The Hidden Jesus in Genesis! Jesus Revealed in the Hidden Patterns of Genesis!

(Ver 1.5)  Jesus makes a very profound and awesome statement in the Gospels while He was speaking to the people of the natural nation of Israel.  These are such tremendously important words that we (Christians) need to grasp and fully understand what they say and what they mean.  Please read with me this statement spoken by the Almighty God personally to humans:

Joh 5:39  Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

A witness is someone who testifies in court of law.  A witness in a court of law is someone who comes in and testifies about what they know, what they have seen or for something as an expert that is relevant and pertains to the case in question.   An expert witness in a court case is someone who can speak with a certain level of authority on the specific related subject about the case.   So God’s claim in this verse appears to indicate that the Bible is an expert witness for God’s case that He is presenting to us about the existence of Jesus Christ and His true identity.   We should be able to clearly see what God is saying about the purpose of the Bible.  God claims that the Old Testament contained hidden information about who Jesus was and what He is going to accomplish before He was done.  Jesus also clearly informed us that we needed to search the scriptures to find this information.  If we are required to become a “Sherlock Holmes” type of Christian doing a search of the written word in order to find these facts, that would mean that this information is not always clearly presented on the initial surface reading.   This would also indicate that the information about Jesus was purposely hidden either from someone or for someone like us to find.  For example, why do parents hide Easter eggs for their young children?  Is it to protect the candy from being discovered?   No actually it is more for the fun of seeing their children search for them with eager expectations of finding them.    The purpose of hiding eggs is not to keep the children from ever finding the candy but it does simply create a challenge for them that provides the parents the pleasure of seeing the excitement derived from their discovery.  This is a key concept that is needed to fully grasp about the words found in the Old Testament.  The Bible contains literally many hidden secrets about Jesus and these concealed clues were placed there by our Heavenly Father for us (His children) to search and discover.

The Law of Moses was given to Israel on Mt Sinai and they carried these words for many hundreds of years.  The Jewish people preserved them and cared for them and then when the author of the book appeared before them in the flesh they killed him.  Why is this, I asked myself?  I can see Jesus in the Old Testament, why couldn’t they see Jesus in the same way?  That of course is a really good question to consider.  I would guess that it is extremely more difficult to see what you do not know personally exists.  For Christians who know Jesus personally, they have a much greater advantage over the people in Jesus’ days on the earth.  They did not know Him like we can know Him so it is much easier for us to discover Jesus in the hidden verses in O.T. books like Genesis.  The rest of this lesson will be about something that I have blogged on before, but maybe not in this direct context and under this specific title.   This lesson will focus on the hidden Jesus in Genesis and I will give you at least three really good examples of Him that maybe you have not seen before.   I will focus only on the first two chapters of Genesis and you will certainly be amazed if you can see it.  Before, we start, I pray that the eyes of your understanding be opened and enlightened to see God’s truth.

Genesis 1:1

alpha_omega3_6Let’s start with Genesis 1:1, where it says “In the beginning God created, the heaven and the earth”.  Did you know Jesus was Hidden in this verse in Genesis by the Author?  However, unless you read and study it in the original Hebrew language you probably did not specifically know this.  The 4th word of the original Hebrew text is a word that has been completely omitted from the English translation and this one word reveals Jesus in this verse in a very profound way.  The Hebrew word omitted in this verse is actually not a real word at all and thus the reason for the omission of a translation to the English language.  The translators simply did not understand what to do with it, so they omitted it.    This omitted word consists of only two Hebrew letters.  These two letters are the “alef” and the “tav”.   These two Hebrew letters just so happen to be the very first and very last letters of the Hebrew alphabet.  Does that help you to see Jesus better now?   What I am saying is that Genesis 1:1 should have read “In the beginning the A-Z God created the heavens and the earth”.  The translators did not understand the significance and they ignored the word being connected to the name of God.

