Let’s continue with the lineage from Adam and Eve to Noah.

Adam and Eve gave birth to Cain and Able.  Cain killed Able.  Adam and Eve had another son named Seth who
followed the Lord.  From Seth to Kenan to Mahalalel to Jared to Enoch to Methuselah to Noah.

God instructed Noah to build an ark.  Noah with his wife, their three sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth, and their wives
were to live in the ark during the great flood.  Animals of every kind came to the ark.  The remaining animals and
the remaining people were killed in the flood.

After the flood in Genesis 9:1 God told Noah to be fruitful and fill the earth.

As with Adam and Eve, Noah’s grandchildren had sexual relations with each other to repopulate the
earth.  As we read in Old Testament 4, in the book of Leviticus, God put and end to sexual relations
between family members.

Next week, the lineage continues from Noah’s son Shem to Abraham.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
