ALPHABETIC HISTORY of CIVILIZATION
ANCIENT and MODERN GENEALOGIES


PREFACE
This book evaluates historical knowledge as it relates to ancient and modern genealogies.
Information gleaned from social contexts, both secular and religious, are reviewed, using
modern genealogical research specialist standards: to properly reconstruct and correctly
portray real historical lives and family pedigrees.  Cultural, religious and family tradition,
(their stated facts and viewpoints), are surveyed within given ancient contexts of
primary
and secondary record sources, as handed down for the benefit of our modern generation.
Modern claims of genealogical attachment to biblical records are noted, with remarks.

Fragmented Pedigrees of the Tribe of Ephraim

INTRODUCTION

Pliny the Elder, circa A.D. 23 - 79, scholar, historian, and scientific encyclopedist,
born at Novum Comum in northern Italy but mainly resident of Rome, mentions
the Phoenicians in his thirty seven book work:
Natural History.  This record,
considered by some as the apex of ancient science after the time of the school
of Aristotle, stated that: "To the
Phoenician people belongs the glory of having
invented letters and discovered the sciences of astronomy, navigation and the art
of war."  In
Cory's Ancient Fragments, by Isaac Preston Cory, Esq., mention is made
of the Greek historian previous to the Christian era, by name called Eupolemus.
This
Eupolemus notes that in the tenth generation, Abraham lived in Camarina of
Babylonia [Urie], a city of the Chaldeans, and was of noble heritage and superior
to all others in wisdom.  Abraham was stated to be the inventor of astrology and
the Chaldaean magic; esteemed of God due to his eminent and recognized piety.
Under the direction of the God of Heaven, Abraham removed and lived in
Phoenicia, and there taught the Phoenicians the motions of the sun and moon
and all other things, for which reason, he was held in great reverence, by the
Phoenician King.

Louis H. Feldman writes about "
Proselytes and "Sympathizers" in the light
of the new inscriptions from Aphrodisias", in
Revue des tudes Juives,
CXLVIII (3-4), juillet-decenbre 1989, pp. 265-305; that: "The Jews'
reputed skill in astrology may likewise have proved an attraction.
The Graeco-Jewish historian
Artapanus (ca. 100 B.C.E.) (ap. Eusebius,
Praeparatio Evangelica
9.18.1) states that it was Abraham who taught
the Egyptian pharaoh the science of astrology.  Similar statements are
found in pseudo-Eupolemus (ap. Eusebius, Praeparatio Evangelica 9.17.8)
and Josephus (
Antiquities 1.167).

Indeed, Hadrian  (
Scriptores Historiae Augustae, Quadrigae Tyrannorum 8.3)
remarks that there is no chief of a synagogue who is not an astrologer
(mathematicus), soothsayer (haruspex), or anointer (aliptes).  Moreover, in
the middle of the second century,
Vettius Valens, in his astrological work,
Anthologiae (2.28,29), refers to Abraham as a most wonderful astrological
authority.  Furthermore, Abraham's skill in astrology is mentioned no fewer
than four times in
Firmicus Maternus' fourth century astrological treatise,
the Mathesis (4: Proemium 5, 17.2, 17.5, and 18.1).  Firmicus' contemporary
Julian (Contra Galileos 356C) remarks that Abraham employed the method
of divination from shooting stars and from the flight of birds.  Since, we may
remark, proselytes are regarded as children of Abraham, himself the first
proselyte, they would presumably identify with him as an astrologer."

Critical analysis of evidence discussed within these records shows some
historical validity of the existence of an Abraham, connected with knowledge
of planetary motions, practice of an internationally recognized religious priesthood,
as well as being a teacher and communicator through letters and writings.  Secondary
evidence is thus provided for the statement given in the
Book of Abraham, translated
from papyrus by
Joseph Smith, Jr., from Chapter 1, Verse 31; namely:
"But the records of the fathers, even the patriarchs, concerning the right of Priesthood,
the Lord my God preserved in mine own hands; therefore a knowledge of the beginning
of the creation, and also of the planets, and of the stars, as they were made known unto
the fathers, have I kept even unto this day, and I shall endeavor to write some of these
things upon this record, for the benefit of my posterity that shall come after me."
The Prophet
Joseph Smith, Jr. received Hebrew language education, by the instructions
of the erudite Jew,
Joshua Seixas, whose family pedigree is listed and recorded in the
book:
First American Jewish Families, by Rabbi Malcolm H. Stern, FASG.

Additional secondary evidence is in the
Grammar & Alphabet of the Egyptian Language,
in which the ancient patriarchs are listed:
Phah eh         The first man, or Adam, coming from Adam -
                       Keys or right over Patriarchal right by appointment;
                       Also know as: Ba eth Ka - Adam or the first man, or first king
Ba eth Kee   The next from Adam, one ordained under him,
                       a patriarch or the right of the first born [Seth]
Ba eth Ki      The third patriarch: or right of the first born [Enos]
Ba eth Ko     The fourth patriarch from Adam the right of first born [Cainan]
Ba eth Ku     The fifth high priest from Adam [Mahalaleel]

T
he Pearl of Great Price and Book of Abraham testify "the book of Abraham should
be evaluated on the basis of what it claims to be--Abraham's own account of his life."
The
Deseret News, Salt Lake City, November 27, 1967, notes the finding of eleven
papyrus fragments, in the NYC Metropolitan Museum of Art.  The back of the papyri
were pasted down to paper with "drawings of a temple and maps of the Kirtland, Ohio
area."  An affidavit of
Emma Smith stated that these papyri had been in the possession
of
Joseph Smith, Jr.  According to this source, the Biblical creation story, the deluge,
"the records of the fathers, even the patriarchs," appear therefore as genealogical
primary source records, transcribed by Abraham from "preserved" and "kept" data,
handed down from generation to generation.  As noted by the
History of the Church,
Vol. 2, Ch. 16-17, pgs. 235-238, July 1835,
Joseph Smith, Jr. determined that "one of the
rolls contained the writings of Abraham, another the writings of Joseph of Egypt"
and he "was continually engaged in translating an alphabet to the Book of Abraham,
and arranging a grammar of the Egyptian language as practiced by the ancients."

From a genealogical research standpoint, "arranging a grammar of the Egyptian
language as practiced by the ancients", suggests that all the ancient patriarchs,
beginning with Adam, the Ancient of Days, were skilled in the art of record keeping.
This thought is further clarified in the Book of Moses,
P of GP, Chapter 6, verses 5-9:
And a book of remembrance was kept, in the which was recorded, in the language
of Adam, for it was given unto as many as called upon God to write by the spirit of
inspiration;  And by them their children were taught to read and write, having a
language which was pure and undefiled.  Now this same Priesthood, which was
in the beginning, shall be in the end of the world also.  Now this prophecy Adam spake,
as he was moved upon by the Holy Ghost, and a genealogy was kept of the children
of God.  And this was the book of the generations of Adam, saying: In the day that God
created man, in the likeness of God made he him; In the image of his own body, male
and female, created he them, and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day
when they were created and became living souls in the land upon the footstool of God.

The KJV Bible, Old Testament record, also declares in Exodus, Chapter 24, verse 4:
"
And Moses wrote all the words of the Lord, and rose up early in the morning, and
builded an altar under the hill, and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel
."
In Chapter 5, verse 1-2 of
Genesis, Moses recorded: "This is the book of the generations
of Adam.  In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; Male and
female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when
they were created.
"  The cross comparison of information shows a correct match of Biblical
Genesis, Chapter 5, verse 1, with the Pearl of Great Price, Book of Moses, Chapter 6,
verse 8.  Clearly, internal source evidence suggests primary source documents, or
copies thereof, going back to the time of Adam and (Eve - the Mother of all Living),
were available to
Moses, who then wrote or copied them for himself and other Israelites.


GENEALOGIES:
A Master Number beginning with three digits is given to the direct line
descending stem.  All other descending lineages are ordered according to
where they connect into the direct line of descent as sons or daughters.
They have a dash (-) to show the connection.  The Numbers are arranged
by time of birth in the family, where possible, with the direct descendant
being placed where he or she belongs by order of birth.  In cases of long
and questionable pedigrees, the lineage is shown descending down, but
with no numbering system attached.  Added commentary is author's opinion.

001:  
GOD: The Eternal FATHER: AHMAN (ELOHEIM - ELOHIM)

Family of God, the Eternal Father (Ahman):
God the Father
Marriages:  God, by definition, is a couple, or husband and wife (wives)
                    combination.  When the Father said He created Man; male
                    and female created He them, in His own image, it means:
                    My immortal wife and I created our children in the image
                    of ourselves.  Each and every person born on this earth has
                    a spirit body of contained intelligence: a spirit child of God.
                    Ahman, a glorified, immortal Man, in the Meridian of Time,
                    physically associated with the mortal Mary, who was over-
                    come by the Holy Ghost, becoming the literal physical and
                    spiritual Father of Jesus Christ, His Only Begotten Son.
                   
The Eternal Father was married or priesthood sealed to
                    the
exceedingly fair and white virgin Mary, mortal mother
                    of Jesus Christ, prior to her conception; "
for that which
                    is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost"
Luke 1: 26-55
                    records the formal e
ternal betrothal, which was part of
                    ancient Mosaic legal and lawful wedding ceremony,
as
                    announced by the angel
Gabriel, who was formerly known
                    as Noah in mortality, recorded in the biblical Old Testament.
                    The angel Gabriel, or Noah, was
the family head over Mary,
                    holding the keys of
all living upon the face of the earth, the
                    highest
patriarchal priesthood religious authority after Adam.
                    "
Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed
                    art thou among women."  "The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee,
                    and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also
                    that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son
                    of God."  Consent by Mary to the terms of the contract: "Behold
                    the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word
",
                    sealed
the husband and wife relationship.  Joseph, a noted literal
                    descendant of King David, by the request of God, took intelligent
                    Mary to wife, becoming the mortal protective stepfather of Jesus Christ.

The Children of 001: God, the Eternal Father
001-001:   DIRECT DESCENDANT 002: (The Only Begotten Son)
                 
SON AHMAN - JESUS CHRIST - The Old Testament God: JEHOVAH
                  Jesus Christ was the eldest born spirit child of
GOD: The Eternal FATHER,
                  in the spirit Kingdom or
pre-existence residence of the family of Man.
                  Jesus Christ is the
Elder brother of all mankind that will live on this earth.
001-002:   Billions of spirit children of Heavenly Father who refused to follow
                  Jesus Christ in the spirit Kingdom.  These non embodied spirits followed
                  Lucifer, or Satan, in the
pre-existence and are numbered as one-third
                  of the the spirit children designated by Ahman to inhabit this earth.
001-003:   Billions of spirit children of Heavenly Father who have been born,
                  are now living, or will ever be born upon this earth.  Sufficiently true
                  and faithful to God in the
pre-existence Kingdom, these spirits obtained
                  the right of receiving mortal bodies, in an earthly probationary state.
001-004:   An innumerable,
incalculable , countless , immeasurable by man,
                  forever infinitely increasing
number of spirit children of Heavenly Father,
                  residing on
millions of
earths like this, (or, on earths glorified to a celestial,
                 
terrestrial or telestial post mortal state); or in the spirit world residence of
                  Heavenly Father, awaiting their time to come to future probationary earths.
                 
