1 Chronicles 1: From Adam To The Seed Of Abraham
"And Abraham begat Isaac. The sons of Isaac; Esau and Israel"
The first chapter of 1 Chronicles documents the Messianic genealogy from Adam to Abraham. The parallel lines of all of humanity are included because "Israel" was created from all nations (e.g. see The LORD's Seed Covenants With The Two Men Of Iraq, A Biography Of Jacob: The Jacobites Of Syria, The First Jews, Ruth: Building The House Of Israel and The Adoption Of Ephraim and Manasseh) - as an object-lesson prophecy of how the Kingdom of God will be inhabited by the children of God who will be born from all nations (see What Was The Lesson Of John 3:16? and The Church: Mission Accomplished).
The creation of "Adam" (from the Hebrew word pronounced aw-dawm which means man as a species, male and female i.e. "1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them" Genesis 1:27 KJV; see Adam and Adamah) to the lines of Noah, from whom all human life today is also descended:
"1:1 Adam, Sheth, Enosh, 1:2 Kenan, Mahalaleel, Jered, 1:3 Henoch, Methuselah, Lamech, 1:4 Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
All of "the seed of Abraham" populated the lands from the Nile River in Egypt to the Euphrates River in Iraq, while the Messianic line was assigned the land of Israel (see Abraham's Seed: From The Nile To The Euphrates).
"1:28 The sons of Abraham; Isaac, and Ishmael.
