Dear Pastor Andy, what was the mark that God put on Cain in Genesis 4:15? Was it a tattoo?
Sorry, but nobody knows what the mark of Cain was. All I can tell you is that:
- It was noticeable enough for everybody to recognize it (for it was meant to protect Cain from anybody killing him for murdering Abel)
- Everybody back then knew what the mark of Cain meant (that anybody who kills Cain will suffer vengeance 7-times over), and
- That nobody has it today (for if you look at the chart above, you can see that everybody in fellowship with, or even a direct descendant of Cain, died in the flood).