Moses 1: 37-39  And the Lord God spake unto Moses, saying: The heavens,
                 they are many, and they cannot be numbered unto man; but they are numbered
                 unto me, for they are mine.  And as one earth shall pass away, and the heavens
                 thereof even so shall another come; and there is no end to my works, neither
                 to my words.  For behold, this is my work and my glory--to bring to pass
                 the immortality and eternal life of man.

001-005:   Spirit children of Heavenly Father, who
willfully deny the Holy Ghost testimony
                  of Jesus Christ: The Only Begotten Son of God; putting Him to an
open shame.

And were it possible that man could number the particles of the earth, yea,
millions of earths like this, it would not be a beginning to the number of thy

thy bosom is there; and also thou art just; thou art merciful and kind forever;

Kolob was after the manner of the Lord, according to its times and seasons
in the revolutions thereof; that one revolution was a day unto the Lord, after
his manner of reckoning, it being one thousand years according to the time
appointed unto that whereon thou standest (Earth).  This is the reckoning
of the Lord’s time, according to the reckoning of Kolob.  The chronology of
this earth is related to the chronology of Kolob, the name of a celestial
planet next to the residence of God. 
D&C 88: 36-45  And there are many
kingdoms; for there is no space in the which there is no kingdom; and
there is no kingdom in which there is no space, either a greater or a lesser
kingdom. . . . And again, verily I say unto you, he hath given a law unto
all things, by which they move in their times and their seasons; And their
courses are fixed, even the courses of the heavens and the earth, which
comprehend the earth and all the planets.  And they give light to each
other in their times and in their seasons, in their minutes, in their hours,
in their days, in their weeks, in their months, in their years . . . The earth
rolls upon her wings, and the sun giveth his light by day, and the moon
giveth her light by night, and the stars also give their light, as they roll
upon their wings in their glory, in the midst of the power of God.

Jah-oh-eh is the earth under the governing power of Oliblish, Enish-go-

Joseph Smith, Jr. delivered a discourse before about twenty thousand
     Saints at the April conference of the Church, 1844, at the funeral sermon of Elder
     King Follett.  He said: "God himself was once as we are now, and is an exalted man,
     and sits enthroned in yonder heavens!  That is the great secret.  If the veil were rent
     today, and the great God who holds this world in its orbit, and who upholds all worlds
     and all things by his power, was to make himself visible,—I say, if you were to see him
     today, you would see him like a man in form—like yourselves in all the person, image,
     and very form as a man; for Adam was created in the very fashion, image and likeness
     of God, and received instruction from, and walked, talked and conversed with him,
     as one man talks and communes with another. . . . It is the first principle of the Gospel
     to know for a certainty the Character of God, and to know that we may converse with
     him as one man converses with another, and that he was once a man like us; yea, that
     God himself, the Father of us all, dwelt on an earth, the same as Jesus Christ himself
     did; and I will show it from the Bible."

"connection" or "touch" in Hebrew, is a notion in Jewish law (Halakha)
that restricts (or forbids) physical contact with, or touching of, a member
of the opposite sex, except for one's spouse, and immediate family.   Also,
when Mary Magdalene was asked by Jesus to speak to the brethren:
"I

003:   ADAM: A SONS AHMAN (son of JESUS CHRIST by priesthood
ordinance
).
          Adam, being
sealed to Christ as His adopted son, becomes thereby,
          a fully established prophet, priest and king; an eternal god in his own
          right and standing.  He exercises the fullness of the patriarchal priesthood.
          Adam possesses the keys of the Universe and rules over his posterity
          and the planet Earth, throughout all eternity.  [
Adam holds the keys of
          the dispensation of the fullness of times; i.e., the dispensation of all the
          times have been and will be revealed through him from the beginning
          to Christ, and from Christ to the end of the dispensations that are to be
          revealed.  Section 4, p.167 - Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith
]

          Official calling to LDS office of church patriarch, within Hyrum Smith's
          family lineage, who was the brother of Joseph Smith, Jr., created by
          revelation, restoration in Melchizedek priesthood authority of the legal
          independent final word: High Priest Patriarchal Judge.   Equivalent in
          American government, to the Supreme Court of the United States of
          America.  It judicially stands next to the LDS First Presidency, as the
          Supreme Court stands next to the Presidency of the United States of
          America.  The Melchizedek priesthood Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
          and the First Quorum of Seventy, preside in similar manner as the
          American national  legislative bodies, the United States Senate and
          House of Representatives.  Foundations of government were divinely
          established in the
Charters of Freedom of the United States of America.
         
All seers are entitled by right of their calling and office, to have direct
          access to the
Urim and Thummim.  In the case of former Church Patriarch
          Emeritus
, the rightful heir of Hyrum Smith was Eldred G. Smith.  He was
          the last remaining vestige of authority, like a removed appendix from the
          body of Christ, to validate through direct revelation, celestial genealogies.

          upon him, and he receive not the gift?  Behold, he rejoices not in that
          which is given unto him, neither rejoices in him who is the giver of the gift.


         
D&C 107: 56-57  And Adam stood up in the midst of the congregation; and,
          notwithstanding he was bowed down with age, being full of the Holy Ghost,
          predicted whatsoever should befall his posterity unto the latest generation.
          These things were all written in the book of Enoch, and are to be testified
          of in due time.  Adam and all of his righteous posterity were required to
          wait until the resurrection of Jesus Christ before receiving their own bodies;
          additionally, "their resurrection cometh to pass before the resurrection of those
          who die after the resurrection of Christ", according to the Book of Mormon
          prophet Alma
Alma 40:19 .

          By the time of the end of the millennium, all of Adam's posterity who accept
          the gospel must be
sealed together as one family by the power of the priesthood,
          which is the power to
seal on earth, and it shall be sealed in heaven, and to bind
          on earth, and it shall be bound in heaven.
          (
Eldred G. Smith)

          D&C 128: 18  It is sufficient to know, in this case, that the earth will be smitten
          with a curse unless there is a welding link of some kind or other between the
          fathers and the children, upon some subject or other—and behold what is that
          subject?  It is the baptism for the dead.  For we without them cannot be made
          perfect; neither can they without us be made perfect.  Neither can they nor we
          be made perfect without those who have died in the gospel also; for it is necessary
          in the ushering in of the dispensation of the fulness of times, which dispensation
          is now beginning to usher in, that a whole and complete and perfect union, and
          welding together of dispensations, and keys, and powers, and glories should take
          place, and be revealed from the days of Adam even to the present time.  And not
          only this, but those things which never have been revealed from the foundation
          of the world, but have been kept hid from the wise and prudent, shall be revealed
          unto babes and sucklings in this, the dispensation of the fulness of times.

          Moses 3: 20  And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air,
          and to every beast of the field.  Adam was taught by God to read and write.
          Adam and Eve were exceedingly intelligent, both before and after the Fall.


          No lesson is more manifest in nature than that all living things do as
          the Lord commanded in the Creation.  They reproduce "after their own kind."
          (See:
Moses 2: 12, 24)  They follow the pattern of their parentage.  Everyone
          knows that; every four-year-old knows that!  A bird will not become an animal
          nor a fish.  A mammal will not beget reptiles, nor "do men gather … figs of thistles."
          (
Matthew 7: 16)

          In the countless billions of opportunities in the reproduction of living things, one
          kind does not beget another.  If a species ever does cross, the offspring cannot
          reproduce.  The pattern for all life is the pattern of the parentage.

          This is demonstrated in so many obvious ways, even an ordinary mind should
          understand it.  Surely no one with reverence for God could believe that His children
          evolved from slime or from reptiles.  (Although one can easily imagine that those
          who accept the theory of evolution don't show much enthusiasm for genealogical
          research!)  The theory of evolution, and it is a theory, will have an entirely different
          dimension when the workings of God in creation are fully revealed.

Marriage:
"And I, God said unto mine Only Begotten, which was with me from the beginning:
Let us make man [not a separate man, but a complete man, which is husband and wife]
in our image, after our likeness; and it was so." (
Moses 2: 26)  What a beautiful
partnership!  Adam and Eve were married for eternity by the Lord.  Such a marriage
extends beyond the grave.  All peoples should call for this kind of marriage.
(Spencer W. Kimball)

D&C 132: 38  David also received many wives and concubines,
and also Solomon and Moses my servants, as also many others
of my servants, from the
beginning of creation until this time;
and in nothing did they sin save in those things which they
received not of me.

geography (location):
Spring Hill, Daviess County,
Missouri (USA) is named in scripture, by the Lord:
Adam-ondi-Ahman (Garden of Eden).  The land where Adam dwelt was part
of the geographic area of the Garden of Eden; insomuch, that Adam and Eve
heard the voice of the Lord from the way toward the Garden of Eden, speaking
unto them.  To Adam and Eve, it appears to have been a familiar, remembered
sacred spot, where they had previously had personal contact with God;
contiguous, neighboring, or adjacent to Spring Hill, Daviess County, MO (USA).
The Garden of Eden was located on what is now the North American continent.
D&C 117: 8  Is there not room enough on the mountains of Adam-ondi-Ahman,
and on the plains of Olaha Shinehah, or the land where Adam dwelt, suggests
a different geographical configuration for the North American land mass.
According to
Genesis 2: 10-14, a river went out of Eden to water the garden;
and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.  The name of
the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah,
where there is gold; And the gold of that land is good; there is bdellium
and the onyx stone.  And the name of the second river is Gihon; the same
is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.  And the name of the third
river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria.  And the
fourth river is Euphrates.  The mountains of Adam-ondi-Ahman, by rainfall
or massive underground sources, brought forth a river that went out of the
Garden of Eden, to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and
became into four heads, within the unified confines of one worldwide land
mass area; being an apparent elevated area, central to the location of the
current State of Missouri, in the USA, North American Continent (A.D. 2011).


