Word Toledah Used Beginning New Testament Singular of Toledoth Used in Old Testament Origins Back to Adam


To begin the New Testament, in the book of Matthew chapter 1 verse 1, the Word says “this is the generation of Jesus . . . ,” then the ancestry of Joseph (the “father” of Jesus) back to Abraham. The word used for generation in Matthew is toledah, the same word used in the book of Genesis eleven times to describe the generations (toledoth) of eleven Old Testament persons, the origins of those people, not listings of the people who followed, rather those who preceded them, and the toledoth of the heavens and the earth in Genesis by Elohim, so no name mentioned, because Adam was not there until day six.
