Genesis 4:1 - ...she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I
               have gotten a man from the LORD.
Cain: Seed of the

                     Who begat the first murderer Cain?

Another famous story: Cain kills Abel; his own brother. Now, what would
possess a man to do something so horrible? Cain didn't have a hungry
family. There wasn't a war going on. As we recall from
Untold Garden of
Eden, the serpent and Eve may have gone a little farther than just eating a
piece of fruit. Their offspring, according to many ancient sources, was

The common word for
fathering a child, in the Bible, is begat. Nowhere in
the Bible does it say that Adam
begat Cain! Although Cain was a child of
Eve, he could possibly have had the genes of someone else: an upset and
complaining angelic being, now made human for his punishment. With all
the anger and resentment inside this angelic being, could it be assumed that
the Serpent would pass his negative attributes on to whomever he had
sired? Could this have been a reason why Cain could so easily have
committed murder?

The serpent (Azazel or Nachash), as postulated before, may have used
to seduce Eve. Through their fornication, she became pregnant. As a result,
the two may have produced twins:
both Cain and Abel. Nowhere in the
Bible does it say either Cain nor Abel were Adam's son, nor were they
listed in any genealogies of Adam (Genesis 5:1)! Cain, on the other hand,
was said to be "of the wicked one" (in I John 3:12). The Bible even states
the third son born to Eve,
Seth, was the first child born to her that actually
resembled Adam (Genesis 5:3)! Could the first two offspring of the Bible
possess the blood of someone else? Lets look:

And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain...

Genesis 4:1 (KJV)

To many this is proof positive Adam had sex with his wife, and was the
father of Cain. The word
knew, if we examine the original Hebrew in this
verse, does have the meaning of "sex" (which makes it easy to assume they
copulated). This word, however, could also stand for something totally

The word
knew actually comes from two Hebrew words: yada and eth.
The word
yada not only means to "have carnal sex with," but also "to
recognize," "discern," and "acknowledge."(2) The word
eth is
untranslatable in English, but generally relates to "a sign," "a distinguishing
mark," or "omen."(3) From these other meanings, we could reconstruct the
verse into the following:

And Adam eventually acknowledged the distinguishing sign that had
come upon Eve...

Genesis 4:1 (KJV)

Also, the Hebrew word for
conceived (in the above English translation)
could mean "to already be with child." Put them all together and we gather
another possible meaning to the verse:

And Adam eventually acknowledged the distinguishing sign that had
come upon Eve; that she
was with child, and realized she was about to
give birth to Cain...

Genesis 4:1 (KJV)

The verse takes on a whole new meaning. Could it also mean that it was
time for Cain to be born, and Adam understood it? See how easily verses
could be mistranslated when people assume they should say something
certain way

The next part of this same verse gives even more creditability for our
argument. Apparently, when Eve first saw the baby Cain, she thought she
had gotten him from somewhere beyond her world.(4)

As the rest of the verse states, Eve exclaims: "I have gotten a man from the
LORD" (Genesis 4:1 KJV). According to the New Jerusalem Translation,
the verse translates from the Hebrew a little differently:

I have gotten a man from an angel of the LORD.

"An angel of the LORD" - a fallen angel of the garden, maybe? Eve
apparently thought Cain was of someone very significant. In
Garden of Eden, we already know how the angels of the six-day creation
rebelled, and descend to earth, and took on human form.

After the fall of Adam and Eve, God was forced to deal out punishments to
them all. Curiously enough, most of the punishments to Eve were related to
pregnancy or childbirth. Why? Were they directly related to the
act the
serpent and Eve participated in, just before the fall?

Interestingly enough, there were also curses to the serpent along these same

But He (God) turned to the serpent (in great wrath) and said: 'Since thou
hast done this... There shall not be left thee ear, nor wing, nor
one limb
of all that with which thou did ensnare them in thy malice and causesdst
them to be cast out of paradise...

The Apocalypse of Moses,

Apparently, God dished out punishments as "an eye for an eye" - the
serpent's sexual "limb" was cursed for the way he used it. This answers
how Cain allowed himself to go down the wrong paths in life:

After Adam and his wife sinned, and the serpent had intercourse with
Eve and injected filth into her, Eve bore Cain. He had the shape from
above and from below (the earth)... Therefore, he was the first to bring
death into the world, caused by his side, as he came from the filth of the
serpent. The nature of the serpent is to lurk, so as to kill, and his issue,
learned his ways.(5)

The Zohar,
Pekudei 21                      

Cain apparently carried on the attributes of his father, which could have
easily led him to murder Abel. In another curse to the serpent, God made a
prediction, in probably one of the most important prophecies of the Bible:

And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed
her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Genesis 3:15 (KJV)

The verse is a little complex; divided into two parts. First, it states the seeds
(or descendants) of the serpent will be at enmity with the seeds of Eve. The
serpent's seed would form into one bloodline, Adam's pure, whole seed into

The second part simply was a prediction about Jesus Christ himself, and
how he (a member of Eve's seed) would eventually bruise the serpent's
head, but members of the serpent seed would only be able to bruise the
heel of Jesus. In other words, by crucifying him on the cross, there would
be descendants of the serpent who would only be able to bruise Jesus's
"heel," but Jesus would become victorious in the end. By raising himself
from the dead, Jesus would defeat the serpent's curse of death on the
world, and rectify the curse of death Adam and Eve brought to the world -
he would crush the serpent's power, or

If Jesus was from the true seed of Adam and Eve, which the Bible clearly
stated, then this prophecy would be fulfilled upon his death, burial and
resurrection. The seeds of the serpent, throughout history, would possess
enmity with the blood line that would lead to Jesus and his teachings
from then on. If Cain (and probably others) indeed had the blood (or seed)
of the serpent then his descendants would, naturally, be up in arms against
anything that is truly, purely, of Jesus, and of God.

Those who have blood of the serpent and other fallen angels would go on
to form what was known as "mixed multitudes." The conflict between the
morals, religious beliefs, and ways of life of these mixed groups would
continually oppose those who descended from Adam to this very day, for
the reasons above. This would go on to form one of the most important
conflicts in human history:

... the members of the mixed multitude are the children of the primordial
serpent that seduced Chavah (Eve) by the tree of knowledge, so the mixed
multitude is indeed the impurity that the serpent injected into Chavah.
From this impurity, which is considered the mixed multitude,
(Cain) came forth and slew Hevel (Abel)...

The Zohar,
2 Beresheet a28

There is more about these mixed multitudes, and how their thoughts,
attitudes, and ways of life, relate to Adam, Jesus, and this prophecy of the
Bible. We will discover how Cain and other serpent-seeds began to
influence the world in
Way of Cain. First, to understand more about how
life was lived in the days of the patriarch Cain, see
"Birds" and "Beasts".

There is a lot more ancient evidence to support this claim of Cain's
bloodline, as well as their attributes, in the upcoming book,
