Genealogy & Genesis Quiz

The first recorded genealogy is found within the Book of Genesis in Chapter 5, which also records the age of each character at the birth of their first child and their age at death.  In the beginning, people lived a long, long, long time i.e. Methuselah 969 years.

After Adam and Eve ate fruit from the forbidden tree of “knowledge of good and evil” they were ousted from the garden of Eden “ And the LORD GOD said, behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil; and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever; Therefore the LORD GOD sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.  So he drove out the man; and He placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life. Genesis 3:22-24 (KJV)
