"The Law" Part One: Genesis & Exodus

Do the Math: "Prophecy in a Name"

Methuselah = “(his) death” + “shall bring”

Gen 5:25-31 & 7:11, can you determine when the Flood came in relation to Methuselah’s age in the light of the meaning of his name?

Methuselah - 187 years old (Lamech is born)
Lamech - 182 years old (Noah is born)
So, 369 years have passed…
Noah - 600 years old when Flood comes
Thus, 369 + 600 = 969 years!

The Flood came when Methuselah died – just as his name prophesied.

Pentateuch: Five Books of Moses

Part One : Genesis – Book of Beginnings
Exodus – Birth of the Nation

Part Two: Leviticus – Laws of the Nation
Numbers – Wilderness Wandering
Deuteronomy – Laws Reviewed

GENESIS:

Chapters 1-11
1 – 3 Creation - Chicken or the egg?
4 First Murder

6 – 9 Flood of Noah Ark:
· Matt 24:36-39 as foreshadow of coming in Christ
· 2 Pe 2:5 Noah as preacher of righteousness)
10 Nations
· 70 nations from Noah (only 70 entered Egypt)
11 Tower of Babel: “Bab—El” – “Tower to Heaven”

Chapters 12 – 50
12 – 20 Abraham
· Unconditional Covenant – 15:17 (God does it alone; Abram is asleep)
21 – 26 Isaac – Jacob gets blessing (25) – All is to blame…
· (25:23) Isaac attempted to thwart God’s plan

EXODUS :

Chapters:
1 – 18 The Exodus: the Plagues, the Passover, the Crossing of Red Sea
· Acts 7 = the best “commentary” of OT. (7:17) – “another king” – hetero – not Egyptian – that’s why did not know about Joseph (Ex 1:8)
· 3:2 – Fire = judgment: judged, not consumed; i.e. mercy/grace
· Ten plagues of Egypt – deliberate attack on the gods of Egypt

19 – 24 The Law: The Mosaic Covenant
