Evidence of Noah’s Descendants Today

Meschera Lowlands

The Bible is a significant key to unlock the history of the earliest kingdoms and peoples of the world.

About a decade ago, I subscribed to the beautiful quarterly magazine, Creation, based in Australia. Recently, I looked up one of my favorite articles of theirs, The sixteen grandsons of Noah. The authors present evidence of these men, listed in Genesis 10, that can be recognized through thousands of years even to today. I decided to make a chart for you (based on the article, plus a little research) to have a quick glance; for the details, though, read the article. I recommend it!

In the chart, I list the grandsons under each of Noah’s sons, Japheth, Ham, and Shem. The names in parentheses are descendants of the grandsons.

This article was not an extensive effort to find all peoples, so I include the second article below for evidence that the ancient Chinese also retained the biblical accounts of Genesis. 

The image is of the Meshchera Lowlands (see chart) and is attributed to Max Presnyakov.
