 In today's society, 'Hidden Codes' in the Bible have become a reason to reject the whole Bible. Most of the 'Hidden Codes' are from those who are trying to predict the future and they go through extreme measures to show the codes exist. However, it has been said that if one takes a copy of the "Mobby Dick" and run it through the same procedures, the same type codes found will be similar to those found in the Bible.  The old computer adage is:"If you torture the data long enough, it will say anything."

We at 'Sharing God's Word' believe there are hidden codes in the Bible and will present some of them in this article with the proof of existance. We further believe that while these codes are predictive of future events happening  within the scriptures, they also help prove GOD's fingerprint is prevalent throughout the Holy Bible.

There are many disputed 'name meanings' by reputable scholars . As the bible only transliterates the Hebrew proper names to approximate the way they were pronounced. It is hard even with a good lexicon to come up with what the name really means. (1)  Good but somewhat disputed results still abound with searching the meaning of the ROOT word.

Genesis 5:1.. "This is the book of the generations of 'Adam'. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;" gives us the name of Adam (from the root adomah) meaning 'man'. [emphasis added]

Genesis 5:4 Adam begat Seth which means 'appointed'. In Gen 4:25..(KJV) "And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath 'appointed' me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.." Gen 5:7  [emphasis added]
Genesis 5:7... Seith begat Enosh which means 'mortal''

Genesis 5:9..Enosh begat Cainan [Enosh’s son was named Kenan, from which can mean “sorrow,” dirge,” or “elegy.” (The precise denotation is somewhat elusive; some study aids unfortunately presume an Aramaic root synonymous with “Cainan.”) Balaam, looking down from the heights of Moab, employed a pun upon the name of the Kenites when he prophesied their destruction.[2,3]

Genesis 5:12..Kenan begat Mahalaleel [from mahalal,] Kenan’s son was Mahalalel, from mahalal, which means “blessed” or “praise”; and El, the name for God. Thus, Mahalalel means “the Blessed God.” Often Hebrew names included El, the name of God, as Dani-el, “God is my Judge,” Nathani-el, “Gift of God,” etc.[4]

Genesis 5:15..Mahalaleel begat Jared  from the verb yaradh, meaning “shall come down.”

Genesis 5:18..Jared begat Enoch meaning 'which means “teaching,” or “commencement.”

Genesis 5:21..Enoch begat Methuselah: Enoch named his son to reflect this prophecy. The name Methuselah comes from two roots: muth, a root that means “death”[5] ; and from shalach, which means “to bring,” or “to send forth.” Thus, the name Methuselah signifies, “his death shall bring.”[6] And, indeed, in the year that Methuselah died, the flood came. Methuselah was 187 when he had Lamech, and lived 782 years more. Lamech had Noah when he was 182.[7] The Flood came in Noah’s 600th year.[8] 187 + 182 + 600 = 969, Methuselah’s age when he died.[9]

Genesis 5:25..Methuselah begat Lamech.  a root still evident today in our own English word, “lament” or “lamentation.” Lamech suggests “despairing.”.[10])

Genesis 5:28-29..Lamech begat Noah. which is derived from nacham , “to bring relief” or “comfort,” as Lamech himself explains.[11]

If one places all these meaning together they state:

Man (is) appointed mortal sorrow (but) the blessed GOD shall come down teaching his death shall bring (the) despairing, comfort (and) relief"  (emphasis added)

Would it be possible for Moses to sit around the campfire and try to figure out how to make Genesis tell us about the Christ to come....Ludicrous right!

God gave the first five books of the Bible (Torah) to Moses of things that happened 2500 years prior.[12]. ONLY ONE AUTHOR would know the names, would know the coming of Jesus Christ and what His objective would be. That one author is GOD making the Bible an integrated narrative from the beginning to the end.[13]

God Knew What He Was Doing When He Gave Jesus Two Family Trees

How to sort out the many disparities between the genealogies of Matthew and Luke.

