Adam & Eve

Question: How many people did God create? Genesis 1:27says : " So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created. V. 28 God blessed them and said to them..." The man should refer to Adam. But who were the male and female and where did they go after God created them?

Answer: God created Adam and Eve as the male and female. He didn't create anyone else just them. It can be a little confusing because Genesis 1:1-2:3 are an account of what happened on the 6 days of the creation week. On day six he created man (mankind) as male and female. Genesis 2:4-25 is a more detailed account of what happened on the sixth day of creation when God created the male, Adam, and the female, Eve.

Genesis 5 - Noah's Age

Question: If Noah was 500 when he was told to build the ark and 600 when he & 3 sons and all the wives got on board with the animals, how many other children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren did he leave behind? I would imagine that he had many more than just 3 sons in 500 years, yes??

Answer: It is possible Noah had children prior to Shem, Ham and Japheth. If he did, those children must not have been walking with God. Genesis 5:32 seems to indicate that he had Shem, Ham and Japheth either as triplets when he was 500 or individually around Noah's 500th year. The flood occurred in Noah's 600th year (Gen. 7:6). Based on Genesis 11:10, Shem was 98 years old at the time of the flood. We only know what these verses tell us however.