Rev 1:8  I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

This new information should start to illuminate many spiritual light bulbs inside your heart and mind.   You see , here in the book of Revelation chapter 1 and verse 8 Jesus calls Himself the “Alpha and the Omega”.  It just so happens that these are also the very first and very last letters of an alphabet, but here it is of the Greek Alphabet.   If the translators would have converted these two Greek letters to English properly Jesus would have said “I am the A and the Z”.  Now do you see the connection more clearly? Also consider the fact that Jesus was a Hebrew.  He spoke predominately Hebrew to the Jewish people.  Therefore, when spoken this verse in Revelation could have been written in Hebrew and said “I am the Alef and the Tav”.  Since it was written in Greek the Apostle John did the inspired thing to convert into Greek letters from the original spoken Hebrew.  The English translators could have followed His example and legally translated it as the A and the Z.

What God is doing is revealing who created the world that we live in.  Jesus Christ was the Word of God and He created ALL things that we can see and observe.  Without Him was nothing that was made, made (John 1:1-3).  So Jesus is clearly identified as the creator God, the “A-Z God” who created everything that was created.  This is a very profound and priceless conformation of the identity of the Messiah to be the man Jesus Christ.  In the Beginning the A-Z God created the heavens and the earth.  That is how this verse should have read, now let’s go find Jesus in some other verses in Genesis.


Genesis 1:15-19  Day 4 of Creation

Gen 1:14  And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
Gen 1:15  And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 
Gen 1:16  And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. 
Gen 1:17  And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 
Gen 1:18  And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. 
Gen 1:19  And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. 

I want to skip down in chapter 1 of Genesis to the described Day 4 of creation.  This day is one of the most important hidden references to Jesus in all of Genesis.  I do not profess to know every hidden reference to Jesus in Genesis, but I feel this one is one of the most important to see based upon my current understanding of the Bible.   You see on Day 4 of the creation account, God tells us of two opposing lights.  What God is doing is speaking symbolically and prophetically in these verses about Jesus Christ and what will be accomplished by His appearance on the earth.

In studying the days of creation I learned that every day of creation represented a prophetic day of man’s future on the earth.  Since the beginning of Adam’s creation it has been approximately 6000 years.   6000 years can be divided evenly by 1000 giving us an answer of 6.   These 6 equal periods of 1000 years represent a prophetic day in the definition of God’s timetable for man.  We learn in 2 Peter 3:8 where God gives us a definition of a prophetic day that is a direct quote of a verse found in Psalm 90:4.  God defines that a day to Him is exactly like 1000 years to humans.  So the 6 days of creation plus the 7th day of God’s rest turn out to be prophetic days of all of man’s history on the earth.   So what happens on the 4th day of creation?   God assigns a greater light to rule the day and a lesser light to rule the night.  The greater light is of course a synonymous title for the Sun and the lesser light is certainly the moon.  But, God is not talking about only natural things, God is prophesying about two spiritual kingdoms to come.   Jesus was born on the earth some 4000 years after Adam and this can be easily translated as during the time of the 4th day of creation.   God is prophesying that Jesus will rule the kingdom of day and be the Sun light of our world.  God is further stating that Satan (the symbolic moon) will rule the kingdom of the night and all those people that live in this darkness.  There are so many scriptures that can be found in the Bible that speak of this profound revelation.  I will not attempt to give you them all, but I will go through a few to get you started.  You can read other blogs that I have written to find more information on this subject.  Or just search your Bible on your phone or computer and look for words like night, day, darkness and light.

Mal 4:2  But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

In Malachi 4:2 Jesus Christ is prophesied as coming again in a very similar way that was being described in Genesis 1.  Here Jesus is called the “Sun of Righteousness” that will “arise”.    In this verse He is not spoken of as the “Son of God”, but here He is in direct connection to being the “Sun of God”.  You can understand that God is speaking symbolically again about far greater spiritual truths.   These are clues to knowing the truth but we are required to search and put them together correctly with the Lord’s help of course.

