Genesis Chapter 5
As I was reading through this chapter, I had tons of questions soaring through my mind. How in the world can this chapter be explained? The life spans that are mentioned here are just too much for my mind to grasp. In the ancient times wasn't the lifespan much shorter than it is today?
Then I thought, maybe the 1st age mentioned was their actual age and the later age mentioned when they died was the life span of their particular clan. But I mean that was just a thought. I am not trying to change Scripture at all - it is just that my mind is incapable of understanding this particular passage. But that is totally ok because I will never fully understand the whole of Scripture because God hasn't yet revealed all things to me.
So, therefore, by faith - I take it as it is. And if you think about it, Adam and Eve were created in the image and likeness of God. They were maybe even more genetically stronger than we are today - who knows.
What are your thoughts on this? I would love to hear them ...