Valley of Adam-ondi-Ahman, reconstructed with connections to present day
gold mining and Pangaea, shows a pattern of finds from the United States,
flowing down through Middle and Central America, parallel South American
and African continental connections, to deposits within southern
South Africa;
to
India,  Indonesia  and Australia; also, tributary connection into northwest
United States, Canada, Alaska, to Russian Siberia and Middle East regions.
Biblical and other texts, suggest that the identification of regions by large
river systems, indicates ancient use of these waterways for transport and
travel (
D&C 61).  Behold, I, the Lord, in the beginning blessed the waters;
but in the last days, by the mouth of my servant John, I cursed the waters.
Wherefore, the days will come that no flesh shall be safe upon the waters.
And it shall be said in days to come that none is able to go up to the land
of Zion upon the waters, but he that is upright in heart.  And, as I, the Lord,
in the beginning cursed the land, even so in the last days have I blessed it,
in its time, for the use of my saints, that they may partake the fatness thereof.
The mention of gold and other precious metals gave sign posts to the posterity
of Adam, for determination of location in relation to various family migrations,
from the
region of the first human homestead, situated near the garden of Eden.
And Adam and Eve, his wife, called upon the name of the Lord, and they heard
the voice of the Lord from the way toward the Garden of Eden, speaking unto
them, and they saw him not; for they were shut out from his presence. . . .
And from that time forth, the sons and daughters of Adam began to divide
two and two in the land, and to till the land, and to tend flocks, and they
also begat sons and daughters.


life:
Adam  Besides the Fall having had to do with Adam and Eve, causing a
change to come over them, that change affected all human nature, all of
the natural creations, all of the creation of animals, plants--all kinds of life
were changed. The earth itself became subject to death.
(
Harold B. Lee)

The celestial environment in the Garden of Eden, including the celestial
bodies of Adam and Eve, had no Radioactive Decay: the death process.
After the Fall, the vegetarian animals and some plants became carnivorous.

religion:
Moses 6: 64  And it came to pass, when the Lord had spoken with Adam, our
father, that Adam cried unto the Lord, and he was caught away by the Spirit
of the Lord, and was carried down into the water, and was laid under the water,
and was brought forth out of the water.  Adam had, prior to the Fall, helped to
make and organize this world, as
Michael, the Archangel, in the spirit world, with
Jehovah and Eloheim.  He is the head patriarchal priesthood representative of
all mankind, under Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten of the Father, (through whom
the worlds are and were created, and the inhabitants thereof are begotten sons

and daughters unto God).  [Research Note:  When Adam and Eve were cast out of the
Garden of Eden, they became subject to physical death, as well as being spiritually
excommunicated from the presence of God.  They were given Temple garments
to wear, made of skins (the first biological animal deaths), to protect them from
the temporal elements, during this probationary excommunicated time period.
Adam and Eve fell into a temporal married status.  After Adam received some
restoration of his priesthood ordinances, he baptized his wife Eve.  Adam and Eve
were the first members of the
(Church of the Firstborn - Section Five 1842-43, p.237;
Highest Order of Priesthood Revealed. . . Joseph Smith, Jr., spent the day in the upper
part of the store . . . in council . . . instructing them in the principles and order of the
Priesthood, attending to washings, anointings, endowments and the communication
of keys pertaining to the Aaronic Priesthood, and so on to the highest order of the
Melchizedek Priesthood, setting forth the order pertaining to the Ancient of Days,
and all those plans and principles by which any one is enabled to secure the fullness
of those blessing which have been prepared for the Church of the Firstborn, and come
up and abide in the presence of the Eloheim in the eternal worlds.)
, even Jesus Christ,
upon this earth.  Special priesthood ordinances were performed to restore the Eternal
Marriage Covenant, received from Jehovah in the Garden of Eden, prior to the fall.]
D&C 107: 53   Adam was the presiding High Priest D&C 107: 3 in the Holy Priesthood,
after the Order of the Son of God.  After his death, the Ancient of Days, entered into
paradise, waiting there for thousands of years, looking forward to the resurrection
of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Master.  Adam and Eve, with their righteous posterity,
were gathered together when Christ died; an innumerable company of just spirits,
those who had been faithful in the testimony of Jesus while they lived in mortality.
These dead individuals had looked upon the long absence of their spirits from their
bodies as a bondage.  The Lord Jesus Christ taught them, and gave them power to
come forth, after His resurrection from the dead, to enter into His Father’s kingdom,
there to receive mansions on high, and be crowned with immortality and eternal life.
Jesus Christ freely gave His life in pure charity.  He manifested appreciation and true
reciprocation for the physical body He obtained from Mary, through the lineage
of Adam, which granted the Messiah the opportunity to be exalted to Eternal Lives;
providing also, the means by which all mankind might be saved, through repentance
and perfect obedience to the fullness of the ordinances of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

time period: 4000 B.C. to 3070 B.C.
Adam was 130 years old when Seth was born (Gen. 5:3).  And the days of Adam,
after he had begotten Seth, were 800 years, making him 930 years old when he
died (Gen. 5:4-5).  Lamech, the 9th from Adam, and the father of Noah, was 56
years old when Adam died; Methuselah, 243; Enoch, 308; Jared, 470;
Mahalaleel, 535; Cainan, 605; Enos, 695; and Seth, 800.  So that Lamech
(the father of Noah), Methuselah, Enoch, Jared, Mahalaleel, Cainan, Enos,
Seth, and Adam, were all living at the same time, and beyond all controversy
were all preachers of righteousness.

     Q. What are we to understand by the book which John saw, which was sealed
          on the back with seven seals?
          - A. We are to understand that it contains the revealed will, mysteries,
                and the works of God; the hidden things of his economy concerning this earth
                during the seven thousand years of its continuance, or its temporal existence.
     Q. What are we to understand by the seven seals with which it was sealed?
          - A. We are to understand that the first seal contains the things of the first
                thousand years, and the second also of the second thousand years,
                and so on until the seventh.
     Q. What are we to understand by the sounding of the trumpets, mentioned
          in the 8th chapter of Revelation?
          - A. We are to understand that as God made the world in six days, and on
                the seventh day he finished his work, and sanctified it, and also formed man
                out of the dust of the earth, even so, in the beginning of the seventh thousand
                years will the Lord God sanctify the earth, and complete the salvation of man,
                and judge all things, and shall redeem all things, except that which he hath not
                put into his power, when he shall have sealed all things, unto the end of all things;
                and the sounding of the trumpets of the seven angels are the preparing
                and finishing of his work, in the beginning of the seventh thousand years—
                the preparing of the way before the time of his coming.

I.   Eleazar Ben Asher Ha-Levi, was a Medieval collector of ancient record

     thirteenth and the beginning of the fourteenth century." 
Moses Gaster, Ph.D.,
     translated the first part of this Bodleian Library (Oxford) ms., titled:
    
Sefer (Sepher) ha-zikhronot (Sefer ha-Zikhronot)  There are minute descriptions
     of the descendants of Noah and the records state exactly how many children
     each of the Patriarchs had, beginning with Adam and Eve, including names
     of the wives of each of the Biblical personages.
  "(1) Adam begat three sons
     and three daughters, Cain and his twin wife Qalmana, Abel and his twin wife
     Deborah, and Seth and his twin wife Nōba. (2) And Adam, after he had begotten
     Seth, lived 700 years, and there were eleven sons and eight daughters born to him.
     These are the names of his sons: ‘Eli, Shēēl, Ṣurēi, ‘Almiel, Berokh, Ke‘al, Naḥath,
     Zarḥamah, Ṣisha, Māḥtel, and ‘Anat (###); and the names of his daughters are:
     Ḥavah, Giṭsh, Harē, Bikha, Zifath, Hēkhiah, Shaba, and ‘Azin.  Listed out of order:
     (11) Cain and his wife Temed dwelt in the land of Nod. And Cain knew his wife
     Tēmēd when he was fifteen years old, and she bore him Enoch, and he built seven
     cities and called the first Enoch, after the name of his son. (The names of the remaining
     six were): Maōlē, Lēed, Gēzeh, Yeshbah, Qeled, and Yēbab. (12) And after Enoch, Cain
     begat three sons, Ulaf, Lēzef, and Fuzal, and two daughters, Ṣēṭa and Maḥat. (13) And
     Enoch took Nība, the daughter of Shem, to wife, & she bore him Zēra, Qu‘ith, & Maddaf.
     And Zera begat Methushael, and
Methushael, Lemech. (14) And Lemech took two wives.
     Ada bore Jabal, the father of all those who dwell in tents, and Jubal, the father of all who
     play upon the harp and the reed-pipe. (15) Then the inhabitants of the land began to
     commit violence and to defile the wives of their neighbours, thus kindling the anger
     of the Lord. And they then began to play upon the harp and the reed-pipe, and to sport
     with every kind of song, corrupting the earth. This same Jubal discovered the science
     of music, whence arose all the melodies for the two above-named instruments. This is
     a great science, as I have explained in its proper place (above). (16) And it came to pass,
     when Jubal heard the prophecy of Adam concerning the two judgments about to come
     upon the world by means of the flood, the dispersion and fire, that he wrote down the
     science of music upon two pillars, one of fine white marble and the other of brick, so
     that in the event of the one melting and being destroyed by the waters, the other would
     be saved. (17) And Sillah bore Tubal Cain, who used to sharpen all instruments of iron
     for war, and worked in all manner of iron. He also invented the art of alloying lead and
     iron together, so as to temper the iron and to make the blade sharper. He also invented
     the pincers, the hammer, and the axe, and all instruments of iron. (18) The sister of Tubal
     Cain was Na‘amah. It was she who invented the art of weaving and sewing silk, wool,
     and flax, and the whole art of the fancy-worker and the weaver. Ṣillah also bore Miza
     and Tipa. Tubal was a worker in tin, lead, iron, copper, silver, and gold. Then men began
     to make graven images for their worship. (19) ‘Adah also bore Jabal, who was the father
     of those who dwell in tents and attend to the flock. He discovered the work appertaining
     to shepherds, and made tents and pens for the cattle, one for the sheep and another for
     the oxen, distinct from each other. He also invented the locks, as a safeguard to prevent
     robbers entering the house, like this, χ. (20) In the time of Enosh men were called
     princes, judges, and made gods, applying to them the name of God; and temples
     were made for them, but they were overthrown in the time of Re‘u.  Compare:
    
Genesis 4: 16-24.
  And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt
     in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.
[which according to modern revelation,
     would be located east of
Daviess County, Missouri. And Cain knew his wife;
     and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, & called  the name
     of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.
  And unto Enoch was born Irad:
     and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech.
     And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name
     of the other Zillah. And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents,
     and of such as have cattle. And his brother’s name was Jubal: he was the father
     of all such as handle the harp and organ. And Zillah, she also bare Tubal-cain,
     an instructor of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubal-cain
     was Naamah. . . .  Note: Cain apparently married two women, his twin wife
     Qalmana and his wife Temed,  Also, Cain's descendant Lamech took unto him
     two wives, Adah and Zillah.  This shows polygamy as the normal practice for
     the patriarchal unit of man,

D&C 107: 53  Enoch came out from the land of Cainan, the land of his fathers,
which was a land of righteousness in his day.
  Enoch journeyed from the land
of Cainan, by the sea east.   
Cainhannoch was a code name for "New York",
used during the time of persecution and hiding in early Church history.  Enoch
stood upon the place Mahujah and went to the mount Simeon.  From there,
Enoch beheld in the valley of Shum a great people which dwelt in tents, which
were the people of Shum.  Enoch looked towards the north of mount Simeon
and beheld the people of Canaan, which dwelt in tents.
  Enoch saw the people
of Canaan in a land barren and unfruitful, cursed with much heat and perpetual
barrenness.  Enoch beheld the land of Sharon, and the land of Enoch, and the
land of Omner, and the land of Heni, and the land of Shem, and the land of Haner,
and the land of Hanannihah, and all of their inhabitants.  There was a land that
came up out of the depth of the sea, in the time of Enoch.  There were mountains
and high places in the time of Enoch.  Enoch built a city that was called the City
of Holiness, even ZION.  Enoch met with Adam's posterity at Adam-ondi-Ahman,
located in Missouri, USA, now part of the North American continent.