Joh 1:7  The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 
Joh 1:8  He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light
Joh 1:9  That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

In John 1:7-9, the Bible talks about John the Baptist and Jesus and calls Jesus the “True Light” in verse 9.   You see if you think about this logically you can see that our sun in the sky is our physical natural true light that rules over the day and the moon represents the opposite realm that rules over the night.  This is a direct comparison of the two great lights in the sky mentioned in Genesis 1.   In John 8:12 Jesus is speaking and He calls himself the “Light of the World”.  He then says that those who follow Him will not walk in darkness (night) where the unstated moon (Satan) rules.   You can again see a spiritual reference to a truth that is revealed in Genesis on the 4th day of creation.  These opposing truths are called Day vs. night, the Sun vs. the moon, and the Light vs. the darkness.   These are all symbolic representations of the hearts and spirits of men and women in the world today.  Two spiritual dimensions and conditions that are directly opposed to each other and ruled by opposite spirits.   Again in John 12:46 Jesus says, “I am come as a light to the world, that those who believe in me should not abide in darkness”.  Jesus says those who do not follow Christ and His ways are those that are walking and living in the darkness and who are ruled by the night and Satan.  This CANNOT be speaking of Christians.  There is absolutely no logical way this can come close to the truth for those that believe the moon represents Christians.  I have heard this belief from several people before, but it just does not balance with scriptures.  A Christian is either ruled by Jesus in the Day or governed and ruled by Satan in the darkness..

2Pe 1:19  We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:

Here we have another great verse that declares Jesus to be the Sun that arises and shines in human hearts to light our spirits so that we can see and understand His truth.  Notice the keyword connection “arise” given here that matches what Malachi prophesied about the “Sun of Righteousness”.  That is NOT a coincidence.  These are all profound confirmations to the 4th day of creation.  Notice that this verse in 2 Peter is speaking about previously written prophetic words concerning a light arising in a previously named dark place.  We have to search and look for these words and find them, could this be those that we found mentioned in  Genesis and Malachi?  All you have to do is read it and see what it says about these two lights to see how much is related to what we have observed.

That is part of the difficulty in correct Bible interpretation.  The Sun is called by many different names, titles and descriptions in the Bible so we have to be wise enough to see the connections and find them all using God’s help.   In Genesis the Sun is called the “Greater Light”.   In John the Spiritual Sun was called the “True Light”.  Here in 2 Peter the Sun is called the “Day Star”.   You do understand that our sun is our closest star to our planet and normally this start is the only one we can see during daylight hours?  These are just some of the ways that God uses to hide information in the Bible for us to find.   In Revelation 22:16 you can see Jesus being called the “Bright and Morning Star”.  This again is a new symbolic reference to the Sun in Genesis 1 and Malachi 4 that arises in the hearts of men.  These are all extremely important things to learn and to understand.  I hope and pray that was sufficient to at least motivate you to go learn more.


Genesis 2  Adam and Eve

Another way God uses stories in the Old Testament to hide spiritual information concerning Jesus is through the use of typology.    These are true natural stories of real natural people, places and things that have greater spiritual meanings attached to them to reveal to us hidden things that we cannot see.  Sometimes types and shadows can be hard to recognize and difficult to discover  or understand.  However, God has given to us some clues in the Bible to help us and to point us to what to look for.  Always trust the Holy Spirit to help you in your Bible study.  He is the only one that truly knows what it means.   In the 2nd chapter of Genesis God gives us the detailed account of the creation of man and of the woman, the law of marriage and the story of the beginning of the first human family on the planet.  This entire chapter is a more detailed view of Day 6 of creation described in Genesis 1. Why is this detail information important and how does this relate to the claim of Jesus to be hidden in Genesis?  That is a really good question.  So here is the beginning of the primary reason why this is so important to know:

1Co 15:45  And so it is written, The first man Adam  was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

Here is a direct clue from God showing us a direct connection between two different men both called Adam.   This verse compares the first created man Adam to the man Jesus Christ.  Jesus Christ here is being called the “Last Adam”.   Why is that?   What you discover when you study Genesis 2,  is that the first natural man Adam was a natural pattern for the last spiritual man Adam that was to come.  So whatever God did to and for the first man Adam, is what will happen to the Last Man Adam in the spiritual realm.  That of course is some totally new information to many Christians and it may be hard to accept at first, but just keep studying and you will see that it is true.

