Image via WikipediaThe Genesis Chart
by Teresa Carr
I put together this chart a couple of years ago. It is a genealogy chart that comes from the Bible. I'm fascinated by the Bible, ancient history, and genealogy. This is a never ending project to link descendants to their ancient ancestors. I don't know if anyone has ever gotten that far, but our link is to the past from the beginning of time and through Noah and his three sons and their wives. It is through Noah's three sons is where mankind on earth derived from. This chart is from the beginning of creation from Adam to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Happy Hunting!
Key Reference: I Chronicles 1:1-31
Beginning with Adam, Seth, Enosh, Cainan, Mahalalel, Jared, Enoch (walked with God and was not because God took him, also mentioned in the Book of Jude in the New Testament), Methuselah, Lamech, and Noah.
These are the generations of Noah and his three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
Japheth, son of Noah and ancestor of the European nations and Asia Minor (Indo-European), sons: Gomer (Germany, some authorities say Turkey), Magog (Prince of Rosh, Russia), Madai (Medes, Media an ancient kingdom between the Tigris and the Caspian seas. These are the present day Kurds.), Javan (islands of Crete and lands surrounding the Mediterranean around Ionian or Greece), Tubal (Russia), Meshech (Russia), Tiras (Tiracians, people of Tiras, recording their name as the Tursha or Tarusha. Herodotus, 425 BC Greek historian, wrote of the Thracian people, and referred to as Trajans by the historian Dio Cassius. Thracian lands stretched from southwestern Europe to Asia Minor, a vast area historically known as Thracia.The historical Thracian genealogical tree counts over 200 tribes which had several names, according to their specific regions. Some of their tribal names were Trajans, Etruscans, Dacians, Luwians, Ramantes, Pelasgians, Besins, Odrisi, Serdoi, Maidoi and Dentheletoi. The Trajans (Trojans) founded the city of Troy which existed approximately 2400 years (about 1900 BC to 500 AD), which was destroyed and rebuilt several times. Thousands of Trojan warriors left the city of Troy during the 11th century BC. They came north and captured land along the banks of the river Don (southwestern Russia), a major trade route. The locals named the Trojan conquerors the "Aes," meaning "Iron People," for their superior weaponry. The tribes of Trojan Aes would eventually move north, settling in present-day Scandinavia. The Aes or Aesar (plural), subsequently became known as the Svear, and then Swedes. Historians refer to the Aes people as "Thraco-Cimmerians" due to their Trojan ancestry. Other tribes of Thracians remained a culture in Asia Minor and southern Europe until the 5th century AD. Many present-day Bulgarians claim to be direct descendants of ancient Thracians, different from the Slavs who arrived that region in the 6th century AD. The name Tiras perpetuated through different languages, as in this list of names from Noah to the present-day Swedes over a period of 4,000 years.).(see Ezekiel 38, KJV)
Sons of Gomer (continued through the names of Gamir, Gimmer, Gomeria, Gotarna and Goth. The Assyrians in the 7th century referred to them as the Gimirraya.

Cimmerians populated areas of the north of the Caucasus & Black Sea in southern Russia.): Ashkenaz (Turkic-Mongol, where the name Ashkenazi Jews, Aryan Turkish tribes, were taken and the name Nazi is derived from. This was where the Khazars descended from this line. This war-like tribe founded the Khazarian Empire became the major power in ancient Eastern Europe and converted to Judaism in 740 A.D. In World War II during Hitler’s regime, some of his Nazi officers were of Jewish descent. Hitler referred to the Germanic people as the Aryan race.), Diphath (Riphath, father of the Paphlagonians, which were anciently called Riphataei, the Arimphaei of Pliny, and the Riphaeans of Mela, who inhabited near the Riphaean mountains), Togarmah (Turkey, north of Judea, see Ezekiel 38:6 his posterity are the Phrygians, according to Josephus; but some place them in Galatia and Cappadocia; and Strabo makes mention of a people called Trocmi, on the borders of Pontus and Cappadocia; and Cicero of the Trogmi or Trogini, who may have their name from hence; for the Greek interpreters always call him Torgama or Thorgana. The Jews make the Turks to be the posterity of Togarmah.).

Joseph’s 12 brothers sold him into slavery. Joseph is taken to Egypt. In obedience to his Lord, Joseph rises to greatness next to Pharaoh. A famine smites the land of Canaan. Egypt is spared by the dream revealed by God to Pharaoh that Joseph interpreted. Joseph’s brothers come to Egypt looking for food. Joseph tests his brothers and gets them to bring the younger brother Benjamin to Egypt. Joseph later reveals his identity to his brothers. All of Jacob’s family is united in Egypt where they live and the generations of the 12 tribes thrive until another Pharaoh rises up that did not know Joseph. The children of Israel are sed as slaves by the Egyptians for over 400 years. God rises up a prophet and deliverer called Moses. He brings them out of Egypt after God sends the plagues upon Egypt to set the people free. The people wander in the wilderness for 40 years before entering into the Promised Land of Canaan. Because of their disobedience the older generations die in the wilderness, only their children under the age of 20 could enter into the Promised Land. The ones to enter first into the land were Joshua and Caleb.
There was no king to rule Israel at this time so the Judges judged Israel these were Deborah and Barak, Gideon, Jephthah, Samson, Micah, and Benjamin. The last judge and prophet was Samuel. God commanded Samuel to anoint Saul as first king of Israel. Because of Saul’s sin and disobedience God commanded Samuel to anoint another king. God instructs Samuel to go to Jesse and select the future king from Jesse’s sons. Samuel anoints young David to be the future king to replace King Saul. David serves under Saul and Saul plots to kill David. David aids Saul’s army to defeat the Philistines and their champion, the giant, Goliath of Gath. David marries Saul’s daughter Michal. Later King Saul and his sons die in battle. David becomes king of Israel. It’s through his son Nathan continues the royal line to Jesus Christ.
