    Shalom Mishpochah,

    A friend of mine has compiled the following. I thought you might like it:

    Tol'doth Yeshua ha Mashi'ach

    Greetings and Shalom,

    Since Hebrew names have meanings, several years ago, my study partner and I decided to do a Hebrew name study on the geneology of Yeshua from Luke 3, starting with Adam and back to Yeshua.

    The manner of interpretation was as follows:

    1)We used the direct meaning of the specific name from lexicons and dictionaries, and even scriptures where the reasons why they were named "so and so" is given; like Sheth being "Appointed", where his mother said, "For Elohim, said she, has appointed unto me another..etc"; we also consulted other writings, particularly Enoch and Jubilees.

    2)Another method, where the names were no longer known or appeared to us that they may have another meaning by way of their spelling, like M'thushelach being "Man of the dart" according to lexicons, we removed the Nikkudim (Vowel points) and viewed it as "M'tho" (His Death), and "Shalach" (Shall Bring/Send). This removal of the Nikkudim rendered the text in its original form; this manner of interpretation was a method often used in the Bahir, Zohar, and Midrashim. One example of this is as follows:

    "'O daughter of Gallim (GLYM)' Y'sha'yahu/Isaiah 10:30: as the waves (Gallim~ GLYM) are conspicuous in the sea, so are the patriarchs in the world. Another interpretation of 'O daughter of Gallim (GLYM)' is to read the text as 'O daughter of Golim (GLYM),' i.e. 'O daughter of wanderers'...etc" ~Midrash Lamentations Rabbah (The Proems of the Sages).

    Although we have a complete draft of this endeavor, we still debate over certain interpretations. However, what is remarkable, is in the beginning of this work, we did our own seperate interpretations without consulting one another, and the results were similar.

    It should also be noted, that when we began working on this that another Brother in the Lord, who was very interested in what we were doing, showed us a transcript he had from a Radio Bible Study he heard, and it turned out that someone else had done a similar thing, but only from Adam to Noach. So our work really isn't all that original, but it certainly was interesting to see another had similar interpretations from Adam to Noach, and we considered this to be a confirmation to procede all the way to Yeshua.

    Here, then, is the interpretation (Sorry for the lack of Hebrew fonts):

    Pt-I: Adam~Noach
    1 Adam= “Mankind”
    2 Sheth= Appointed; from Shath~ Appointed: “...and called his name Sheth: For Elohim, said she, has appointed (Shath) me another...” B’reshith /Genesis 4:25.
    3 Enosh= Mortal; from Anash~ Mortality due to sickness.
    4 Keynan= Sorrow; from Kiynah~ Lamentation, derived from Konen~ Sing Mournfully.
    5 Mahalal'el= The Praised God; from Mahalal~ Praised, and El~ God.
    6 Yered= Descends; from Yarad~ Descend.
    7 Chanokh'= Instructing; from Chanakh’~Instruct.

    9 Lamekh'= To The Afflicted; from the pre-fix L’~ To, and Makkah~ Afflicting, as with plague or sickness.
    10 Noach= Rest; From Noach~ Rest: “Call his name Noach xn, for he will be a remnant for you, whereby you will have rest (Noach)” Sepher Chanokh/Book of Enoch 106:18.

    "Man is appointed mortal sorrow, but the praised God descends, instructing that His Death shall bring to the afflicted rest."

    Pt-II: Shem~Terach
    11 Shem= “Name”, referring to YHVH.
    12 Ar'pakh'shad= The Lion Pouring Devastation/The Light Raining Desolation; from Ara~ A Lion / Or~ A Light, Pakhah~To Pour or Dropping Down as in Rain, and Shod~Desolation or Devastation.

    18 S'rug= Interwoven; from Sarag~To Interweave.
    19 Nachor= Fierce Breathing/Terrifying; from Nacharah~To Breath or Snort Fiercely: The one said that it should be interpreted as Fierce Breathing, because it is said: “The Majesty of his Fierce Breathing (Nach’ro) is terrifying.” Iyov/Job 39:20. The other said that it should perhaps refer to the Terrifying, for his fierce breathing is that of a warhorse going out to battle, which is terrifying, for it goes on to say: “...he goes out to battle.” Iyov/Job 39:21.
    20 Terach=Destitution; from Tarach~Destitute: “...he called his name Terach, for the ravens and other birds had reduced them to destitution (T’rachah).” Yovelim/Jubilees 11:12.

    "Hashem (or: YHVH), The Lion pouring devastation (or: The Light raining desolation) and sorrow, shall bring overflowing division and evil, interwoven with fierce breathing and destitution (or: interwoven with terrifying destitution)."

    Pt-III: Av’raham~Nach'shon
    21 Av'raham= Father of a Multitude; “...but thy name shall be Av’raham; for a father of many nations I have made thee.” B’reshith/Genesis 17:5.
    22 Yitz'chak= Mockingly Laugh; from Tzachak~ To Laugh Mockingly.
    23 Ya'akov= Supplants; “...Is he not rightly called Ya’akov? For he has Supplanted me (Ya’k’veniy) these two times...” B’reshith/Genesis 27:36.
    24 Y'hudah= Praise; from Yadah~ To Lift One’s Hands as in Praise.
    25 Peretz= Breaks Forth/Breaches; from Paratz~ To Break Forth or Breach.

    Thank you, very much, for this work. I've started reading the Tanach from beginning to end quite a few time and always had trouble staying awake through Gen 5. It is a very interesting way of looking at the names.
    Pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the [messiah] out of a pure heart. (II Tim 2:22)

      I see someone found one of my posts from another group. The genealogy of Yeshua is still being worked on and will be published in an anthology of hidden things in the Bible.

      In Yeshua,
      "And when Israel is sinful, the Messiah seeks for mercy upon them, as it is written, "By His stripes we were healed, and He carried the sins of many; and made intercession for the transgressors."** (B'reshith Rabbah)