God created Adam’s wife and took her body from his body.  You will recall God put Adam asleep and took from his side the bone to create a woman.  As a result of what God did, Adam says “She is now bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh”.  In other words, Eve was called the “body of Adam”.   According to the law of marriage given to us in Genesis 2, it says “The man shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife and the two shall become one flesh”.   One flesh is just another way of saying “One Body”.   Many people know that the Church is called the Body of Christ in the N.T. and yet they do not know how we became the Body of Christ.   We can answer this mystery very easily if we see that by the law of marriage and the pattern of the first man Adam Genesis 2, the church has now become the Body of Jesus by a new covenant of marriage.  You can see this very clearly by reading verses in Ephesians 5 about husbands and wives and then God reveals that this is a mystery that concerns Christ and the church.

Remember when Jesus was hanging on the cross?  He died on that cross and in the N.T. this is often referred to as being asleep (1 Cor 11:30, 1 Cor 15:51).  Jesus Christ being dead (asleep) on the cross was pierced in His side by a Roman soldier’s spear.   Does this sound familiar to what we read in Genesis 2?  Out of His side flowed Blood and Water.  These are two powerful elements of our salvation to become His bride.  Jesus Christ is the spiritual Last Adam who marries a wife who becomes His Body born out of His side.  Because Eve is a woman that births every natural and physical being on this planet she represents a natural type of another spiritual woman who will birth spiritual realities in God’s new covenant family.   I have many other blogs that talk about this in much more depth if you are interested.

Gal 4:19  My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you,



These were just 3 of the examples of the hidden Jesus in Genesis chapters 1 and 2.  I hope that you learned something and can now begin to see how to learn to search out other hidden references to Jesus in Genesis trusting in God’s guidance.  Many times these hidden references are not obvious at all, so we have to search for scriptures and find references, definitions, types and patterns revealed in other parts of the Bible.  Jesus told us to search the scriptures, for these are they that testify of Him!   The evidence for God can be found in His Word.  God Bless!

    Hi (back again)..I’m still on the same train of thought as before when I first shared, only more fully convinced it is in Genesis 1 Paul writes of the Fruits of the Spirit…from Genesis 1. It’s all (to me) a humongous metaphor analogy of the Spiritual Reality …You had written, now here is ‘Mystery”…“In the beginning the A-Z God created the heavens and the earth”. What is that?

    The LORD God…in The beginning the LORD God created…if we go to Genesis 1:27 and read carefully there is a lot of switching around of the words He and Him and them, which He refers to whom (and him) as noted in Colossians?

    But wait, the LORD is not mentioned in Genesis 1, but suddenly is in Genesis 2? Where is He in Genesis 1? He is not mentioned bedcause he IS Genesis1, “I Am The Beginning..and The End”.. ‘IN The Beginning….” All things were made by Him and Through Him…” Genesis 1 is not the earth..and why does it latter read he says to them, ‘replenish the earth’..but wait, how can it be ‘replenished if they are just coming into existence and replenished from what?”’s the Gospel. Also noting Genesis 2:1-4 how it parallels parts of the High Priestly Prayer of John 17, Sanctify them with your Truth, your word is Truth. He sanctified the Seven Day..and also noting it reads in THE DAY He created the heavens and the earth, (not ‘days’) ..

    Jesus said, “My Father worketh until Today, and I work”

    But then why is it that: “And on the seventh day **God** ended **His work** which **He** had made; and **He Rested on The Seventh Day** from All **His** work which **He** had made.

    3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it:
    because that ***in it*** He had rested from all His work ***which God*** created and made.

    4 These are the ***generations*** of the heavens and of the earth
    when they were created,
    in the day that*** the LORD God*** made the earth and the heavens

    There it is, first use of The LORD…but wait, ‘Adam and eve’ don’t exist yet.


