The Hebrew Bible is filled with the detailed lineages of its main and peripheral characters, probably because of the ethnic and cultural diversity of the Levant.
Adam was the first man, and he lived for a very long time. Noah is his 10th direct descendent.
Noah's sons were the direct descendents of many Ancient Near Eastern people, including the first Hebrew, Abraham.
The 12 Hebrew tribes, or clans, are either Jacob's children from his two wives, Leah and Rachel, and their two concubines, Zilpa and Bilha, or Joseph's children from his Egyptian wife.
We take a brief detour to visit the Muhammad family tree, directly descending from Abraham, through the son that was discarded in the Hebrew Bible, Ishmael.
This is how the bible delineates the ancestry of the Hebrew kings of the biblical united kingdoms and the Judean kingdom.
