Truth from God's word

Adam’s Death


Here is an interesting study regarding how long Adam lived. The Bible says in Genesis 2:17, speaking of eating from the forbidden tree of the knowledge of good and evil, “…in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” But Adam lived to be 930 years old.  Genesis 5:5 says, “And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.”

The Bible is never in error.  Adam did die in the day he ate from the forbidden tree.
2 Peter 3:8 says, “…one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”
Adam lived 930 years, which is less than 1000 years.  930 years equals 22 hours, 19 min and 12 seconds in God’s time.
In God’s time he died at only 22 hours, 19 min and 12 seconds, which is less than a day (24 hours).