Enoch  Moses 7: 13  And so great was the faith of Enoch that he led the people
of God, and their enemies came to battle against them; and he spake the word
of the Lord, and the earth trembled, and the mountains fled, even according
to his command; and the rivers of water were turned out of their course; and
the roar of the lions was heard out of the wilderness; and all nations feared
greatly, so powerful was the word of Enoch, and so great was the power of
the language which God had given him.
  There were giants of the land, during
the time of Enoch, and a curse went forth upon all people that fought against
God.  T
his appears as the initial time frame for the development and mutation
of dinosaurs and other distorted, abnormally deformed creatures, including
a blackness that came upon all of the children of Canaan. 
Moses 7: 22  And
Enoch also beheld the residue of the people which were the sons of Adam;
and they were a mixture of all the seed of Adam save it was the seed of Cain,
for the seed of Cain were black, and had not place among them.  God
cursed
the
  residue of the people during the time of the City of Enoch, and the power
of Satan was upon all the face of the earth, except for a few select righteous
posterity that survived until the time of Noah.

Residents of the City of Holiness, even ZION.  D&C 107: 57
These things were all written in the book of Enoch
, and are to
be testified of in due time.

Enoch all things, even unto the end of the world; and he saw the
day of the righteous, the hour of their redemption, and received
a fulness of joy . . .

righteousness unto the people of God.  And it came to pass in his days,
that he built a city that was called the City of Holiness, even ZION.
Moses 7: 21  And it came to pass that the Lord showed unto Enoch
all the inhabitants of the earth; and he beheld, and lo, Zion, in process
of time, was taken up into heaven.  And the Lord said unto Enoch:
Behold mine abode forever. 
Moses 7: 69  And Enoch and all his people
walked with God, and he dwelt in the midst of Zion; and it came to pass
that Zion was not, for God received it up into his own bosom; and from
thence went forth the saying, ZION IS FLED.

                  after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.  Sons
                  of Japheth were born after the Flood  
Genesis 10: 1.  Peopling
                  of the world by Gentile descendants of Japheth, prior to the days
                  of Peleg, constituted inheritance of lands within
Pangaea land
                  mass, after which physical upheavals of mountain ranges and
                  immediate continental drift, isolated "isles" of nations, within a

                  after his tongue, after their families, in their nations, occurred
                 
after Nimrod founded the beginning of the Kingdom of Babel,
                  circa 2300 B.C.  Shem, the son of Noah, the great high
                  priest, who lived from 2452 B.C. to 1852 B.C., appears to have kept

Abraham 1: 23-25] the husband of Egyptus.  Sons
                  of Ham and Egyptus were born after the Flood  
Genesis 10: 1.
Their
                  daughter, also named Egyptus, was the
"Mother of the King":
                  Pharaoh, who began the Patriarchal Royalty of the Pharaohs
                  of Egypt.  The worldwide Flood
[2344 B.C.], wiped out all previous
                  settlements in the Nile valley.  The first stone ('Step Pyramid')
                  built in Egypt, is either the remains of a pre flood building; or,
                  a constructed pyramid, begun no earlier than the time of the first
                  Pharaoh, the grandson of Ham, circa 2300 B.C.  Egyptian Royalty
                  timelines of Ancient Egypt, as shown by The British Museum,
                  are extrapolated, disjointed and controversial reconstructions
                  of surviving Egyptian dynastic records
, having no genealogical
                  credibility. 
Ham was [Genesis 10: 6-10] also the father of Cush,
                  who begat
Nimrod, the beginning of the Kingdom of Babel,
                  founded circa 2300 B.C.  Nimrod's tribal customs evolved into
                  city law (Code of Hammurabi) for the metropolis of Babylon.
                  The language taught by Noah to his posterity, was distorted
                  during the construction of the first Tower of Babel
Secret signs,
                  developed to identify groups of individuals, (within the different
                  classes of workers having various levels of skills required in
                  building the complex structure), could have initiated confusion,
                  with disagreement and labor unrest concerning any unequal work
                  compensation.  God, by the withdrawal of His spirit, caused the
                  scattering of the posterity of Japheth.  The
Book of Mormon,
                  (another
testament of Jesus Christ), in Ether 1: 6-37, confirms
                  migration of families returning back to the Western Hemisphere:
                  Jared and his
family, along with the family of his righteous brother
                 
Mahonri Moriancumer; with some others and their families.
                  [Jared and his brother came on to this continent from the confusion
                  and scattering at the Tower, and lived here more than a thousand years,
                  and covered the whole continent from sea to sea, with towns and cities . . .
                  J. Smith, Jr.]  This occurred after the days of PELEG (time period:  2253 B.C.
                  to 2014 B.C.), in whose days the earth was divided (

Flood Legends from Around the World . . . "The Cornish Tynners
hold a strong imagination, that in the withdrawing of Noahs floud
to the Sea, the same took his course from East to West, violently
breaking vp, and forcibly carrying with it, the earth, trees, and
Rocks, which lay any thing loosely, neere the vpper face of the
ground.  To confirme the likelihood of which supposed truth, they
doe many times digge vp whole and huge Timber trees which they
conceiue at that deluge to haue beene ouerturned and whelmed:"
Ether 13: 2  Confirms as fact that the Flood was worldwide in scope.
From the Book of Mormon, after the waters had receded from off the
face of this land (North and South America), it became a choice land
above all other lands, a chosen land of the Lord; wherefore the Lord
would have that all men should serve him who dwell upon the face thereof.
In a wider sense all of North and South America are Zion (HC 6: 318-19).
Moses 7: 43  Wherefore Enoch saw that Noah built an ark; and that
the Lord smiled upon it, and held it in his own hand; but upon the residue
of the wicked the floods came and swallowed them up.  Nevertheless,
it should be noted, that since the original altar used by Adam to offer
animal sacrifice, was still extant and identified by Joseph Smith, Jr.,
that the flood waters covering the earth must have been gradual in
process, in some areas, as it did not destroy all pre flood human artifacts.
At least, the area of Jackson Country, Missouri, USA was not destroyed,
suggesting a higher geological position, or raised elevation than at present.

Noah: Ark of Noah - Noah's Ark - Rainbow (set in Heaven) Rainbow: About Rainbows
Joseph Smith, Jr. stated
: [I have asked of the Lord concerning His coming; and while
asking the Lord, He gave a sign and said, "In the days of Noah I set a bow in the heavens
as a sign and token that in any year that the bow should be seen the Lord would not com
but there should be seed time and harvest during that year; but whenever you see the bow
withdrawn, it shall be a token that there shall be famine, pestilence, and great distress
among the nations, and that the coming of the Messiah is not far distant.
. . . .
Jesus Christ never did reveal to any man the precise time that He would come.
Go and read the Scriptures, and you cannot find anything that specifies the exact hour
He would come; and all that say so are false teachers.
]

for agricultural production, or seed time and harvest,  it did not exist in the sky,
prior to the time of the Flood.

Bible Patriarch Noah  D&C 107: 52  Noah was ten years old when
he was ordained under the hand of Methuselah.  Appeared after
death as the angel
Gabriel.  D&C 84: 14-15  Noah was a High Priest
in the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of the Son of God.

time period: 
2944 B.C. to 1994 B.C.
Lamech was 182 when Noah was born (
Genesis 5: 28-29).  Moses 8: 12
And Noah was four hundred and fifty years old, and begat Japheth; and
forty-two years afterward he begat Shem of her who was the mother of
Japheth, and when he was five hundred years old he begat Ham.
  And
Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the
earth.  [2344 B.C.] 
Archbishop James Ussher calculated the Flood date:
2349 B.C.
  Moses informs us that Noah lived after the flood 350 years;
making him 950 years old when he died (Gen. 9:28-29).  Noah
was 84
years old when Enos died, 176 when Cainan died, 234 when Mahalaleel
died, 366 when Jared died, 595 when Lamech died, and 600 when
Methuselah died.  We can see from this that Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel,
Jared, Methuselah, Lamech, and Noah all lived on the earth at the same
time; and that Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared, Methuselah and Lamech,
were all acquainted with both Adam and Noah.

     (10) And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. . . .
     (21) And the flood took place, and Noah went forth from the ark and offered
     sacrifices, and the Lord, smelling the sweet savour, said, 'I shall no more
     curse the earth and smite every living being, but if they sin against Me, I
     shall judge them by famine, sword, fire, pestilence, and earthquake, and
     I shall scatter them hither and thither. And I shall remember this for the
     inhabitants of the earth until the end. And it shall come to pass, when the
     end of the world shall have arrived, that the light shall cease and the
     darkness shall weep, and I shall revive the dead and awaken those who
     slumber in the dust, and Sheol will repay its debt, and Abadon return its
     portion, and I shall requite the wicked according to their deeds and judge
     between the flesh and the soul. And the world shall rest in quietness (peace),
     and I shall destroy death for ever. The grave shall close its mouth and the
     earth shall no longer be without produce, nor shall its inhabitants be rooted
     out nor be defiled by iniquitous judgments, for there shall be a new earth
     and new heavens for an everlasting habitation.'
    
Next: XXVII. (1) The sons of Jepheth were Gomer, Magog, Madai, Yavan,
     Tubal, Meshekh, and Tiras; and the sons of Gomar were Ashkenaz, Riphath,
     and Togarmah; and the sons of Yavan, Elishah, Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.
     (2) The sons of Gomer were Ṭeled, Lud, Deber, and Led; the sons of Magog,
     Qashē, Ṭīpa, Paruṭa, ‘Amiel, Pinḥas, Glaza, and Samanākh; the sons of Dedan,
     Shalom, Filg, and Ṭufliṭa; the children of Tubal, Fantnya and Aṭipa; the children
     of Tiras, Maakh, Ṭabel, Bal’anah, Shampla, Mēah, and Ēlash; the children of Melech,
     Aburdad, Horad, and Boṣrah. The children of Ashkenaz were Vekhal, Sardana, and
     Anakh; the children of Hēri, Eṣudad, D‘ath, Dēpasēat, and Ḥanokh; the children
     of Togarmah, Abihud, Shāfaṭ, and Yaftir; the children of Elishah, Zaaq, Qenath,
     and Mastizrida; the children of Zipthai, Mafshiel, Ṭina, Avla, and Jinn. The children
     of Tisai were, Maql, Luon, Ṣilagtaba; the children of Dodanim, Iteb, Bēath, and Faneg.
     And of these the inhabitants of the land of Persia, Media, and those of the isles of the sea
     were divided. (3) And Faneg, son of Dodanim, was the first to ride the ships of the sea.
     At that time a third part of the land of Romidath was flooded. And his sons subdued
     Yedid; and the sons of Magog subdued Dēgel, and the sons of Madai subdued Biṭṭo;
     the sons of Yavan, Ṣēel; the sons of Tubal, Paḥath; the sons of Meshek, Nephṭī;
     the sons of Tiras, R; the sons of Dinim, Gudah. And Riphath without his sons
     conquered Gd; and the sons of Riphath, Boṣrah; and the sons of Targmah,
     Phut; the sons of Elishah, Ṭablo; the sons of Tarshish, Meriba; and the sons of Kittim ...;
     and the sons of Ddanim, Qaduba. Then did men begin to till the ground, and when
     the land was parched, they cried to God, and He caused a fructifying rain to descend.
     And it came to pass, when the rain descended, the bow was seen in the clouds.
     When the inhabitants perceived the sign of the covenant, they blessed the Lord.
    
