    If you would please can someone let me know how many children did Adam and Eve have?
  • Nathaniel
    Adam and Eve had 3 sons
  • Mishael
    Read the genealogies in Genesis and other books. Only the sons are named; not the daughters.
  • Jesse
    The Bible does not tell us how many. We know of at least three, Cain, Abel, and Seth. Genesis 5:4 tells us that there were many other sons and daughters, but we don't know how many. There were probably quite a few, as they lived a lot longer back then and childbearing years lasted way longer than today.
  • Josie Garibay
    Thank you both for replying on Luke 3, God Bless You always.
  • ANTHONY WESLEY for verse 37
    if adam was GOD'S son then what was eve ?
  • Hello,

    Adam isn't God's son. Adam was created from dust, and Eve from the rib of Adam.
  • Bob Hilt for verse 37
    reply to Adam on Adam being a son of God is proven in

    Luke 3:38 Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.

    after all who was Adam's mother or his Father for that Matter?
  • 'Son of God' is a metaphor in this verse as Adam wasn't born, he was created by God, Genesis 2:7. You can say God is metaphorically his father as he has no other father or mother. The actual son of God is Jesus who is also God. John 14:11
  • Why was Nathan instead of Solomon written as the son of David?
  • David
    Regarding the genealogy. With two records - Luke is obviously copying from another source - and I submit that the Genesis account written about Moses' time, one assumes is also from a much older source. Humans can make copying mistakes. Also note that the language of Jesus' time was Aramaic, not Hebrew. So spellings and pronunciation of names were likely different.
  • Marlo
    Can someone clear up the genealogical reckoning in verse 36 (Which was the son of Cainan, which was the son of Arphaxad, which was the son of Sem...) From Genesis 10:22 (22 The sons of Shem were Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram. 24 And soothly Arphaxad begat Salah, of whom Eber was born.). Here in Luke there is an extra lineage given between Salah and Arphaxad.
  • Stephen B
    Imagine if a God fearing Bible believing preacher got in the pulpit and began with, 'You generation of vipers'!! Today's church goers have itching ears and this what a lot of them need. Get rid of Bingo, yard sales, cake sales, etc. Let a godly man preach repentance and salvation and the Holy Spirit will convict sinners! Let him that hath ears to hear, hear!
  • A disciple
    servant; Jesus and John the Baptist weren't little Orthodox Jews going to schule together; and decided to study Torah and go into politics! Jesus knew He was the Son of God ALL His life. And John was filled with the Holy Spirit from his mother's womb, and also knew that he was to be the forerunner and announcer of the Anointed the Saviour.
  • Servant of God
    Don't you think that these two grew up together,went to the same school, shared their knowledge and maybe had dreams of politically freeing Israel from Roman tyranny. John did no miracle but taught a generic doctrine, but Jesus went further and studied the Torah at the feet of the Doctors and God gave him wisdom greater than John's. They probably were both ascetic in their journey as aspirants.
  • A disciple
    "And now also THE AXE IS LAID UNTO THE ROOT of the trees: every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire." All that is not planted by God shall be rooted up. What is your life rooted in? Into what are you growing up? What are the fruits you bear? Will God find you in His image and likeness, in faith hope and love in Christ? Or worthless and bad?
  • Irene123
    It's not the way of our Lord to use names for people such as - crazy, idiot, stupid, etc'; all that does is harden a heart and cause the accused one to rail back and that also is offensive to God's will for us. Ye shall love the Lord your God with ALL your heart ... soul and mind; and ye shall love thy neighbor as thyself; "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do".
  • Kal
    No need for so many words. Just call them 'vipers' as our King did.
  • Nimrod
    Pets receive Salvation? You must be crazy!!
    Romans 8:28 Only those souls who God knew before Creation are destined for Salvation!
    A soul must believe to be saved. A soul will not believe unless God births that soul from above [Reborn] to believe. And the only souls that God rebirths to believe are the souls which He knew before Creation.
  • Frank
    Of course pets receive salvation. They didn't sin. Have you not read in revelations where the wolf lay down with the lamb in heaven. And other animals also as the lion and even the viper.
  • Adam
    Where in the Bible does it say pets go to heaven because they don't sin? Are unadopted pets from the pound going to heaven too? What about farm animals and livestock? Wolves, bears, lions? Mosquitoes, flies, wasps, rattlesnakes? Ecoli bacteria, jellyfish, they haven't sinned either and some may love them very much. House plants too? wedding rings? Classic car from my grandma? Jewelry? Money? Treasures in heaven?
  • A disciple
    The WHOLE CREATION groans and toils, waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God. The whole world is corrupted because of man; and all wait to see the completed salvation of the world, in the coming of Jesus Christ, and His eternal kingdom. Eccl. 3:21 Who knows the spirit of man that goes upward, and the spirit of the beast that goes downward to the earth? God's plan is to restore all things.
  • Irene123
    To Karl on Luke 3 - Genesis 2:7; God breathed into man and he became a living soul. He didn't do this with the animals. They have no soul. They don't go to heaven or hell. God gave us animals for food AND for comfort. When we kill an animal on the road - we are not murderers, it's an accident. ONLY if we hurt a SOUL are we accountable.
  • DOTTIE
    WHEN HE TOLD THE SOLIDERS TO BE CONTENT WITH THERE WAGES..I WAS ALWAYS CONTENT WITH MY WAGES KNOWING THAT GOD WAS FULLY IN CONTROL OF ME AND WHAT I WAS GIVEN. IF I HAD A PROBLEM PRAYER TO THE LORD SOLVED IT. GOD IS GOOD EVERY DAY I RETIRED AT SIXTY BECAUSE GOD CALLED ME OUT OF WORK I RETIRED WITH 1000 A MONTH I HAVE BEEN RETIRED FOR SIX YEARS AND GOD HAS DONE MIRACLES FOR ME EVERY DAY
  • Norm
    Marilynn, be of good comfort! The gospel of God cometh only from God, our Father which art in heaven. Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: Father, the hour is come glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. The mercy of man is toward his neighbour but the mercy of the Lord is upon all flesh: he reproveth, and nurtureth, and teacheth and bringeth again, as a shepherd his flock. Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation, And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.
  • Norm
    All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. For God made not death: neither hath he pleasure in the destruction of the living. For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
  • Karl
    to Marilynn - will our pets see salvation? Yes!, as we hope for our own redemption, we must also show our own humble grace to those animals/souls under our dominion. As JESUS said to his disciples, "freely ye have received, freely give". If you would deny salvation to another, how could you hope for our own?
  • Irene123
    To Marilyn on 'pets - We lost a Jack Russell almost 3 yrs. ago. Cancer of the mouth. He was 12. A 'long-legged' terrier. He would stand outside and BARK at the thunder 'n lightening. But - we know he didn't go to heaven, Genesis 2:7. God SPOKE animals into existence; He 'got down' and with His 'hands' created man from the dust; animals for us, but man for Himself.
  • Marilynn for verse 6
    All flesh, meaning not just man's but all living things. Is this telling us even our beloved pets will see salvation? I think so!
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    Paradox. John was NOT refering to our Blessed Lord and Savior Christ Yeshua Jesus but, the Least in the Kingdom God a.k.a. the Greater than John. The reason He is Greater than John is because our Blessed Lord and Savior is Truly Glorfied and seated at Gods Right Hand now and forever more. God's chosen elect Zion will be Baptised with the Fire of the Holy Ghost Amen. It is ALL THERE AND lOGICAL.
