Hebrew - Arpachshad

(ahr pach' sshad) or ARPHAXAD (New Tesstuhment sspelling) Third son of Shem, son of Noah, and ancestor of the Hebrew people (Genesis 10:22). He was born two years after the flood and was the grandfather of Eber. In the New Testament the name Arphaxad appears in Luke's genealogy of Jesus (Luke 3:36). Luke seems to identify Arphaxad as the great-grandfather, rather than the grandfather, of Eber. This suggests the possibility that the genealogy in Genesis 10:1 was not intended to be exhaustively complete.
