The question of Kainan’s inclusion in Luke 3:36, Genesis 10:24, 11:13–14 and 1 Chronicles 1:18, 24 has been the subject of debate for many centuries. This article will survey “new” evidence for Kainan in manuscripts (MSS) of Luke and the Septuagint (LXX). The evidence itself is actually not “new” at all, but has been ignored in modern discussions about Kainan’s originality, especially by scholars who reject his inclusion in Luke’s Gospel. Moreover, we will present numerous lines of evidence and argumentation for Kainan’s original inclusion in Luke, the Septuagint, and yes, even the original Hebrew text of Genesis.
