                            THE GREAT FLOOD

2300            ——————————————————


Note: All the patriarchs but Adam were still alive when Noah was born!  Oral history would assure that all generations knew Adam and Eve’s story and all the following history ‘word perfect’.  You can go back and check the figures from the Biblical records of dates of birth and death.

We are so used to thinking in life spans of 70 or 90 that to see Adam living until he was 930 years old is an adjustment of our thinking.

I trust this time line helps in growing your faith in the perfect plan of our Creator as it has mine,
