This is the written account of Adams line. When God created man, he made him in the likeness of God. 2 He created them male and female and blessed them. And when they were created, he called them "man."
OT:120 adam (aw-dawm); from OT:119; ruddy i.e. a human being (an individual or the species, mankind, etc.): KJV - another, hypocrite, common sort, low, man (mean, of low degree), person. OT:121 Adam (aw-dawm); the same as OT:120; Adam the name of the first man, also of a place in Palestine:

Gen 5:3 And Adam lived one hundred and thirty years, and begot a son in his own likeness, after his image, and named him Seth. NKJV Created in the image of God, but fallen into total depravity. St. Paul says; Rom 7:21-25 So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22 For in my inner being I delight in Gods law; 23 but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? 25 Thanks be to God — through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to Gods law, but in the sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.
Gen 5:3 And Adam lived one hundred and thirty years…NKJV How old was Adam when he was created?
Gen 1:27-31 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. 28 God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the.…the sixth day. Old enough to marry and reproduce. 16?, 18?, 25?, 35?, 61?
This is pre-fall. Outside the boundaries of a cursed state. Is it possible that the first Adam, before the curse might have resembled the Last Adam after He conquered death? I think so.
Mark 9:2-4 After six days Jesus took Peter, James and John with him and led them up a high mountain, where they were all alone. There he was transfigured before them. 3 His clothes became dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world could bleach them. 4 And there appeared before them Elijah and Moses, who were talking with Jesus.
Jesus wasn’t recognized; Luke 24:40-41….he showed them his hands and feet. 41 And while they still did not believe it…. John 20:15-16…Thinking he was the gardener, she said, "Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him." 16 Jesus said to her, "Mary.“…
How old was the Last Adam 40 days after He resurrected and conquered death? How old is the Last Adam now?
1 Cor 15:44-49…If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. 45 So it is written: "The first man Adam became a living being"; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit. 46 The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. 47 The first man was of the dust of the earth, the second man from heaven. 48 As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the man from heaven, so also are those who are of heaven. 49 And just as we have borne the likeness of the earthly man, so shall we bear the likeness of the man from heaven.
Gen 2:17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die.“ Could it be that Adam’s 130 years started at the fall?
Eph 2:1-3 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient.
Gen 5:3-5 When Adam had lived 130 years, he had a son in his own likeness, in his own image; and he named him Seth. 4 After Seth was born, Adam lived 800 years and had other sons and daughters. 5 Altogether, Adam lived 930 years, and then he died. Some teach that there are “gaps” in the genealogy here, yet hold to inerrancy. How? Where?
Adam had lived 130 years, … Seth. Seth had lived 105 years….Enosh. Enosh had lived 90 years….Kenan. Kenan had lived 70 years…Mahalalel. Mahalalel had lived 65 years….Jared. Jared had lived 162 years…Enoch. Enoch had lived 65 years…Methuselah. Methuselah had lived 187 years…Lamech Lamech had lived 182 years…Noah Noah was 500 years old…Shem, Ham and Japheth. [Total = 1556 years]
Gen 5:3-32, 1556 Years Adam to Shem Gen 7:11-12 In the six hundredth year of Noahs life, on the seventeenth day of the second month — on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened. 1556 Years, plus 100 years= 1656 Years Adam to Flood
Gen 5:24 Enoch walked with God; then he was no more, because God took him away. Enoch walked with God for 300 years.
J. Vernon says that when the little girl learned that Enoch walked with God, and God took him to heaven, she explained to her mom that they walked so far from Enoch’s home that God said; “It’s so far back to your house why don’t you just come home with me” and he did.
Some of the commentators are not sure where God took him. I think the little girl knows more than them, based on Heb 11:5-6;
Heb 11:5-6 By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death; he could not be found, because God had taken him away. For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God. 6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
mete,qhken verb indicative aorist active 3rd person singular [UBS] metati,qhmi (aor. mete,qhka ; aor. pass. metete,qhn) remove, take back; take up (of Enoch); change (of priesthood) ; distort (Jd 4); midd. desert, turn away (Ga 1.6)
Keil and Delitzsch Commentary says; “In Enoch, the seventh from Adam through Seth, godliness attained its highest point; whilst ungodliness culminated in Lamech, the seventh from Adam through Cain, who made his sword his god. Enoch, therefore, like Elijah, was taken away by God, and carried into the heavenly paradise, so that he did not see (experience) death (Heb 11:5); i.e., he was taken up from this temporal life and transfigured into life eternal,
being exempted by God from the law of death and of return to the dust, as those of the faithful will be, who shall be alive at the coming of Christ to judgment, and who in like manner shall not taste of death and corruption, but be changed in a moment. There is no foundation for the opinion, that Enoch did not participate at his translation in the glorification which awaits the righteous at the resurrection. For, according to 1 Cor 15:20,23, it is not in glorification, but in the resurrection, that Christ is the first-fruits.”
Removed before the flood. Protected through the flood. Destroyed by the flood. For the faithful church (Philadelphia) Jesus promised ek. Rev 3:10 Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from [ek] the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth.
Yet he died before his father. How can that be? Genesis 5:24 Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.
When Methuselah had lived 187 years, he became the father of Lamech. 26 And after he became the father of Lamech, Methuselah lived 782 years and had other sons and daughters. 27 Altogether, Methuselah lived 969 years, and then he died. 28 When Lamech had lived 182 years, he had a son. 29 He named him Noah…. [Methuselah lived 782 years after the birth of Lamech and Lamech lived 182 years to Noah, + Noah’s 600 years to the flood. Means Methuselah died the year of the flood.]
Jewish tradition says the flood came within 7 days of his death.
2 Peter 3:3-7 First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. 4 They will say, "Where is this coming he promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation." 5 But they deliberately forget that long ago by Gods word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water. 6 By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. 7 By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.
All the descendants in the “Godly Line” drowned except Noah and his family.

Who did Cain and Abel marry? Adam and Eve were created perfect and their off-spring would have had few, if any, genetic abnormalities. Problems with mutations in DNA or diseases would have been virtually non-existant. We also know that people were multiplying like rabbits on the earth in the first generations: "So the LORD said to him, "Therefore whoever kills Cain, vengeance will be taken on him sevenfold." And the LORD appointed a sign for Cain, lest anyone finding him should slay him." Gen 4:15 "And Cain had relations with his wife and she conceived, and gave birth to Enoch; and he built a city and called the name of the city Enoch" Gen 4:17 Therefore marriage between the children of Adam and Eve, Cain and Ables brothers and sisters, would be normal, common and without genetic defects. Then the days of Adam after he became the father of Seth were eight hundred years, and he had other sons and daughters. Gen 5:4 Marriage to a sister or brother in the first generations of the human race was not considered sinful. Gods later instructions to Moses forbid marriage to close relatives as time and sin marched onward. "The nakedness of your sister, either your fathers daughter or your mothers daughter, whether born at home or born outside, their nakedness you shall not uncover." Lev 18:9 "Cursed is he who lies with his sister, the daughter of his father or of his mother." Deut. 27:2 Got a question? Reply to this email! We might use it!
