Hidden Gospel of Jesus in Genesis
by Greg West
I was reading in Genesis a while back, and as I came across the genealogy from Adam to Noah in Genesis chapter five, I remembered a bit I’d read about a hidden gospel there. If you take the meanings of the root words of the names in the genealogy: Adam, Seth, Enosh, Kenan, Mahalalel, Jared, Enoch, Methuselah, Lamech, and Noah, here is what you get:
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 – Rest (or comfort)
So, let’s put that all together, throw in just a few conjunctions to make a complete sentence and see what we get:
Man (is) appointed mortal sorrow; (but) the Blessed God shall come down teaching (that) His death shall bring (the) despairing rest.
Pretty amazing, huh? This was written more than 3,4000 years ago or about 1400 years before Christ. Hmmm – I wonder how Moses knew to put that in there?!?
Seriously though, this is just one example of many of how God proves to us the validity of the Bible. Who else could orchestrate a collection of 66 separate books written by approx 40 different authors from various geographical locations, over a period of about 1,500 to 2,000 years into one cohesive, interwoven story from beginning to end?
Something to think about…