Next: XXVIII (1) These are the generations of Noah in their lands, according to their
     families, and according to their tongues. After the flood they were spread over
     the earth according to their nations. . . . while the children of Japheth appointed
     Pinḥas to be a prince and a chief over them. . . .
    
(2) These three chiefs came and took counsel together to assemble all their
     people while Noah their father was yet alive. And all the people accordingly
     drew near to them, and were as one body, and peace reigned in the land. (3) It came
     to pass, 640 years after Noah went out of the ark, that each chief numbered his people.
     Pinḥas numbered the children of Japheth and the children of Gomar, and the total
     number of those which Pinḥas numbered was 5,800; that of the children of Magog
     under him, 6,200; that of Madai under him, 5,700; that of the children of Tubal, 9,400;
     and the children of Meshech, 7,200; the children of Riphath numbered 11,500; those
     of Togarmah, 14,400; those of Elishah, 14,900; of Tarshish, 12,100; of Kittim, 18,300;
     of Dodanim, 17,700. The number of the children of Japheth, the men of war and the
     armour-bearers, as Pinḥas their prince had numbered them was 142,000, besides
     women and children. . . . (5) And the number of the children of Noah was 714,100.
     All these were numbered during the lifetime of Noah, and Noah lived after the flood
     350 years. And all the days of Noah were 950 years, and he died.

     are the children of Cush, Sheba, Tudan, Vabni (?), Māipn, Tins, Sili, Ṭiluf, Gilug,
     Lipukh. The children of Canaan were Ṣidon, Andam, Reṣin, Simim, rin, Nimigim,
     Ḥamatim, Nipim, Ṭilas, Ilag, and Cushim. Cush begat Nimrod, who was the first giant
     in pride before God. Misraim begat Ludim, ‘Anamim, Lehabim, Naftuḥim, Pathrosim,
     Kasluḥim, and Kaftorim. These began to build the following cities: Sidon and its
     villages, Risn, Kiūza, Mazāger, Ashqalon, Debir, Qamo, Tiln, Lakhish, Sodom,
     Gomorrah, Admah, and Ṣebim.
     Next: XXVIII (1) These are the generations of Noah in their lands, according to their
     families, and according to their tongues. After the flood they were spread over the
     earth according to their nations. The children of Ham then went and appointed
     Nimrod to be a prince and a chief over them; . . .
And the children of Ham appointed
     for themselves Yoqtan as their prince and chief.  Research Note:  This appears to be
     a distortion in the record, as the children of Ham had already appointed Nimrod;
     whereas,
Joktan is a later name in the lineage of Shem, noted as son of Heber.
     [In Pseudo-Philo's account (ca. 70), Joktan was first made prince over the children
     of Shem, just as
Nimrod and Phenech were princes over the children of Ham

     and Japheth, respectively.]
     . . . (2) These three chiefs came and took counsel together to assemble all their
     people while Noah their father was yet alive. And all the people accordingly
     drew near to them, and were as one body, and peace reigned in the land. (3)
     It came to pass, 640 years after Noah went out of the ark, that each chief
     numbered his people. . . . (4) Nimrod the chief numbered the children of
     Ham under his sway, and found them to be 12,600; the children of Misraim
     under him were, 24,900; the children of Phut, 27,700; of Canaan, 32,900; of
     Sheba, 4,300 (?); of Ḥavilah, 24,300; of Sabta, 25,300; of Ra‘amah, 30,600;
     of Sabtecha, 46,400. And the number of the children of Ham, according to
     the numbering of Nimrod the prince, was 492,000 valiant men who went
     out to war, besides the women and children. . . . (5) And the number of
     the children of Noah was 714,100. All these were numbered during the
     lifetime of Noah, and Noah lived after the flood 350 years. And all the
     days of Noah were 950 years, and he died.

About 15 Jubilees scrolls written in Hebrew were found at Qumran. . . .
     And in the twenty-fifth [1205 A.M.] jubilee Noah took to himself a wife, and
     her name was Emzara, the daughter of Rake'el, the daughter of his father's
     brother, in the first year in the fifth week [1207 A.M.]: and in the third year
     thereof she bare him Shem, in the fifth year thereof [1209 A.M.] she bare him
     Ham, and in the first year in the sixth week [1212 A.M.] she bare him Japheth.     

     And lawlessness increased on the earth and all flesh corrupted its way,
     alike men and cattle and beasts and birds and everything that walks on
     the earth - all of them corrupted their ways and their orders, and they
     began to devour each other, and lawlessness increased on the earth
     and every imagination of the thoughts of all men (was) thus evil
     continually. . . .
     And every one sold himself  to work iniquity and to shed much blood,
     and the earth was filled with iniquity. And after this they sinned against
     the beasts and birds, and all that moves and walks on the earth: and much
     blood was shed on the earth, and every imagination and desire of men
     imagined vanity and evil continually.

     Biblical statements concerning the earth being corrupt, with all flesh
     upon the earth being corrupted, are mentioned during the time of the
     Patriarch Noah, 2944 to 1994 B.C.  There were giants on the earth
     in those days that attempted to take away the life of Noah, indicating
     from Holy Scripture, the time frame for the worldwide culmination of
     the development and mutation of dinosaurs, plants and other distorted,
     abnormally deformed creatures.  The
Flood at Noah’s Time appears as
     a gift from God, a baptism of the whole earth, to save all mankind and
     all flesh also, from genetic destruction and deformed mutations.

     All human society was without affection, and they hated their own blood.
     Among all the workmanship of God's hands, there has never been such
     great wickedness.  The sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they
     were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.  In other
     words, men who were baptized into the ancient church, rejected their own
     priesthood responsibilities, intentionally marrying wives with attractive,
     physical beauty, that were spiritually devoid of faith in God.

    
Book of Jasher: Chapter 4 And all the sons of men departed from the ways
     of the Lord in those days as they multiplied upon the face of the earth with
     sons and daughters, and they taught one another their evil practices and they
     continued sinning against the Lord. And every man made unto himself a god,
     and they robbed and plundered every man his neighbor as well as his relative,
     and they corrupted the earth, and the earth was filled with violence. And their
     judges and rulers went to the daughters of men and took their wives by force
     from their husbands according to their choice, and the sons of men in those
     days took from the cattle of the earth, the beasts of the field and the fowls of
     the air, and taught the mixture of animals of one species with the other, in
     order therewith to provoke the Lord; and God saw the whole earth and it was
     corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted its ways upon earth, all men and all animals.

     over 3 billion people could easily have been on the earth at the time of Noah."

     notes "And Faneg, son of Dodanim, was the first to ride the ships of the sea";
     the children of Dodanim, Iteb, Beath, and Faneg. 
Milesian ancestrial records
     show
Magog, not Dodanim, as the father of Baath, Jobhath and Fathochta.
     It is obvious some creative individual (s) in the past, tried to establish Biblical
     connections to Ireland's historical records, using apparent Irish pedigree names.

     External evidence from non Irish sources, historically compared with the ancient
     Irish pedigree's internal evidence, eliminates earlier
Japhetic connections.
     A study of Irish source records, includes t
he "Line of Heremon", from Baoth
     to Milesius, which appears in fact as an anti-Semitic rewriting of Biblical text,
     using Bible analogy into a "gentile" pedigree; such as "In his youth Gaodhal
     was stung in the neck by a serpent and was immediately brought to Moses,
     who by laying his rod upon the wounded place instantly cured him . . ."  Niul
     being "invited into Egypt by Pharaoh the King; who gave him the land of Campus
     Cyruset, near the Red Sea, to inhabit" is an apparent rerun of Abraham going
     down into Egypt.  This carries down in the recorded pedigree of Lamhfionn, for
     "Ireland, which was the place destined for their future and lasting abode and
     settlement; and that not they but their posterity after three hundred years should
     arrive there."  Thus, a disjointed rewrite of Abraham's journey and promise to
     him and his posterity, to possess the land of Canaan, to which they later returned,
     or the Exodus when Moses was 80 years old.

H.  Louis Bourguet (1678-1742), listed in Dictionary of Scientific Biography,
     Vol. XV, published by the American Council of Learned Societies, made a
     philological investigation of the Etruscan alphabet (ancient pre-Roman Italy),
     and was convinced it derived from ancient Hebrew.  He studied Hebrew and
     the Mishnah with a Rabbi.  Louis Bourguet believed in the common origin of
     all peoples and languages and questioned the presumed great age and isolation
     of the people of China.  He declared that the great world wide Flood was but
     the amplification of normal processes and the "exceptional convergence,
     ordained by God, of ordinary causes."  Louis Bourguet explored fossil sites
     throughout Europe, suggesting they were from animal and vegetable origins.
     The Testimony of Archaeology notes: "Both the Hebrew, the Samaritan,
     the Greek writings current in Palestine during the two centuries before
     Christ, and the old Babylonian traditions, assert a transmission of writings
     about creation down from the beginning of time to Enoch and Noah."
     The kept genealogical pedigrees therefore suggest language origination
     and later distortions of a pure universal language that began to fragment
     with population movements and family group isolation, in the time period
     of circa 2944 B.C. to 1994 B.C. and later.  This is what credible written
     evidence suggests, within the created and preserved ancient genealogies.

I.  "There is definite evidence that at one time, and I am convinced it
     was in antediluvian days since the time of Adam, the climate of the
     earth was just as Elder Parley P. Pratt and President John Taylor
     have described it.  Evidence is found in the Arctic that tropical, or
     semi-tropical plants, grew there in abundance.  The frozen animals
     spoken of by Sir Henry H. Howorth were frozen at the time of the
     flood when the climatic conditions of the earth were changed . . . ."

     The journal
Nature news, published online on 31 May 2006, notes
     that a "core of sediment pulled from the bottom of the Arctic Ocean
     has confirmed" (that at some period in the past), "the North Pole
     was as warm as a balmy summer day." . . . "it also seems that the
     North Pole began to cool at about the same time as the Antarctic.
     This timing suggests that climate was being driven by a global factor,
     such as atmospheric levels of greenhouse gases, rather than some-
     thing more local, such as geological upheaval."  . . . "the atmosphere
     at the time was exceptionally rich in greenhouse gases . . . amplified
     by an additional factor — possibly heat-trapping stratospheric clouds
     or hurricane-induced ocean mixing."  Excluding the false, incorrect time
     periods, scientific
confirmation is given of an abrupt worldwide Flood.
    
