Adam to Jesus


The Generation Chart

How many generations from Adam to Jesus? The answer begins in Genesis chapter five where the first ten generations are found, ending with Noah#10.

First Ten generations

First Ten generations

Adam – Seth – Enos – Cainan – Mahalaleel – Jared – Enoch – Methuselah – Lamech – Noah.

“Noah was a just man and PERFECT(?) in his generations…” Gen6:9. – He was tenth, so this a clue to the three groups of ten generations leading to David.
We know we’re counting these first ten generations correctly because it agrees with verse 14 of Jude (calling Enoch the 7th from Adam), as well as Genesis 5 and 1Chronicles.

The next ten generation list is found in 1Chr1:24, beginning with son Shem and ending with Abram#20. The 3rd list of ten generations is at the conclusion of the Book of Ruth, where we find that three generations have been ‘skipped’ (Isaac, Jacob, Judah), meaning Boaz was generation #30 and David was #33. This “precept” from the O.T. leads us to the conclusion of Jesus being generation #66.
Yes, just like the Books in the Bible, because Jesus really is the Word, the Son, the Seed, etc.

Of Noah’s 3 sons, it’s Shem who leads the way to Abraham, and of Judah’s 5 sons, it’s Pharez who leads the way to David. From David’s 20 sons we must decide which one leads to Jesus.

The 3 periods of 14 generations, Matthew 1:17, inspire some to a partial arithmetic solution of forty-two (42) generations, but fails to consider the skipped names in Solomon’s column or the nineteen names leading to Abraham. It is this reckoning which leads to a new, more significant, solution of 2 periods of 33 names instead of the 3 periods of 14.

Sixty-six books in the Bible (no more, no less) and sixty-six generations from Adam to Jesus

But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law..” Gal 4:4.

All the generations from Adam to David are thirty-three (33), and all the generations from Solomon to Jesus are 33. [Compare the symmetry logic with Matthew 1:17].

Last Day Prophecy by Jesus – Mathew 24 chapter.


[1] And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to Him to show Him the buildings of the temple.
[2] And Jesus said unto them, See You not all these things? I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
[3] And as He sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto Him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy(YOUR) coming, and of the end of the world?
[4] And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take pay attention that no man deceive(mislead) you.
[6] And ye(you) shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye(you) be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
[7] For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, underwater explosions(tsunami) in divers places.
[8] All these are the beginning of sorrows.
[9] Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted(sufferring), and shall kill you: and ye(you) shall be hated of all nations for my name’s(JESUS) sake.
[10] And then shall many be offended(cause to sin), and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
[11] And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive(mislead) many.
[12] And because iniquity(wickedness) shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold(no love between husband and wife,within family,neighborhoods,outside family,society).
[13] But the one who endure unto the end, the same one shall be saved.(Tribulations may come but the one who endure and retains in Christ in all the sufferings, will be enter into heaven after death.)
[14] And this gospel of the kingdom(Jesus) shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.(BLESSING TV(ALL OVER INDIA – telecasting in HINDI; Tamil nadu – Tamil,Andra pradesh – Telugu ) SALVATION TV; God channel etc…)
[21] For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
[23] Then if any man shall say unto you, Look, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
[24] For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show you great signs and wonders; don’t believe, they shall even deceive the very elect(choosed people of Christ).
[25] Behold, I have told you before.
[26] Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he(Jesus) is in the desert; don’t go forth(further): behold, he(Jesus) is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
[27] For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be(Jesus).
[28] For wheresoever the carcase(the dead body) is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
[29] Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
[30] And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man(JESUS) in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth(those who not believed in Jesus) mourn(express deep regret for), and they shall see the Son of man(JESUS) coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
[31] And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet(Ekkaalam muzhagum in Tamil), and they shall gather together his elect(choosened people who accepted JESUS as their own GOD and LIVE THE WAY AS HE(Jesus) TAUGHT– this is more important) from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
[32] Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
[33] So likewise ye, when ye(you) shall see all these things, know that HE(JESUS II COMMING though its called as Secret Arrival) is near, even at the doors.
[35] Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
[36] But no one know that day and time of my II Coming, neither me nor the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
[37] But as the days of Noah were(I time the world destroyed by God by 40 days of continous raining), so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
[38] For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark,
[39] And the people don’t knew until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
[40] Then shall two persons be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
[41] Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
[42] Watch therefore: for ye(you) know not what hour your Lord do come.
[43] But know this, that if the Goodman of the house had known at what time the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
[44] Therefore be ye(you) also ready: for in such an hour as you think not the Son of man(JESUS) cometh.

Heaven and Earth shall pass, but the words of CHRIST AND the BIBLE will never GOES WRONG.
