  1. John...I didn't think of that...was his mom alive? It's so exciting to think about the conversations we will have in the new order. When all the puzzle pieces will be put together clearly. Yes Ann....I have a list of questions I want to ask of resurrected ancient faithful ones...and the great thing is I will have a perfect memory to remember them!
  2. You have a point, I can see that....Noah may not have been the oldest.
  3. Yes Averagepub there are many unknowns but are there some lessons here for us? After all, Noah's siblings did "miss the boat". They were raised by the same worshipper of Jehovah as Noah, Lamech. Did they think their brother was nuts? Were they embarrassed by him? Did they rationalize that yes there was badness all around them...but they don't get involved in that stuff. They live their lives right, why would Jehovah destroy them?
  4. So this weeks watchtower study mentioned lemech Noah's father. And it got me wondering if Noah had siblings? And was his father alive when the flood came. Genesis 5:30 answers some questions. 30 After becoming father to Noah, Laʹmech lived for 595 years. And he became father to sons and daughters. 31 So all the days of Laʹmech amounted to 777 years, and then he died. It appears that Noah may have been the oldest of the siblings and since Laʹmech is said to have sons and daughters Noah would have had at least 2 sisters and 2 brothers. According to genesis 5:32 Noah became father to his 3 sons after the age of 500. So Laʹmech was around for their births. Genesis 7:11 states Noah was 600 when the rain began. If it took 40-50 years to build the ark....Laʹmech was around for much of the building but since he lived another 595 years after Noah's birth he would have died 5 years before the flood came. But still Noah's brothers and sisters were likely around. Unless of course they were casualties of nephillim violence. I wonder if they thought about getting on the ark. Obviously they didn't but I wonder what Noah will tell us about preaching to his family. Just thoughts are rattling around my brain.
