This is the audio and approximate transcript of a sermon preached on the evening of 11 December 2016. The prior sermons in this Genesis series are: He Gave Them New Clothes (Gen. 2:4–3:24), Two Religions (Gen. 4:1–16), and God and His Creation (Gen. 1:1–2:3).
(Note: I had to re-record the Bible reading after the service, so the audio quality of the reading differs from that of the live sermon.)
25 And Adam knew his wife again, and she bore a son and named him Seth, “For God has appointed another seed for me instead of Abel, whom Cain killed.” 26 And as for Seth, to him also a son was born; and he named him Enosh. Then men began to call on the name of the LORD.
5 This is the book of the genealogy of Adam. In the day that God created man, He made him in the likeness of God. 2 He created them male and female, and blessed them and called them Mankind in the day they were created. 3 And Adam lived one hundred and thirty years, and begot a son in his own likeness, after his image, and named him Seth. 4 After he begot Seth, the days of Adam were eight hundred years; and he had sons and daughters. 5 So all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years; and he died.
6 Seth lived one hundred and five years, and begot Enosh. 7 After he begot Enosh, Seth lived eight hundred and seven years, and had sons and daughters. 8 So all the days of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years; and he died.
