Genesis 5

Is one of those glorious genealogy lists. However! Apart from the geek inside me having fun comparing the ages of Noah’s ancestors to see who lived the longest (and it would seem that Methuselah wins at 969 years), genealogies are of course important in the bible, not the least because they eventually lead to the birth of Jesus, fulfilling that important statement God made a couple of chapters back about how satan would strike the heel of Eve’s seed and Eve’s seed would crush the head of satan! (see my post on Genesis 3).
