» The highest number of these men to be alive at one time is eight and they are consecutive as follows: Adam, Seth, Enosh, Kenan, Mahalelel, Jared, Enoch, and Methusalah. Methusalah was 120 years old when Seth died at the age of 912 and his son, Lamech, was born a mere 67 years after Seth died.
» When Adam died, all the other men were still alive with the exception of Seth and Noah who was not yet born.
» Methusalah is Noah’s grandfather. He is the longest living man known to history, having a life span of 969 years.
» Enoch never died but has the shortest life span of 365 years. He is remembered as the man who “walked with God” and because of this, God spared him a human death and simply “took him away”. (Gen. 5:24)
» And finally no, Noah’s father did not die in the flood, but his grandfather did! Imagine my surprise as I plotted out these men’s years and the year of the flood, and found that Methusalah’s column ended at the exact same time as the year of the flood! I wonder how much longer Methusalah would have lived if not for the flood.
