Genesis 11:12

This website has been moved to: https://debatemap.live

Genesis 11:12: Arphaxad lived thirty-five years, and begot Salah.

Luke 3:35-36: the son of Serug, the son of Reu, the son of Peleg, the son of Eber, the son of Shelah, the son of Cainan, the son of Arphaxad, the son of Shem, the son of Noah, the son of Lamech,

Genesis says that Salah's father was Arphaxad, but Luke says that Salah's father was Cainan.

The Hebrew genealogies are sometimes telescoped, where ancestors are listed as fathers, and descendents are listed as children. (the Hebrew word has multiple meanings)
