I find the genealogy of Adam to Noah fascinating and once more, it brings up more questions than answers.
How did they age? Obviously their 100 must have looked a lot different than someone now being 100. Noah fathered his sons after he was 500. 500!!
How long did they wait to get married?
How old was Abel when he was murdered by his brother?
How long did Eve live?
How close together did all these relatives live?
Did Adam tell them all about the Garden of Eden and what he had learned from their failure to trust God?
There are going to be so many fascinating stories to hear when we get to heaven!
In the NT, we see the utter callousness of King Herod as he orders the deaths of all males under the age of two in the Bethlehem area. I cannot even imagine the horror and sorrow of that city and the all the many families affected by this man's evil decree!
So thankful that God will ultimately bring justice to every situation.
And also thankful for His mercy in granting me the forgiveness I don't deserve any more than Herod would've had he repented. His grace truly is amazing.
