"The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob"

The above phrase is the common three-generation descriptive title of God. God Himself declares it to Moses at the burning bush when revealing His name, "I AM":

"And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations." (Ex. 3:14, 15)

You will remember that God said to Abraham that after 400 years He would deliver Israel, "...in the fourth generation." A generation in the Bible is normally 40 years long. However, here a generation is 100 years (4 x 100 = 400 years). Since Abraham had his promised child when he was exactly 100 years old, it is evident therefore that the age of a man when he has his first child is here taken for a generation. Nevertheless, notice that the full number (400 years) is exactly times 10 of a regular generation of 40 years. Both 100 years and 40 years are accepted as a generation in the Bible, with the average of the two likewise accepted, but on a secondary level. All things have "two or three witnesses" to them.

40 + 100 = 140 years. 140 ÷ 2 = 70 years as a generation.

 

In the New Testament, the phrase "The God and Father of our Lord Yeshua Messiah," replaces the Old Testament phrase, "The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob." This is because Messiah is, of Himself, the last or fourth part (4 x 100 years) of the three-generations phrase (i.e., after, "…God of Jacob,…"). Furthermore, He is of Himself, the entire 400 years as symbolic of a 40-year generation (times 10).(1) As we shall discover, any number multiplied or divided by an even 10, 100, 1000, etc., carries the same basic meaning.

As for showing 'why' a generation is primarily 40 years, I will relegate the bulk of that discussion to a footnote since it is commonly received already among scholars.(2)

However, this much can be said here since it is within the immediate context of the bible code text. Two genealogical records are supplied of the generations that lived during the long stay in Egypt. The first lists four names and is (probably) a partial list. It was given immediately before the plagues of Egypt begin (Ex. 6:13-27, and recurs in 1Chronicles 6:1-3. This list covers Levi to Moses). The second has ten generations of names (1Chronicles 7:20-27. This list covers Ephraim to Joshua's father, "Nun". {Joshua is the 11th name listed here because he represents the generation in the wilderness (40 years) since he leads into the succeeding generation in Canaan land.} Hence, we see that the 4 generation of names (4 x 100 = 400 years) represents the four generations in Egypt foretold by God. The 10 generation of names represent the same but as 10 x 40 (400 years) with the following 40 years of desert wanderings accounted to "Joshua". The name "Joshua" is a variant of the name "Yeshua").

Therefore, in our three-generation descriptive title of God; "...of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob," using the standard generation of 40 years, we total 120 years for the Patriarchs (3 x 40 = 120 years). This is not only the total number of the bible code skip frequencies, but (as we said before) is also the identical numerical pattern of the segments in Moses life.

If the Lord wills we shall study this 120-letter/year phenomena more closely next lesson, giving attention to the dates and chronology of the events of Abraham through to the Exodus.

 

ENDNOTES

(1) I "happened" upon several new codes yesterday and today (10/20,21/97). All have important bearing on these things. Today I looked up the name of "Elijah" and "Moses" as joined together as one at the shared Hebrew letter "E " ("O Z E J M A "). The first instance of it I found is the most important for our purposes and has direct bearing on the issue of, "what is a generation." However, another bible code discovered yesterday (using the word "witnesses") is far more important.

However, the bible code I would draw your attention to now is the "Moses", "Elijah" (O Z E J M A) code found in the Flood narrative. It begins with Genesis 8:6, "mountain," (the very last letter of the verse), unto verse 9, "her," (as in reference to the dove at the end of the verse). It occurs at 38 letter skips for a total of 190 letters. In the Septuagint version of Ezekiel 4, Ezekiel is told to lie on his side 150 days plus 40, for a total of 190. What I would draw your attention to in relationship to the "scrolling" effect I have just described, is that upon checking a commentary just now to do with this passage (Genesis 8:6-9), I happened upon this footnote in the Expositor's Bible Commentary Vol. 2, pg. 90. (The author here is quoting someone else):

      "Most recently J.W. Wenham … has shown how the structure of the Flood story centers the reader's attention on the, "But God remembered Noah" of 8:1. Particularly important is the way that the structural patterns noted by Wenham help explain the author's careful attention to the times of each event. Wenham points to the following pattern of "mirror-image" repetition in the use of numbers.

       

      7days of waiting for the Flood (7:4)

          7 days of waiting for Flood (7 :10)

              40 days of Flood (7:17a)

                  150 days of water triumphing 7:24)

                  150 days of water waning (8:3)

              40 days of waiting (8:6)

          7 days of waiting (8:10)

      7 days of waiting (8:12)"

 

The author goes on to say, "The period of "40 days" is also significant later in the Torah as the time of waiting and watching in the "40 days" of the spying out the land and the corresponding "40 years" of waiting in the wilderness (Num. 14:33-35). In the Numbers passage, the "40 years" are specifically said to correspond to the "40 days." This author then goes on to show a series of pattern relationships of the flood to that of Abraham. He says, "both … represent new beginnings…" (pg. 91).

The Bible code of "Elijah" and "Moses," ("the Two Witnesses" of Revelation 11), as occurring at the end of the 40 days of 8:6, therefore carries the 150 days of the Flood waters, plus the 40 days of waiting, and or versa vIsaiah {It therefore agrees with Ezekiel's waiting on his side.}

Mr. Wenham's term, "mirror-image" is basically the same term I use to describe the "BC", "AD" mirror of Christ's birth. His birth is the ultimate new beginning. This is perhaps the most important key to understanding the numbers.

{By the way, I have no doubt in my mind that the scholars are correct in saying that the Hebrew manuscripts of 390 days plus 40, do indeed represent the original manuscript in Ezekiel 4. However, let me say it now, that I believe that wherever there is serious doubt as to an alternative line of manuscripts (for attempting to ascertain the original), both are to be accepted though not with equal weight. Therefore, the 430 years total of Ezekiel is by far preferred in the study of the numbers. Nevertheless, 190 has importance too, not just because of the Ezekiel passage, but because the Jewish calendar of years is based upon a 28-year solar and 19-year lunar basis. Hence, 190 are 10 lunar cycles. This is an amazing study in itself. For example, the exact middle of the 200th lunar cycle was the death of Messiah in 30 AD. The end of the 300th was the start of World War 2 (1939) wherein 6 million Jews regrettably lost their lives.}

(2) That the standard round number for a generation is 40 years is well attested. The "forty-year" period occurs about a dozen times in the Bible. It is the reason why some scholars do not accept the 480 years between the Exodus and Solomon's temple as found in 1Kings 6:1 to be a literal span of time. They see it as a schematic way of referring to a conventional 12 generations. I mention this to show the common consent to the idea of a generation as 40 years. Many of the lengths of rule of the Judges, along with the first three kings of Israel (including Solomon), reigned 40 years. However, as with Moses length of years, I believe they are all literal.
