Who Died First? Unraveling the Oldest Biblical Mystery

Who Died First? Unraveling the Oldest Biblical Mystery
If you’ve been diving deep into the biblical narrative, you might have stumbled upon a curious question: Who died first? Adam or Eve? Now, there’s a bit of a mystery because the Bible isn’t exactly clear on this.
Let’s start with what we do know. The Book of Genesis tells us that Adam lived to be 930 years old (Genesis 5:5). That’s a long life, even by biblical standards! But when it comes to Eve, the Bible remains silent. We have no direct mention of Eve’s age at death.
What gives? One possibility is that the Bible simply doesn’t tell us everything. Remember, the Bible is not an exhaustive historical record, but a collection of narratives, laws, poetry, and letters that convey God’s interactions with humanity and the promise of salvation. Maybe Eve’s age wasn’t crucial to that message.
As for theories, some argue that since Adam was created before Eve, he might have died before her. Others say that because Eve was the first to eat the forbidden fruit, she might have faced the consequences of mortality before Adam.
But all of this is speculation. The truth is, we don’t know who died first, Adam or Eve. And maybe that’s okay. The Bible invites us to focus not so much on the specifics of death but on the promise of life—eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ (John 3:16). Now that’s a mystery worth exploring!
