CAANAN

HUSBAND:
CAANAN. (Cainan-S1-Luke 3:36)(Kainan-S3). [CHART A1].
Son of ARPHAXAD.

He is not included in the book of Genesis in the KJV Bible, and thus is not included in the Royal Ancestor charts of Bennett, Schmuhl,or Campbell, but he is named in Luke 3:36.

Which was the son of Jacob, which was the son of Isaac, which was the son of Abraham, which was the son of Thara, which was the son of Nachor, Which was the son of Saruch, which was the son of Ragau, which was the son of Phalec, which was the son of Heber, which was the son of Sala, Which was the son of Cainan, which was the son of Arphaxad, which was the son of Sem, which was the son of Noe, which was the son of Lamech, S1-Luke 3:34-36

He is also named in the Septuagint bible.

And Arphaxad lived one hundred thirty-five years and became the father of Kainan. ... And Kainan lived one hundred thirty years and became the father of Sala. S3-Genesis 11:12,13

Note that the Septuagint bible in general adds a hundred years to the figures of the King James bible, so I will assume, pending further information, that Arphaxad was thirty five when Caanan was born and Caanan was thirty years old when Sala was born. The question is, why does the King James bible not mention him in Genesis, but does in Luke; and what does this mean for the historical timeline? Again, pending further information, I accept 35 years between Arphaxad and Caanan and 30 years between Caanan and Salah.

Cainan married Melka. (S?).

And Kainan lived after he became the father of Sala three hundred thirty years and had sons and daughters and died. S3-Genesis 11:12,13

WIFE:
Melka. (S?).
