10 thoughts on “Jared: biblical figure, first son of Mahalaleel

  1. Hi. This didn’t help at all. Give more details and descriptions like his personality, their message, stories ,what was going on at that time, and other things. I was looking for much more. I hope you take my advice.


    1. There really is no additional material to reference. You may derive, what you will, from what is widely accepted. Jared’s lifespan was the second oldest. His son Enoch, was father to Methuselah, the oldest. Enoch did not die. Enoch walked so closely with God, that he took him. I suggest evaluating the relevancy. Additional note, after the sin of Adam, the following generations became more sinful. Many accept the meaning of the name Jared as “descent”, rather than “descended”. Yet his son of note, Enoch, existed as described above.

    2. There isn’t any such info ever given about Jared. Neither reality, history or biblical texts are like a convenient modern movie or TV show, fyi. They’re also not in any way resembling a bowl of candy or a bag of chips you can simply nosh on as you like. It doesn’t work that way.

      If you could somehow miraculously restore all of the half destroyed text from the qumran Dead Sea scrolls, you might be able to find what you’re looking for lol! And even at that, it’s is not certain that there were any text about Jared in the Dead Sea Scrolls either. Smh

  2. “Easily See 6017 Years of Biblical and World History Together!”

    Sorry to say but you have messed up the timelines there. If we have already crossed 6017 years, then there is no truth left in hoping for “Millennial Reign” to fall on the 7th day [during 6001 to 7000 years].

    1. I would humbly suggest, out evaluation of time is/has/was been misunderstood. Difficult to quantify, due to several variables. How we interpret an experience provided through our creator for a more divine group of beings, biased by immense amounts of compounded sin. Just offering theory.

      1. What like to find out how jard lived his life to live 960 yrs than his great grandfather Adam..

  3. I want to know more about that

  4. Thank you. Your description is on point. I chose the name Jared for my second son and he is 10 years old today – September 2.

    1. I also chose the name for my son spelled Jaryd, his birthday is also on September 2, he is now 29.

  5. My name is Jared and I have also seen the name meaning to be the rose. And I like to note that Enoch his son was the first to go to heaven without dying so Jared must have had some impact on that considering only two people accomplished that the second bie.g Jesus. I would like to note that his life was during the reign of the neplilim or watchers. So that must have been a largely controversial time to be significant enough to not be told stories about him and no records ars around of his life or any other immediate descendants of Adam and eve. And that is for a reason. I would like to also add that they did not have time then nor calendera or anything other than days and nights. No seasons or months had been named. I think Jared was a wise enough man to have his son hushed up to heaven by God himself. Why not have a reason to be significant other than that. But Jared is significant for being old Nd his son.
