Let's talk about Adam's family. No, not The Addam's Family with Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, and Lurch. But, Adam, as in Adam and Eve. A very truncated discussion of Adam's progeny is found in Genesis Chapter 5, starting, obviously, with Adam and ending with Noah. Mainly, it is the godly side of Adam's lineage that is in view, as opposed to the ungodly side found in Genesis Chapter 4. The account extends for about 8,000 years and discusses the main characters that will ultimate show up in the Messianic genealogy found in Luke Chapter 3. One recurring theme is pointed out in Genesis 5 and it is this: "and he died." Although all the characters mentioned are fairly prolific in producing children and living extraordinarily long lives, each character dies. That is, except one, who is Enoch. Enoch "walks with God," as a fire and brimstone preacher, and manages to escape God, for God "took him." Other than that, every "father" dies, which hearkens back to God's warning that if Adam chose to disobey God in eating of the fruit of the tree of good and evil, "dying you shall surely die." That said, and even though Genesis 5 records the godly lineage of Adam, sin is still having a dire effect upon humanity and Noah is looked forward to as a reprieve. That "rest" will come, although probably not in the way hoped, for later things will get so bad on earth, morally, spiritually, and civilly, that God will have to destroy the human population, minus eight individuals.
