Are You There, Adam?

I’ve been preparing for my next sermon series on the opening chapters of Genesis for a couple of months now. I usually start these things slowly, skimming books I’ve read before and reading through one or two of those books that present the different viewpoints on a particular issue (in this case the interpretation of Genesis 1-2). By now my mind is almost equally divided between the final weeks of 1 Peter and the Genesis series.

Shem's Descendants

10 These are the generations of Shem. When Shem was 100 years old, he fathered Arpachshad two years after the flood. 11 And Shem lived after he fathered Arpachshad 500 years and had other sons and daughters.

12 When Arpachshad had lived 35 years, he fathered Shelah. 13 And Arpachshad lived after he fathered Shelah 403 years and had other sons and daughters.

14 When Shelah had lived 30 years, he fathered Eber. 15 And Shelah lived after he fathered Eber 403 years and had other sons and daughters.