  2. Stephen Sponsler

    I’ve come to the Conclusion that all of Genesis 1 is Christ. It is where Paul got his revelation of Romans 8:24-30. those in !:27 are they whom He foreknew from before the foundation of the earth and are in Christ..that are ‘IN The Image of God’ who is Christ…it reads in OUR Image..most think, ‘in his image.. KJV version got all of Genesis 1 -3 right and use them exclusive.y. The different between the !st Adam and Christ is the first one was in DARKNESS (EVE) ..was His own Darkness…and knew nothing, they had no wisdom and did not know God or anything…she wasn’t even there when the LORD spoke to Adam, so there is a double meaning…Christ Jesus is everything the first Adam could have ever been. His origins was in the world, dust..therefore you must be born from ABOVE jsut as He is from above, and not below. There is more to say but will stop for now.

  12. Alexio Chizarura

    Wow wow wow!!an opening listen..Love the revelation


  13. Good thoughts on Adam a type of Christ and Eve a type of Church. i preached recently on the birth of eve from the sleep of Adam, relating to the birth of the church from the death of Christ.
    and indeed the work of God on the rib of Adam in his absence because “only when complete” was Eve presented to Adam. So with the church, it is being formed around “something” that was taken from Christ during His sleep, namely HIS righteousness, and when complete will be presented to Him `without spot or stain`



    • That was some very good additional comments on Eve being taken from Adam. I definitely see it as a viable typology from Genesis. Thanks and God Bless.


      • Thank you very much for these revelations and God bless you. I came across this blog as I am studying Jesus in the books of Moses particularly in Genesis. And I have really learned a lot from this blog. Thanks also to Jeff jones for some very good comment – revelational!


      • Thank you for your kind comment and for being led by the Holy Spirit to find this website. God Bless you.


  14. I ask you to consider your comment…… “You see if you think about this logically you can see that our sun in the sky is the true light and the moon represents a false light”

    Thinking about this logically, the moon is not a false light, it is reflecting the light of the sun, yes the light is of lesser intensity, yes the moon is not generating its own light source, but it is still the same substance of light from the Sun, thus making it a lesser light, but not a false light.

    In your description as Jesus as the Sun, clearly it is told that he is the source of light and radiates that light, the moon there fore would be some one or people or something who although are not the source of the light, never the less reflect this same light, the apostles perhaps ?

    Was this necessary cause when Jesus left, ie the sun is gone, and thus its light is gone, and we would all be left in darkness, but lucky for us, a lesser light reflecting the suns light is available to us, until of course the sun come back and the light given will be from the source its self, and thus of much greater intensity.

    Also consider your statment……… “Jesus says those who do not follow Christ and His ways are those that walk in the darkness and who are ruled by the night and Satan”

    IF it be the case that the moon and thus night is of the same light but of lesser intensity, its untrue to say that those who are ruled by the night are ruled by satan, at least those ruled by the night still get the light of the sun, albit in a reflective form from the moon and in less intensity, may i suggest that satan does not even have this lesser light, but rather all satan has is pure darkness, no sun, no moon, and even if it had a light, it would be of an artifical kind, a tourch pehaps, but certainly not the Sun/Jesus or a reflective less intense form of the suns light ie moon.

    In summary,
    Jesus is Sun

    Moon reflects the Suns light when the Sun goes away, eg night

    The moon does not generate its own light but rather reflects the light of the sun and as a consequence the light from the moon is of a lesser intensity

    Satan has no light and the consequence of darkness that goes with it, and even if it did it would be artifical, and not from the true source of light/Jesus, unlike the moon which at least has the Sun/Jesus as it source of light, that reflects it onto the world.


    • Being a computer programmer for nearly 30 years, I understand the importance of correct logic, at least a little bit. I understand your thought process and your reasoning. I greatly appreciate you taking the time to read my blog and then to be brave enough to make a comment stating your beliefs is very commendable. So I appreciate your time most of all and I also value your thoughtfulness. If you would permit, I will finish my response to your comment by email, since I do not feel I can sufficiently cover the subject in a small comment reply. God Bless!
