(one of the twelve sons of Israel)..
GAD; (Hebrew: גָּד), was born 1564 BC, in Paddan-aram, (Heran); (modern day southeastern Turkey).. The seventh son of Jacob, in the line of 12. He (obviously), was the founder of the Israelite Tribe of Gad.
Gad; was amongst what I call; the silent children of Israel. Thus - the 'ol saying 'well behaved men/women, never make history'... Then becomes true with Mister Gad! There are rumors & innuendos (as with every son of Israel), but I am not interested in rumors/opinions! There is a plethora on google!! I have ALWAYS thought it sad that folks argue over rumors & innuendo! What a waste of time! Especially when it can't be proven either way; and was likely started by someones BIG 'OL IMAGINATION.. Be THAT as it may.. Gad's blessing?? Short and sweet...
T Gad, a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the last. ~Genesis 49:19
