Were there twins in The Bible?
There are two natural ways, one being when u ovulated u had one fertilized egg that split into two, which also would make them identical twins, and two when you ovulated there… were two eggs that both got fertilized. Hope this helps. I have identical twins.
There are two set's of twins mentioned in the bible and I'm sure this has been answered before. We have Esau and Jacob, and Tamar's twins Zeresh and Pharez. However, there is …sketchy talk of Thomas (a disciple of Jesus) being a twin for the meaning of his name. there is also talk of Joseph's sons being twins but i doubt it for scripture would have said so.
Esau (pronounced Esav in Hebrew) was Jacob's twin brother.. See http://www.answers.com/topic/esau
A: The apostle Thomas, the one called 'Didymus' must have been a twin: Thomas was not a proper name, but meant 'twin' in Aramaic, as does 'Didymus' in Greek. We do not kno…w who his other twin was, but some ancient Gnostic Christians believed that Thomas was the twin of Jesus. Another Answer: Another set of twins is found in both Genesis 38 : 27 - 30, when Tamar gave birth to Perez and then Zerah. The New Testament in Matthew 1: 3 also contains the "parents (Judah and Tamar) and the twins Perez and Zerah. There is no question that Tamar's offspring are very important, their manner of birth suggests that the older serving the younger (as it applied to Esau and Jacob) will apply here as well, i.e. Perez will serve Zerah. It was Zerah that had the 'scarlet thread' tied to his wrist - indicating a kind of blood link with the Lord Jesus Christ. Another View: Note: The above answer about Peretz and Zerach is not true. See below for an accurate answer. Another set of twins is found in Genesis 38 : 27 - 30, when Tamar gave birth to Peretz and then Zerah. Originally, Zerach put his hand out and the nurse put a red string on it to show that he was the first born (and heir). Zerach pulled his hand back in and Peretz was actually born first. Peretz is the ancestor of King David. This has nothing to do with the "older" serving the younger, nor is there any "blood" reference involved in the red string. The other reference to a red string is when the "bikkurim" (first fruits) begin to grow. A red string was tied around the fruit as it began to grow to indicate which would be brought to the temple after harvest. There are commentators that state that Leah and Rachel (the wives of Jacob) were themselves twins. Originally, Leah was supposed to marry Esau and Rachel was supposed to marry Jacob. There are commentators that say that Ephraim and Menashe (the children of Joseph) were also twins. One reason for this is that the word used in referring to their birth is always in the singular. Thus, they were a "single birth" which means twins. Similarly, Joseph did not have more children because he was being careful not to put himself in a position of privilege when the populace was suffering.
The first mention of human twins is here with Esau and Jacob: Genesis 25:24-25New King James Version (NKJV) 24 So when her days were fulfilled for her to give birth, in…deed there were twins in her womb. 25 And the first came out red. He was like a hairy garment all over; so they called his name Esau. Esau and Jacob are the first set of twins mentioned here: Genesis 25:24-25New King James Version (NKJV) 24 So when her days were fulfilled for her to give birth, indeed there were twins in her womb. 25 And the first came out red. He was like a hairy garment all over; so they called his name Esau.
Genesis 4:1 tells of Cain's birth, then 4:2 says that Abel was born. On the KJV translation, it can not be ruled out that the author intended them to be twins, although the… wording is "she again", rather than "she then" - suggesting much later. The NIV translation ("Later she gave birth to his brother Abel") says they were not twins. The Hebrew word used can mean 'increase, or 'add to'. It can also mean 'continued to', so it is not specified in any text what amount of time elapsed between the births so they may or may not have been twins since the text is silent on the issue. Given that the birth was an event worthy of note in other places in the Bible, it may suggest that they were not. All we know is that Cain was the oldest of the two.
In the bible Jacobs twin brother was called Esau.
Jacob and Esau
yes, absolutely! Non-identical twins have a tendancy to be hereditary on your mother's side of the family. So for a female if your mother or mother's mother had non-identical …twins there is a highler likelihood you might. Still, many twins don't have twins, and many people who aren't a twin do have twin. The increase in IVF has increase the number of multiple births in recent decades.
there are two different types of twins iddentical (from a single egg)and un-iddentical(from two eggs). twins are usually close, and share similar likes a…nd dislikes. some people think that twins are telapathic, but they simply share a similar brain makeup, and their thoughts can follow the same path on the same subject.
I know of two pairs of twins in the bible Jacob and Esau, and Thomas and his twin.
Twinning is formation of twin crystals like Siamese twins during crystallization which follow defined twin laws e.g. Spinel and Albite.
