TRANSMITTING A LEGACY Of RIGHTEOUSNESS—Genesis 4:25—5:5(32)
In the 1800’s it was discovered that a voice message could be sent over a series of electric wires to a distant location within a matter of minutes. The telephone’ would eventually supersede sending physical ‘letters’ by mail carrier on horseback, rail or boat.
An electrical telegraph device was developed & patented in the United States in 1837 by Samuel Morse.
1838—In Britain, William Cooke & Charles Wheatstone produced the first commercial telegraph in the world.
1876—Scottish emigrant Alexander Graham Bell was the first to be granted a US patent for a device that produced clearly intelligible replication of the human voice—an “apparatus for transmitting vocal or other sounds telegraphically.”
The first commercial US telephone exchange opened in New Haven, Connecticut in January 1878.
1915—With the invention of radio communication, the First U.S. coast-to-coast telephone call, from New York City to San Francisco took place.
1946—Motorola & Bell operated the first commercial VHS radio-based mobile telephone service in the US.
1980s—Due to improvements in radio microwave efficiency, Cellular telephones began as car or location-based system. “Satchel” units were offered that provided a “portable”(but impractical) option.
1973—The first fully mobile cellular phone call took place in NY City.
1983—Thus Motorola introduced the “DynaTAC,” a 2-pound hand-held unit that was about the size of a brick, & could be carried in a briefcase.
These inventors were concerned with transmitting their ‘thoughts’ to others.

4:26—“And as for Seth, to him also a son was born; & he named him Enosh. Then men began to call on the name of the LORD.”
With Enosh’s birth, others now begin to call upon “the name” of YaHWeH. This is no mere occasional mention of YaHWeH’s name as in Cain’s lineage—[Note—1)Mehujael = “smitten by God” & 2)Methusael = “who is of God.”].