CBS News SCI-TECH online 31 May 2006, includes: "Imagine a world
     where there are dense sequoia trees and cypress trees like in Florida
     that ring the Arctic Ocean . . . Researchers are not sure what caused
     the sudden boost of carbon dioxide that set the greenhouse effect on
     broil.  Possible culprits could be huge releases of methane from the
     ocean, gigantic continent-sized burning of trees, or lots of volcanic
     eruptions. "

     "We are led to believe, then, that in the beginning the mountains
     were not as high as they are now . . . When the valleys are exalted
     it will be the natural result of the mountains being debased or made
     low.  In this way the earth will be restored to its primitive condition."

According to
The Book Of Jubilees, the wife of Shem was Sedeqetelebab,
who appears, by name designation, as a righteous and faithful wife.
The main Hebrew word for righteousness is sedeq, which constitutes
the second half of the compound proper noun Melchizedek (Hebrew
malko-sedeq, "king of righteousness"), who is a type of Christ
(see Genesis 14:8; Psalm 110:4; Hebrews 7:15—17; Alma 13:14—18;
D&C 107:1—4). . . . The Hebrew word sedeq is also associated with
the concept of just weights and measures in Leviticus 19:35—36:
"Ye shall do no unrighteousness ['awel] in judgment [mišpat], in
meteyard [middah], in weight [mišqal], or in measure [me›urah].
Just [sedeq] balances, just [sedeq] weights, a just [sedeq] ephah,
and a just [sedeq] hin, shall ye have: I am the Lord your God,
which brought you out of the land of Egypt." This "just measuring"
connotation of sedeq helps us understand the synonymous meanings
of the two parallel phrases in 3 Nephi 14:2 and Matthew 7:2 JST . . .

quenched the violence of fire.  And thus, having been approved of God,
he was ordained an high priest after the order of the covenant which
God made with Enoch.  Shem, the great pre/post flood High Priest heir
of Noah, was ordained an high priest after the order of the covenant
which God made with the pre-flood High Priest Enoch; for as a child,
Shem feared God.  Shem stopped the mouths of lions, and quenched
the violence of fire, prior to the Flood, since after the Flood there was
no general wickedness left and there was only a minimal number of
lions remaining upon the earth.

Worthy Melchizedek priesthood holders obtain the key of knowledge:
the fullness of the
Scriptures D&C 84: 19  And this greater priesthood
administereth the gospel and holdeth the
key of the mysteries of
the kingdom, even the key of the knowledge of God. 
D&C 128: 11
Now the great and grand secret of the whole matter, and the summum
bonum
of the whole subject that is lying before us, consists in obtaining
the powers of the Holy Priesthood.  For him to whom these keys are
given there is no difficulty in obtaining a knowledge
of facts in relation
to the salvation of the children of men, both as well for the dead as for
the living. 
D&C 107: 2-4 . . .  Melchizedek was such a great high priest.
Before his day it was called the Holy Priesthood, after the Order of
the Son of God. 
But out of respect or reverence to the name of the
Supreme Being, to avoid the too frequent repetition of his name, they,
the church, in ancient days, called that priesthood after Melchizedek, or
the Melchizedek Priesthood. 
JST Genesis 14: 25-40  And this Melchizedek,
having thus established righteousness, was called the King of Heaven
[GOD] by his people, or, in other words, the King of Peace [GOD]; in
the similitude of Jesus Christ: the Messiah -
Psalms 110.

     (5) The children of Shem were Elam, Ashur, Arpakhshad, Lud, and Aran.
     The sons of Ashur were Gezrn, Ishai; . . .
     Next: XXVIII (1) These are the generations of Noah in their lands, according to their
     families, and according to their tongues. After the flood they were spread over the
     earth according to their nations. The children of Ham then went and appointed
     Nimrod to be a prince and a chief over them; . . .
And the children of Ham appointed
     for themselves Yoqtan as their prince and chief.  Research Note:  This appears to be
     a distortion in the record, as the children of Ham had already appointed Nimrod;
     whereas,
Joktan is a later name in the lineage of Shem, noted as son of Heber.
     [Next: XXIX (6) And Yoqtan, the head of the princes, answered and said,
     'We shall not do this, . . .]  [In Pseudo-Philo's account (ca. 70), Joktan was first
     made prince over the children of Shem, just as
Nimrod and Phenech were
     princes over the children of
Ham and Japheth, respectively.]
     . . . (2) These three chiefs came and took counsel together to assemble all their
     people while Noah their father was yet alive. And all the people accordingly
     drew near to them, and were as one body, and peace reigned in the land. (3)
     It came to pass, 640 years after Noah went out of the ark, that each chief
     numbered his people. . . . (5) And the number of the children of Noah was 714,100.
     All these were numbered during the lifetime of Noah, and Noah lived after the flood
     350 years. And all the days of Noah were 950 years, and he died.  [N.B.--Shem has
     evidently dropped out in the MS.; suggesting origins from non Semitic sources.]

     And Shem dwelt with his father Noah, and he built a city close to his father on
     the mountain, and he too called its name after the name of his wife Sedeqetelebab.

C.  Shem was
Melchizedek.  He received the priesthood through the lineage
     of his fathers, even till Noah; and from Noah till Enoch, through the lineage of
     their fathers; and from Enoch to Abel, who received the priesthood by the hand
     of his father Adam, who was the first man.  Abraham, when speaking of the holy
     priesthood which he obtained from Melchizedek, notes that: "It was conferred
     upon me from the fathers; it came down from the fathers, from the beginning of
     time, yea, even from the beginning, or before the foundation of the earth, down
     to the present time, even the right of the firstborn, or the first man, who is Adam,
     or first father, through the fathers unto me."  Thus, Melchizedek received his
     priesthood through the lineage of his fathers, even till Noah, [means my priesthood
     came down in time from Adam to Noah, my father]; from Noah till Enoch through
     the lineage of their fathers [means my priesthood lineage descended from Adam
     via
Enoch to Noah, my father, through the lineage of their fathers]; for this
     priesthood was received from Enoch to Abel, who received the priesthood by
     the hand of his father Adam.  The priesthood lineage is very clearly recorded:
     a descending pedigree lineage
, anciently from the man Adam, to Abel his son,
     (who was a brother of Seth, the son of Adam: the lineage ancestry of Noah).

D.  According to the priesthood records of the patriarchs, Adam ordained Seth,
     Enos, Mahalaleel, Jared, Enoch and Methuselah.  Lamech, the father of Noah,
     was ordained by Seth, his 5th great-grandfather, in the year 3094 B.C.  Noah
     was ten years old in 2934 B.C., when he was ordained under the hand of his
     grandfather Methuselah.  Methuselah was ordained by his 5th great-grandfather
     Adam, in the year 3213 B.C.  Shem (Melchizedek), the great high priest, received
     his priesthood, through the lineage of his father Noah.

     the daughter of Susan, the daughter of Elam, and she bare him a son in
     the third year in this week, [1375 A.M.] and he called his name Kainam.
     And the son grew, and his father taught him writing, and he went to seek
     for himself a place where he might seize for himself a city. And he found
     a writing which former (generations) had carved on the rock, and he read
     what was thereon, and he transcribed it and sinned owing to it; for it
     contained the teaching of the Watchers in accordance with which they
     used to observe the omens of the sun and moon and stars in all the signs
     of heaven. And he wrote it down and said nothing regarding it; for he
     was afraid to speak to Noah about it lest he should be angry with him
     on account of it. And in the thirtieth jubilee, [1429 A.M.] in the second

Presently, there is scientific knowledge about continental drift of the
     earth's land surface around the inner liquid core [Continental Drift, listed
     on page 353, under
Plate Tectonics, Academic American Encyclopedia,
     Vol. 15, (1980)]. 
Helaman 12: 15  And thus, according to his word the earth
     goeth back, and it appeareth unto man that the sun standeth still; yea,
     and behold, this is so; for surely it is the earth that moveth and not the sun.

     As recorded in
D&C 133: 21-25, the Lamb of God, (the Only Begotten Son
     Jesus Christ, or Jehovah), shall return to the earth: And he shall utter his voice
     out of Zion, and he shall speak from Jerusalem, and his voice shall be heard
     among all people; And it shall be a voice as the voice of many waters, and as
     the voice of a great thunder, which shall break down the mountains, and the
     valleys shall not be found. He shall command the great deep, and it shall be
     driven back into the north countries, and the islands shall become one land;
     And the land of Jerusalem and the land of Zion shall be turned back into their
     own place, and the earth shall be like as it was in the days before it was divided.
     And the Lord, even the Savior, shall stand in the midst of his people, and shall
     reign over all flesh.  This certainly is an indication of an immediate and intensive
     worldwide continental drift.  The land of Zion [Jackson County, Missouri, USA]
     and the land of Jerusalem shall be turned back into their own place, and the
     earth shall be like it was in the days before it was divided [during the days of
     Peleg, 2253 to 2014 B.C.].  All of the Earth's geologic formation changes have
     occurred within a limited time period of a few thousand years. 
D&C 77: 12

D.  What about Continental Drift?  Prior to division - adjustment of land forms,
     according to Genesis 2: 10-14, a river went out of Eden to water the garden;
     and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.  The name of
     the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah,
     where there is gold; And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium
     and the onyx stone.  And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same
     is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.  And the name of the third
     river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria.  And the
     fourth river is Euphrates.  The mountains of Adam-ondi-Ahman, by rainfall
     or massive underground sources, brought forth a river that went out of the
     Garden of Eden, to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and
     became into four heads, within the unified confines of one worldwide land
     mass area; being an apparent elevated area, central to the location of the
     current State of Missouri, in the USA, North American Continent (A.D. 2007).
     Valley of Adam-ondi-Ahman, reconstructed with connections to
present day
     gold mining and Pangaea, shows a pattern of finds from the United States,
     flowing down through Middle and Central America, parallel South American
     and African continental connections, to
gold deposits within South Africa;
     to
India,  Indonesia  and Australia; also, tributary connection into northwest
     United States, Canada, Alaska, to Russian Siberia and Middle East regions.
     Biblical and other texts, reveal the
identification of regions by large river
     systems, indicating the ancient use of these waterways for transport and
     travel (
D&C 61).  Behold, I, the Lord, in the beginning blessed the waters;
     but in the last days, by the mouth of my servant John, I cursed the waters.
     Wherefore, the days will come that no flesh shall be safe upon the waters.
     And it shall be said in days to come that none is able to go up to the land
     of Zion upon the waters, but he that is upright in heart.  And, as I, the Lord,
     in the beginning cursed the land, even so in the last days have I blessed it,
     in its time, for the use of my saints, that they may partake the fatness thereof.
     The mention of gold and other precious metals gave sign posts to the posterity
     of Adam, for determination of location in relation to various family migrations,
     from the
region of the first human homestead, situated near the garden of Eden.
     And Adam and Eve, his wife, called upon the name of the Lord, and they heard
     the voice of the Lord from the way toward the Garden of Eden, speaking unto
     them, and they saw him not; for they were shut out from his presence. . . .
     And from that time forth, the sons and daughters of Adam began to divide
     two and two in the land, and to till the land, and to tend flocks, and they
     also begat sons and daughters.

