Another Question About Adam...

How old was he when he was created? I understand that he wasn't a child or baby when God created him... But since he wasn't created prior to adult hood was he created as a 30 year old? Or would he have still only been 1? I think this matters because the bible says he lived to be like 930+ years and then says that no man can live to be 1000... So does that mean that he was in reality 960? More or less???

  • I've always wondered the same thing! I have assumed the 930 is actually referring to years that he lived on earth - not necessarily is apparent age at creation.

  • To my understanding, according to the book of Genesis, Adam was fully matured when god created him.

  • ^^lol..unfortunately, they only mature physically, not mentally. that's why he was still blaming his mistake on a woman. :)

  • In their sinless state age did not matter. It wasn't like humans now, we age and things change and begin to decay. So age really would not have mattered.
