Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Genesis 5

Much of my current interest in genealogies came from a breakdown that of the meanings of the names, which I first heard from Chuck Missler. In fact, I was so inspired by what was revealed in the names that I continued to read it over and over again throughout the years. I recently dug up one of my old notebooks from my senior year in high school, and it contained a timeline that I put together, so I figured I’d share it.
