel,GEN.4:8. We are not concerned with either Cain or Abel. The 3th son of Adam was Seth, GEN.4:25. All genealogy of the Bible is traced from Adam to Noah through Seth. Any number of sons and daughters may have been conceived prior to the trace son being born. All of them continued to have more sons and daughters after the trace son was born. Some of these people lived to be over 900 years old, this has no bearing on the age of the world.
It required 6 God days to construct the universe, which is in our days, is 6,000 years. "But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day" II.PETER.3:8, meaning each day in God's time is 1,000 in man years.
DAY 1 ........ God re-creates heavens and the earth, seperated darkness from light, evening and morning.
DAY 2......... God re-creates ground waters and water for heaven as seperate.
DAY 3......... God re-creates dry land as one mass, provided grass, fruit trees, herbs, after their kind meaning they were also in heaven first.
DAY 4......... God re-creates the stars, sun, moon, and so on.
DAY 5......... God re-creates fish, and water creatures, fowl and birds, again after their kind. The words after their kind most likely means after there former kind in the first world. God creates the first creature, the whale, GEN.1:21.
DAY 6..........God re-crestes all other living creatures, worms and bugs, cattle, sheep, goats, including some dinosaurs, and again after their kind. God create's man and later woman in his own image, GEN.1:27. Total creation time, 6 days or 6000 years. In GEN.2:7 it describes how man was created and in GEN.2:21,22, woman. Notice one other thing, in Verse 19, EVERY beast and fowl was made the same was as Adam, - from the ground. How these animals and man were created originally is unknown, but it is very specific in how it is done this time. It likely implys that the re-creation is somehow different than the first time.
Only TWO objects were created, whales, and man....all the rest were recreations.
DAY 7............God rested for 1day.
Monday, February 19, 2001; The amount of time lived after the first born and total lifespan have been added at the request of a reader. They are not counted in the determining of genealogy of man.
ADAM..............(130 years old) GEN.5:3 - Seth born, after Seth was born Adam lived another 800 years, plus more sons and daughters GEN.5:4. Total lifespan of Adam 930 years, GEN.5:5.
SETH...............(105 years old) GEN.5:6 - Enos born, after Enos was born Seth lived another 870 years, plus more sons and daughters GEN..5:7 Total lifespan of Seth 912 years, GEN.5:8.
ENOS................( 90 years old) GEN.5:9 - Cainan born, Enos continued to live another 815 years, and had more sons and daughters GEN.5:10. Total lifespan 905 years, GEN.5:11.
CAINAN............(70 years old) GEN.5:12 - Mahalaleel born, and Cainan lived another 840 years and more sons and daughters GEN.5:13.Cainan total lifespan was 910 years, GEN.5:14.
MAHALALEEL (65 years old) GEN.5:15 - Jared born, Mahalaleel lived another 830 years and had more son and daughters GEN.5:16. Mahahaheel's lifespan was 895 years, GEN.5:17.
JARED.............(162 years old) GEN.5:18 - Enoch born, Jared lived another 800 years and had more sons and daughters GEN.5:19. Jared's total lifespan was 962 years, GEN.5:20.
ENOCH...........(65 years old) GEN.5:21 - Methuselah born. Enoch lived another 300 years and had more sons and daughters GEN.5:22. Notice that Enoch is the only one to walk with God, meaning he followed in God's ways, GEN.5:22 and 24. Enoch lived a total of 365 years GEN.5:23
METHUSELAH (187 years old) GEN.5:25 - Lamech born, Methuselah lived another 782 years and had more sons and daughters GEN.5:26. Total lifespan of Methuselah was 969 years, GEN.5:27.
LAMECH........(182 years old) GEN.5:28 - Noah born, GEN.5:29. Lemech lived another 595 years and had more sons and daughters GEN.5:30. Lamech lived 777 years in total, Gen.5:31.
NOAH............(500years old) GEN.5:32 - Shem, Ham, Japheth, (triplets) are born. Some scolars believe the population of the world now totaled about 2-1/2 million, the majority of these being giants.
This spans 10 generations, (of people, not years) from Adam to Noah.
God (in the future) shortens mans life span to 120 years in GEN.6:3 because of the wickedness and evil in the land. This shortening doesn't happen immediately, but over the next several generations you can see that it does happen. "The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence". GEN.6:11. "And God said to Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth". GEN.6:12. The people are violent and corrupt and God is about to destroy them. The population probably numbered well over 1 million. Noah is instructed to build an ack. Notice the language in GEN.7:11, it is important. "In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened". Two things, it took Noah and his 3 sons 100 years to build the ark, and if we read the date according to our calender it was the 2nd day of February. Remember this date.
We now move onto when they disembarked from the ark. "And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, was the earth dry". GEN.8:14 To When? The 27th day of February of the following year. So they were on the ark roughly 1 year, 3 1/2 weeks, not 40 days. Also in verse 13 it states Noah is 601 years old, so Noah was 1 year on the ark. Compare GEN.8:14 against GEN.7:11
130 + 105 + 90 + 70 + 65 + 162 + 65 + 187 + 182 + 500 = 1556 years + 100 to build ark = 1,656 years
In GEN.9:1 God blesses Noah and his sons and tells them to be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth. In GEN.9:20 Noah has more children. From Noah's son Ham, descended the giants and most of the Arab nations and some other nations. See my article on the Giants. Japheth descendants, - Gomer (Germany), Magog (Russia), Italy and many other countries. Generation can not be counted through either Ham or Japheth. The generation must be counted through Shem. Through these 4 people, every nation, every colour, and every tongue on earth today descended.
They all had more sons and daughters unless otherwise stated.
SHEM (2 years after flood) - GEN.11:10 (Shem actually 100 yr.) - Arphaxad was born.
ARPHAXAD (35 years old) - GEN.11:12 - Salah was born
SALAH (30 years old) - GEN.11:14 - Eber was born
EBER (34 years old) - GEN.11:16 - Peleg was born
PELEG (30 years old) - GEN.11:18 - Reu was born
REU (32 years old) - GEN.11:20 - Serug was born
SERUG (30 years old) - GEN.11:22 - Nahor was born
NAHOR (29 years old) - GEN.11:24 - Terah was born
TERAH (70 years old) - GEN.11:26 - Abram, Nahor, and Haran were born.
ABRAM (99 years old) - When God changed his name to ABRAHAM. GEN.17:5
Again we have 10 generations covering a total of 391 years. We need to go no further through the Bible to figure out how long man has existed or the universe. Almost everyone is in agreement that from Abraham until the birth of Jesus was 4,000 years. And from Jesus until now is 1999 years. Take off 1 year because they did not count a year "0". A better date is given in The Birth of Jesus and Christmas. This totals up for man to-
1656 + 2 + 35 + 30 + 34+ 30 + 32 + 30 + 29 + 70 + 99 = 2047 years + 4000 + 2000 - 1 = 8047 years.
It must be stated that these are Hebrew years, which are 12 months of 30 days or 360 days to the year. They have a complicated method of partly fixing this problem. I don't understand if fully so I will not try to fix a true date. In any case mans life span or better stated the age of the earth as we know it is less than 9000 years. (mans time on earth, add to that 6,000 years of creation) Age of the earth from GEN.1:3 until now is 8047 years.
The Jews have been working on the Hebrew calender for some time now. The date from Abraham until now was out about 140 years. They have announced that the error for the most part is now in agreement with our calender. Taking into account that our calender is also out by anything from 1 to 8 years they agree. From Abramham until the birth of Jesus is 4000 years, and from Jesus until now is 1998 years (actually 1997 years). Our actual date is somewhere between 1992 and 1998.
