                                  Some Fathers in the Bible
Adam is the first man, and therefore the father of the entire human race. He brought us misery by his fall into sin, thereby giving a sin nature to all his seed. Every human born since Adam is born in sin, and the only hope of salvation is in the last Adam, the Lord Jesus Christ
(1 Corinthians 15:45).

He is called the father of us all (Romans 4:16). This is spiritual truth for all the children of God through the ages, because Abraham believed God and it was counted to him for righteousness.

                                                                    Israel/ Jacob

He was the father of God’s chosen nation in the Old Testament. He had twelve sons, each becoming a tribe. The only tribe we hear much about today is Judah. This is because God separated the tribes because of apostasy. In our day, all the Hebrew people are called Jews.

He is the earthly father of Jesus Christ. His seed did not produce the Christ child. Christ was, and is, the virgin born Son of God. Joseph raised Jesus and taught Him the carpenter’s trade.

                                                                    God the Father

He is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the first Person of the Godhead, and Father to all who have been born again, and placed forever in Christ. This transaction required the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost in time and eternity. We are His children ( John 1:11-13).
(perhaps we can examine all of these in depth at a future time).