Hagar,
(the handmaiden of Sarah) and
Keturah D&C 132: 34-35, 37  God
commanded Abraham, and Sarah gave Hagar to Abraham to wife.
And why did she do it?  Because this was the law; and from Hagar sprang
many people.  This, therefore, was fulfilling, among other things, the promises.
Was Abraham, therefore, under condemnation?  Verily I say unto you, Nay;
for I, the Lord, commanded it.  . . . Abraham received concubines, and they bore
him children; and it was accounted unto him for righteousness, because they were
given unto him, and he abode in my law; as Isaac also and Jacob did none other
things than that which they were commanded; and because they did none other
things than that which they were commanded, they have entered into their
exaltation, according to the promises, and sit upon thrones, and are not angels
but are gods.

Terah was 70 when Haran and Abraham were born (Gen. 11:26).

130 years old.  This conclusion is drawn from a variety of scriptures.

[2344 B.C.]
to the birth of Abraham was 282/342 years.  Genesis 16: 16  And Abram
was fourscore and six years old [1976 B.C./1916 B.C.], when Hagar bare

C. 
Robert Henry Charles, D. Litt., D.D., discusses the Book of Jubilees, in the
     book: The Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha of the Old Testament in English
     published in 1913.  He mentions it was written in Hebrew by a Pharisee,
     between 109 B.C. and 105 B.C., largely based on earlier books and traditions.
     The word: Tina = Tanais, or Don, appears in Chapter 8, verses 12, 16, 25, 28;
     also, Chapter 9, verses 2 and 7, relating to the divisions and subdivisions of
     land amongst the children and grandchildren of Noah.

     "And there came forth on the writing as Shem's lot, the middle of the earth,
     which he should take as an inheritance for himself and for his sons for the
     generations of eternity, from the middle of the mountain range of Rafa
     [Ural Mountains], from the mouth of the water from the river Tina, and his
     portion goes towards the west through the midst of this river, and it extends
     till it reaches the water of the abysses, out of which this river goes forth
     and pours its waters into the sea Meat [Maeotis or Sea of Azov], and this
     river flows into the great sea.". . .

     "And for Japheth came forth the third portion beyond the river Tina
     to the north of the outflow of its waters, and it extends northeasterly
     to the whole region of Gog and to all the country east thereof.  And it
     extends northerly to the north, and it extends to the mountains of Qelt
     [the Celts] towards the north . . ."

     "And Shem also divided amongst his sons. . ."
     "And for Arpashshad [Arphaxad 2,342 to 1,904 B.C.], came forth
     the third portion, all the land of the region of the Chaldees to the east
     of the Euphrates, [Chaldea = An ancient region in southern Babylonia
     along the Euphrates River and the Persian Gulf in southwestern Asia],
     bordering on the Red Sea, and all the waters of the desert close to the
     tongue of the sea which looks towards Egypt, all the land of Lebanon
     and Sanir and Amana to the border of the Euphrates."

     Since the Biblical genealogies show patriarchal descent as: Noah to Shem,
     to Arphaxad, to Salah, to Eber (the Hebrews), to Peleg, to Reu, to Serug,
     to Nahor, to Terah and finally to Abram [Abraham]; the promises given
     to Abraham, to have the land of Canaan for an everlasting possession,
     appear to be a reconfirmation of the legal heir descent, the patriarchal
     right of inheritance, granted by Shem to Arphaxad/Arpashshad, his son;
     Arphaxad being the 6th great-grandfather of Abraham.

D.  Merchant activities of the Jews, back to the time of Abraham, are
     noted in the
Journal of Near Eastern Studies, Vol. 17, No. 1 (Jan., 1958),
     pp. 28-31.  In the article "
Abraham and the Merchants of Ura", author
     Cyrus H. Gordon mentions that for some strange reason, little if any
     attention has been paid to the repeated statement in Genesis that the
     patriarchs were in Palestine for trading.  The patriarchs went abroad
     to do business, as Abraham comes from beyond the Euphrates, visits
     Egypt, fights with kinglets from as far off as Elam; i.e., it is clear that
     Abraham was a merchant prince.  Settling down in a foreign area would
     be part of merchant activities of the extended patriarchal family, to
     provide a sure chain of command, with bona fide and honest individuals.

     Harran [Haran], was the place of Abraham's first settlement on leaving
     Ur of the Chaldees, and was a trading center of great importance, as noted
     in Assyrian inscriptions.  [Also called Charran.]  Abraham's "wandering
     was not nomadism in the Bedouin sense, but was an occupational feature
     of tamkarutum, 'trading abroad'.  The patriarchal narratives, far from
     reflecting Bedouin life, are highly international in their milieu, in a setting
     where a world order enabled men to travel far and wide for business enterprise."

     were sisters (Genesis 46:12; Numbers 26:19–21).  From Pharez descended
     Salmon, who married the Canaanite woman Rahab, who had been spared
     with her father's household during the Israelite destruction of the city of
     Jericho in Joshua's day.  Their son was Boaz, who married the Moabitess
     Ruth, who became the great-grandmother of King David and, consequently,
     of all the kings of Judah and of Jesus Christ himself (Ruth 4:18–22;
     Matthew 1:2–16).  While most of the kings of Judah from whom Christ is
     descended married women of the same tribe or of other Israelite tribes,
     this is not true of all of them.  For example, Rehoboam, son of Solomon,
     was born of a woman named Naamah, who was an Ammonitess (1 Kings 14:21,
     31; 2 Chronicles 12:13).  Genesis 40:10 informs us that Simeon had a Canaanite
     wife, but nothing is said of the other wives of Jacob's sons or their origins,
     although it seems likely that they also married outside Abraham's kin group.
     The children and grandchildren of Jacob who are mentioned in the biblical
     account number seventy, but this does not include daughters and granddaughters.
     Although nothing is specifically said on the matter, it is not unreasonable to
     assume that Jacob's people included servants and their families as well.9
     One thing, however, seems certain: all of Jacob's grandchildren inherited
     their mtDNA from their mothers, who were likely non-Israelite."

About 15 Jubilees scrolls written in Hebrew were found at Qumran. . . .
     And in the sixth week, in the second year thereof, Rebecca bare to Isaac
     two sons, Jacob and Esau, and [2046 A.M.] Jacob was a smooth and upright
     man, and Esau was fierce, a man of the field, and hairy, and Jacob dwelt in
     tents. And the youths grew, and Jacob learned to write; but Esau did not learn,
     for he was a man of the field and a hunter, and he learnt war, and all his deeds
     were fierce. And Abraham loved Jacob, but Isaac loved Esau. And Abraham saw
     the deeds of Esau, and he knew that in Jacob should his name and seed be called;
     and he called Rebecca and gave commandment regarding Jacob, for he knew
     that she (too) loved Jacob much more than Esau.

Ensign magazine, June 1971, p. 100  Patriarch Eldred G. Smith - LDS Church:
     When
a person receives a patriarchal blessing, he is entitled to receive
     a pronouncement of the
blessings of Israel, or a declaration of the tribe
     of Israel through which his
blessings shall come.  This is the right to the
     blessings
of those recorded in the book of remembrance started in the
     days of
Adam.  This does not mean that all the nations of the earth will
     become literal descendants of Abraham, though his seed
may be scattered
     in
all nations, but as it says, all shall receive the blessings through those
     who are the seed of Abraham and shall be accounted his seed, and rise up
     and bless him as their father. (See
Abraham 2: 10)  If members of the Church
     are literal descendants of Abraham, they will receive such a
blessing.   If
     they are not literal descendants of Abraham and join the Church and receive
     the gospel, they shall receive the priesthood
blessings
, even eternal life,
     through those who are of Israel or which would be referred to as by adoption.

The bet 'ab or household was also the legal base of society.  The extended

     Within the clan the judicial "elders" or judges were the heads of households

         what it meant.  I went through a town called
Cha[d]tburn [Chatburn],
         beyond
Clitheroe, [Lancashire, England].  I went through the streets
         of that town feeling as I never before felt in my life.  My hair would
         rise on my head as I walked through the streets, and I did not then
         know what was the matter with me.  I pulled off my hat, and felt that
         I wanted to pull off my shoes, and I did not know what to think of it.

         When I returned, I mentioned the circumstance to brother Joseph,
         who said, "Did you not understand it?  That is a place where some
         of the old Prophets travelled and dedicated that land, and their
         blessing fell upon you." 
Acts 10  Peter in a vision is commanded
         to take the gospel to the Gentiles, which was after the death of
         Jesus Christ, who lived thirty and three years.  About ten or more
         years later, circa A.D. 44, would be the approximate time for this
         dedication to occur.  Genealogical pedigree attachments to the Kings
         of Britain, noted extensively on Internet online pedigrees, are not
         validated.   They are legendary fabrications, placed incorrectly within
         historical settings.  Any British Gentile personal intimate contacts or
         intermarriages, with early Christian Jewish church members would
         have been forbidden and prohibited, prior to circa A.D. 45.

Samaritan: History and Origin
Samaritans have insisted that they are direct descendants of the Northern Israelite
tribes of Ephraim and
Manasseh, who survived the destruction of the Northern kingdom
of Israel by the Assyrians in 722 BCE.  The inscription of Sargon II records the deportation
of a relatively small proportion of the Israelites (27,290, according to the annals),
so it is quite possible that a sizable population remained that could identify
themselves as Israelites, the term that the Samaritans prefer for themselves.

A.  The ancient
Books of the Bible, compared with Mormon Archaeology,
     invalidate the documentary hypothesis theories, traditionally known as:
     J, E, P, and D; for the Torah and the Deuteronomy history, from Joshua
     to Kings.  Some modern historians incorrectly state that the Torah
     was gradually recorded as the Hebrew Bible, between the 5th century
     B.C. and the 2nd century B.C.  Clearly, internal source evidence from
     the
Pearl of Great Price, the OT - NT and the Book of Mormon, suggest
     primary source documents, or copies thereof, going back to the time of
     Adam and (Eve - the Mother of all Living), were readily available to
     
Moses, who then wrote or copied them for himself and other Israelites.
     The
list of biblical figures identified in extra-biblical sources is compelling.
     Additional validation of the Bible, as a surviving primary source document,

     is made by the Joseph Smith, Jr. Translation of the Bible.  Words added
     and corrections made, restore the original formation and sense of ancient
     scribes and prophets, including technical details from Genesis to
Revelation.
    
