The First Man To Miss Death by Jerry Vines

Jerry Vines

This fifth chapter of Genesis is a very important chapter for several
rea%ons-n 0-e of the reasons for its importance is th~e fact th-at it giv-es us
the line from Adam through Seth down through Noah. You will notice in the
first verse of the chapter, it mentions Adam. If you will look to the last
verse of the chapter-verse 32, you will notice that it mentions the name
No"aia. S-o-, fro-m Ad-ai down th-rough Seth to Noah, we have all of the
generations of the Godly line of Seth given to us in this particular
chapter. That's important because it ties together, genealogically, Adam
all the way through to Noah. There is a second reason why this chapter is
important. It is because of the title given to the chapter in the first
verse. Look at that first verse and notice what it says.
This is the book of the generations of Adam...
That's an unusual statement. It's an out of the ordinary statement. Several
times we are told about the generations of different men, but it is an
unusual thing for it to say, the book of the generations of Adam. There is
only one place in all of the rest of the Bible where a similar statement
occurs. Keep your place in Genesis 5 and move over to the New Testament to
the book of Matthew, the 1st chapter and the 1st verse. Matthew 1:1-
The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the Son of
David, the Son of Abraham.
Notice the two statements there. In the book of Genesis, the first book of
the Old Testament, it says, "the book of the generations of Adam." The
first sentence of the New Testament says, "The book of the generation of
Jesus Christ." What these two statements do for us is summarize the Old
Testament and the New Testament. The Old Testament is the book that has to
do with the Adam family. The New Testament is the book that has to do with
the Jesus family. The Adam family is a record of failure and death. The
Jesus family is a record of victory and life ...