Problems in Scripture work like speed bumps: They may be frustrating, and they can do damage to the unwary, but they effectively slow us down and focus our attention. Tensions provoke thought. Apparent contradictions force us to wrestle with texts in greater detail. When God inspired them, he knew what he was doing.

Studying the Gospels, we immediately encounter the problem of major differences between the genealogies of Jesus in Matthew and Luke. Matthew 1 lists 42 generations going back to Abraham; Luke 3 has 77 generations going back to Adam. Of the dozens of names between David and Jesus, only five appear on both lists. Worse, Jesus has two different paternal grandfathers: Jacob (Matt. 1:16) and Heli (Luke 3:23).

Efforts to sort out the disparities often focus on Matthew’s side, partly because his genealogy looks more theologically motivated—the numerous gaps, the women who feature, the three groups of 14, and so on. Luke, we assume, is giving “just the facts,” while Matthew is fiddling with them to make a point. But this demeans both the historian in Matthew and the theologian in Luke. I think Luke’s genealogy has a theological agenda just as strong as Matthew’s, if not more so.

Consider how he lists 77 generations from Adam to Christ. That number points to the Sabbath. It reminds us of the 77-fold vengeance of Lamech (Gen. 4:24) and the 77-fold forgiveness of Jesus (Matt. 18:22). It evokes the Jubilee year (Lev. 25:8–55), observed once for every seven sets of seven years. Jesus proclaims his fulfillment of the Jubliee promise in Luke 4:16–21, a development foreshadowed two chapters earlier, when the summons to report home for a census recalls the Jubilee command to return to one’s “family property” (Lev. 25:10).

It’s also noteworthy that Luke introduces his genealogy not at the start of Jesus’ life but at the start of his ministry, when he was “about thirty years old” (3:23). Thirty is a striking number. Priests began their ministry at that age (Num. 4:3), the same age at which David became king (2 Sam. 5:4) and Ezekiel saw prophetic visions of God (Ezek. 1:1). By inserting his genealogy at this stage, Luke is connecting Jesus’ ancestry to his ministry as prophet, priest, and king. By tracing it back to Adam, not just Abraham, he portrays Jesus as a prophet to the nations, a priest for all peoples, and king of the whole earth.

Then there is the question of Jesus’ paternal grandfather(s). Ever since the early third century, people have speculated that Joseph had two fathers, either because he was legally adopted or because he was the child of a levirate marriage. (In this Jewish custom, if a man died without children, his brother would marry the widow to preserve the family line.) If so, then Joseph was the son of both Heli and Jacob. That always sounded like apologetic desperation to me. But then I started noticing all the other references in Luke 3 to levirate marriage or legal adoption.

One relates to Herod and his brother Philip (Luke 3:1). Herod had married Philip’s wife, angering observant Jews—and eventually getting John the Baptist beheaded (Mark 6:17). So Luke’s account of Jesus’ adult life begins with a man enacting an adulterous “levirate marriage” while his brother was still alive.

Another concerns Jesus himself: “He was the son, so it was thought, of Joseph” (Luke 3:23). Legally, Jesus was Joseph’s son, but Joseph was not his biological father. As Gabriel explained to Mary, Jesus would be called “Son of the Most High” and “Son of God” (1:32, 35).

We even find an example in John the Baptist, who famously contrasts himself with one “the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie” (3:16). Untying a sandal strap was the key moment in the halizah, the process that released a man from levirate marriage (Deut. 25:9; Ruth 4:7). Perhaps, as Gregory the Great argued, John was declaring himself not just beneath Christ but also unworthy to displace him as Israel’s true husband. John is the best man, not the bridegroom (John 3:29).
Hearing, believing and trusting the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross; His death, burial and resurrection for the forgiveness of sins and REPENTING, seals us with that Holy Spirit of Promise - EPHESIANS 1:10-14 KJV - The Lord is not slack concerning His promise. 2 Peter 3:9 KJV - 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV - Ephesians 1:10-14 KJV - Romans 10:9-10 KJV - Romans 10:13 - Romans 10:17 - Ephesians 1:7 KJV - Colossians 1:14 KJV -
