The Case for the Septuagint's Chronology in Genesis 5 and 11 7/27/2018 - by Henry B Smith Jr MA MAR

Many biblical scholars who interpret the genealogies of Genesis 5 and 11 as yielding a continuous chronology from Adam to Abraham claim the Hebrew Masoretic Text (MT) preserves the original begetting ages for the patriarchs.

Primeval Chronology Restored: Revisiting the Genealogies of Genesis 5 and 11 6/13/2018 - by Jeremy Sexton and Henry B Smith Jr

Until the latter part of the 19th century, both Jewish and Christian theologians and historiographers interpreted the genealogies of Genesis 5:3–32 and Genesis 11:10–32 as yielding a continuous chronology of human history from the creation of Adam to the birth of Abraham.

MT, SP, or LXX? Deciphering a Chronological and Textual Conundrum in Genesis 5 4/10/2018 - by Henry B Smith Jr MA MAR

From Adam to Abraham: An Update on the Genesis 5 and 11 Research Project: Dec. 16, 2017 4/26/2017 - by Henry B Smith Jr MA MAR

The goal of this article is to update the ABR community of supporters and other interested readers on the present state of the Genesis 5 and 11 Research Project. The project officially began in 2016 (with its unofficial roots extending back to 2010). The research has produced substantial fruit, and as a result, ABR is pleased to announce plans to publish our first book, tentatively titled, "From Adam to Abraham: The Case for the Septuagint’s Chronology in Genesis 5 and 11." This update will survey the goals of the project, describe new developments and the present direction of our research, answer some questions we have received about Genesis 5 and 11 from supporters, and briefly outline plans for publication(s).

Who Was Born When Enosh Was 90?: A Semantic Reevaluation of William Henry Green’s Chronological Gaps 4/6/2016 - by Jeremy Sexton

For a number of years, the ABR staff has been endeavoring to conduct research on the Genealogies of Genesis 5 and 11. As we worked towards the launching of this important project, Pastor Jeremy Sexton published this article in the Westminster Journal. Since it was very much in accord with the direction of our research, we invited Pastor Sexton to republish his article here, and he graciously agreed. We expect this to be the first of many articles (re)published by ABR that deal with this important, ancient, and complex subject.

Is there Archaeological Evidence for the Tower of Babel? 5/10/2008 - by John H. Walton

It is the southern Mesopotamian backdrop that provides the basis for studying the account in light of what is known of the culture and history of Mesopotamia. One of the immediate results of that perspective is firm conviction that the tower that figures predominantly in the narrative is to be identified as a ziggurat...