Joseph Smith, Jr. said, [I believe the Bible as it read when it came from the pen
     of the original writers. Ignorant translators, careless transcribers, or designing and
     corrupt priests have committed many errors. As it read, Gen. 6:6, "It repented the
     Lord that he had made man on the earth"; also, Num. 23:19, "God is not a man,
     that he should lie; neither the Son of man, that he should repent"; which I do not
     believe. But it ought to read, "It repented Noah that God made man." This I believe,
     and then the other quotation stands fair. If any man will prove to me, by one passage
     of Holy Writ, one item I believe to be false, I will renounce and disclaim it as far as I
     promulgated it..]

until the time of The Exodus:
Stations of the Exodus.  He initiated the
Tribal Allotments of Israel for the land of Canaan.

life:

Book of Joshua: Book of Joshua - Book of Jasher 90  And at the end of two years,
Joshua the son of Nun died, one hundred and ten years old, and the time which
Joshua judged Israel was twenty-eight years, and Israel served the Lord all the
days of his life.
  And the other affairs of Joshua and his battles and his reproofs
with which he reproved Israel, and all which he had commanded them, and the
names of the cities which the children of Israel possessed in his days, behold
they are written in the book of the words of Joshua to the children of Israel,
and in the book of the wars of the Lord, which Moses and Joshua and the
children of Israel had written. And the children of Israel buried Joshua
in the border of his inheritance, in Timnath-serach, which was given
to him in Mount Ephraim.

religion:
Joshua was a true and faithful friend of the prophet Moses and his brother
Aaron.  Joshua saved the life of
Rahab, daughter and father's household,
in the City of Jericho.  Dynastic contacts of Gentile Royalty with the priesthood
royalty and military descendants of Abraham, are noted in the national history
of the Jews, at the time of
Balaam.  The concept of the God-Man Messiah:
"there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel",
was conveyed through commercial enterprise to the various gentile nations,
the source from which the Greeks created their own fabulous legends:
historic fiction handed down within Greek Mythology.

D.  What about Continental Drift?  The immediate high velocity amplification
     of "continental drift" would allow the appearance of the Sun to stand still,
     (from the command of God given through the Prophet Joshua), as written

     the appearance of the shadow on the sun dial of Ahaz returning ten degrees
     backward, (by the command of God through the Prophet Isaiah), in behalf of
     Hezekiah, the King of Judah. 
Helaman 12: 15
  And thus, according to his word
     the earth goeth back, and it appeareth unto man that the sun standeth still; yea,
     and behold, this is so; for surely it is the earth that moveth and not the sun.

     "When Joseph died at the age of 110 years, he had lived to see Ephraim's
     children of the third generation.  The eldest son of Ephraim was Shuthelah,
     and other sons were Bered and Tahan.  Some of Ephraim's family were slain
     by the men of Gath in Egypt who came to steal their cattle out of the land of
     Goshen."

     "At the first enumeration taken of the Israaelites by tribes, in the wilderness

     contained
Numbers 1: 32-33  40,500 males over twenty years of age able to bear arms."

     of the land assigned to Ephraim are given in Josh. 16:1-10.  It included most
     of what was afterwards called Samaria as distinguished from Judea and Galilee.
     It thus lay in the center of all traffic, from north to south, and from Jordan to
     the sea, and was about 55 miles long and 30 broad.  The Tabernacle and
     the Ark were deposited within its limits at Shiloh, where it remained for four
     hundred years.  During the time of the Judges and the first stage of the monarchy
     this tribe manifested a domineering and haughty and discontented spirit.  For more
     than five hundred years, . . . , Ephraim, with its two dependent tribes of
Manasseh
     and Benjamin, exercised undisputed pre-eminence."

     (Ragozin:
The Story of Assyria, p 232.)  "Assyrian inscriptions record, in the fifth
     year of his reign (
739 BC), a victory over Azariah (Uzziah), king of Judah, whose
     achievements are described in 2 Chronicles 26:6-15.  In
733 BC his armies
     conquered
Philistia on the Mediterranean sea coast, destroyed Damascus and
     occupied most of Israel, with its northern regions becoming Assyrian provinces."
     "These events were recorded in the Bible, which describes how Tiglath-Pileser III
     defeated Pekah, king of
Israel, and Rezin, king of the Aramaeans, who had allied
     against him.  He executed Rezin, and Pekah was murdered by Hoshea, who took
     control of the rump Israelite kingdom as a vassal paying tribute to the Assyrians.
     (2 Kings 15:29; 16:5-9; 1 Chronicles 5:6, 26)  Ahaz (known to the Assyrians as
     Yahu-khazi), the king of Judah, was also forced to pay tribute to the Assyrian
     conqueror (2 Kings 16:10-16)."
     . . .
     "The plan will be to trace the story of the children of Ephraim down through
     the captivity to the point where their history merges with that of the tribes
     which settled northern Europe and became the progenitors of the people of
     Scandinavia, Great Britain, Germany, France, etc."

     . . .
     "In the ninth year of Hoshea the king of Assuria took Samaria and carried
     Israel away into Assyria, and placed them in Halah, and in Habor by the river
     of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes." (11 Kings 17:6.)  Sargon II
     ". . .  A rising in Ashdod, supported by Judah, Moab, Edom and Egypt was
     suppressed, and Ashdod became an Assyrian province. . . . Under his rule
     the Assyrians completed the defeat of the
Kingdom of Israel, capturing
     Samaria after a siege of three years and dispersing the inhabitants." . . .
     "During the reign of the last king of the northern kingdom, Hosea
2 Kings 10
     the
Assyrians invaded in 722/721 B.C.E. (initially under Shalmaneser V and
     finally under Sargon II) when they established complete control over the capital
     city and the remainder of the northern kingdom.  The fragment of a stela with
     an Assyrian inscription attributed to Sargon II was found on the eastern slope
     of the acropolis testifying to their presence.  In addition, according to inscriptions
     from Sargon’s palace at Khorsabad (
Dur-Sharrukin), the inhabitants of Samaria
     were deported to Assyria.  The remains of a wall relief in Room 5 of Sargon’s
     palace is thought to depict Samaria and its defeated defenders."
     . . .
     "In the beginning of my reign I besieged, I took by the help of the god Shamash,
     who gives me victory over my enemies, the city of Samaria (ir-Samirina). 27,280
     of its inhabitants I carried away . . . I took them to Assyria and put into their
     places people whom my hand had conquered." (Ragozin, p 247; Sayce: 'Ancient
     Civilizations and Their Vanished Glories.' in Book of History, p 1575, Carpenter,
     p 30.)"
     . . .
     "On the Nineveh marbles the story can be read that a people called Esak-ska
     (cf. Sakai, Saki-suna, Saxons) rebelled against the Assyrians about 670 B.C.
     or nearly fifty years after the captivity."
     . . .
     "They took this counsel among themselves, that they would leave the multitude
     of the heathen, and go forth into a further country, where never mankind dwelt,
     that there they might keep their statutes, which they never kept in their own land.
     And they entered in at the narrow passages of the Euphrates.  For the Most High
     then showed signs for them, and held still the flood till they were passed over.
     For through that country there was a great way to go, even of a year and a half.
     And the same region is called Arsareth. (11 Esdras  13:40-46.)"
     . . .
     "From this area north of the Black Sea two great general waves of migration spread
     over northern Europe.  The first was that of the Cimmerians or Kelts; the second that
     of the Scythians.  From the first group have arisen the Cimbri who attacked Rome, the
     Cymry or Welsh descended from the ancient Britons, the Bretons of Brittany in France,
     the Gaelic Scots and the Irish.  Some branches of this race settled early in Scandinavia.
     From the Scythian stock have sprung the Franks, the Gothic tribes which overthrew
     the Roman Empire and settled in Italy, Spain, and northern Africa, the Anglo-Saxons,
     the Lowland Scotch, the Swedes, Danes, Norwegians and Icelanders, the Germans,
     Flemish, Swiss and Dutch."

1 Nephi 22: 3-4  And behold, there are many who are already lost from the knowledge

     "The eminent Jewish commentator and historian, Moses Maimonides --who lived
     in the 13th century--in a manuscript commentary on the Old Testament, reviews
     the blessings which Jacob pronounced upon his sons.  He speaks of a certain
     Antenor, King of the Cimmerians, who lived 443 B.C.  This Antenor he termed
     'the chief Prince of Ephraim.'  In Hebrew genealogy this would mean he was
     probably oldest son of the oldest son down from Ephraim through Elishama
     and Joshua in patriarchal order of descent."   . . .  The Children of Ephraim and
     Early Franks "It is now impossible, without more knowledge of those early days,
     to either prove or disprove the links of this ancient record.  It stands, like some
     tall pillar amid the ruins of a once glorious temple, the sole remaining evidence
     of former granduer. . . ."

     "From Scandinavia to the Baltic and thence southward, along the valley of the
     river Dnieper in Russia down to its mouth in the Black Sea, these mounds may
     be followed, marking the path of migration of some powerful people." . . .
     "According to Du Chaillu, the ornaments and relics found in these mounds near
     the Black Sea are 'remarkably alike' and 'exactly similar' to those found in the
     mounds of Scandinavia and the Baltic. (The Viking Age, Vol 1. pp 216, 299.)"
     . . . "The Russian Archaeological Society has made extensive excavations into
     these mounds and has unearthed hundreds of epitaphs of tombs, some of them
     of great antiquity, going back to pre-Christian times.  The inscriptions are in
     the Hebrew language, and give indisputable proof of the identity of the people
     who made them." . . . "The mounds of the Black Sea region, of Scandinavia,
     and of elsewhere in Europe are the way marks and high heaps of Ephraim."
     . . .
     President Brigham Young, spoke in the Bowery, Great Salt Lake City,
     on May 31, 1863.  . . . "The sons of Ephraim are wild and uncultivated,
     unruly, ungovernable.  The spirit in them is turbulent and resolute; they
     are the Anglo-Saxon race, and they are upon the face of the whole earth,
     bearing the spirit of rule and dictation, to go forth from conquering to conquer.
     They search wide creation and scan every nook and corner of this earth to
     find out what is upon and within it.  I see a congregation of them before me
     to-day.  No hardship will discourage these men; they will penetrate the
     deepest wilds and overcome almost insurmountable difficulties to develop
     the treasures of the earth, to further their indomitable spirit for adventure."
     . . .
     Chronicles of the
Saxons, show that when they invaded England in A.D. 400,
     an appeal was "sent back to Scythia for reinforcements", to an area south-
     east of the Black Sea; an area from which Germans and Celts had migrated
     westward, to the coast of Europe.  "Archaeologists discovered in [A.D.] 2000
     that Scythians landed several miles outside St Austell in Cornwall and their
     presence had an influence on the Cornish language." . . . "from descendants
     of these tribes down to individuals living in typical nations of Europe; from
     these persons the various lines will be traced till they unite in a Puritan emigrant
     who sailed for New England, there to become a progenitor of numerous families
     among us."
