The Incredible Hidden Message In The Book Of Genesis

The Book Of Genesis Contains Many Unbelievable Secrets

The hidden message recently found in the book of Genesis simply reminds and confirms to us that Bible study is an always-worthy endeavor. Even though these texts can be more than 3,000 years old, and they’ve been studied extensively by professionals and regular lovers of Christ equally, we’re still finding new things and interesting messages that God is trying to send down to us through Its words.

The hidden message in the book of Genesis 5 can be found by paying close attention to the names in the stories being told. The best way to understand this is to break it down simply, and to translate the Hebrew names used into their English meanings. Since we speak English, this is how we can understand the true meaning of God’s message, and this breakdown works the same as you translate the Hebrew names into native tongues of French, Spanish, Italian, or any world tongue.

The translation breakdown of the names in the book of Genesis chapter 5 goes as follows:

  • Adam = Man
  • Seth = Appointed
  • Enosh = Mortal
  • Kenan = Sorrow
  • Mahalalel = The Blessed God
  • Jared = Shall Come Down
  • Enoch = Teaching
  • Methuselah = His Death Shall Bring
  • Lamech = The Despairing
  • Noah = Rest and Comfort

So, what does this leave us with? When you put all of these meanings together, you get “Man appointed mortal sorrow, The Blessed God shall come down teaching that his death shall bring the despairing rest and comfort.”


Now, doesn’t that message sound like a story we’ve heard before? In one curious passage found in the Gospel of John, Jesus makes a comment to Jewish leaders as they were questioning him. The passage states “For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about me.” Now, the books of Moses are filled with prophecies referencing the coming of the Messiah, but could he have made his message a bit more explicit, albeit hidden, in Genesis in reference to Jesus? Could Jesus be referencing the message when he tells the Jewish leaders that Moses had written of him before?

The Bible is a very complex work, and a work that continues to prove that after all these years there is always something new to find. The hidden message in Genesis 5, and how it relates to later pieces of scripture, is such a wonderful example of how the Bible continues to inspire and surprise us even today.
