“It is astounding to consider that Abraham personally knew Noah (Abraham was 58 years old when Noah died), and undoubtedly Noah told him of his father Lamech, who had seen and spoken with Adam who was created by God alone. Later, Abraham’s son Isaac personally knew Shem, Noah’s firstborn son, and the legacy of the “gospel of the garden” was thereby passed on…” ~Facebook Status, Hebrew for Christians, 10/17/12, Hebrew for Christians (Herald of Righteousness, 10/17/12)
I never stopped to think about this.
Generations entwined with generations.
It puts a sacred spin on stories.
Of touching the past and passing it on.
We just can’t let it die with us.
