1100 Years gap Between Adam and Noah

Genesis 5:1-32. The gap between Adam and Noah is about 1100 years.

    There are 10 generations:

  • Adam – name means: Man (is)
  • Seth – name means: Appointed
  • Enosh – name means: Mortal, frail
  • Kenan – name means: Sorrow
  • Mahalalel – name means: Blessed God, praise God
  • Jared – name means: Shall come down
  • Enoch – name means: Commencement, teaching
  • Methuselah – name means: His death shall bring
  • Lamech – name means: Lament, Lamentation, Despairing
  • Noah – name means: Comfort or Rest

Man (is) appointed mortal sorrow (but) The blessed God shall come down teaching His death shall bring the despairing comfort or Rest – Sums up the Christian Gospel.

Noah was 600 years old when Methuselah died. Which was the same year the Flood started.
