Adam to Noah population Diagram

Noah to Abraham population diagram

1946 years + 7 creation days have passed as a TOTAL until the birth of Abram (Abraham).

About 2000 years have passed from Adam to Abraham.

About 2000 years have passed from Abraham to Christ.

About 2000 years have passed from Christ until today.

TOTAL age of the world according to the Bible is about 6000 years.

Psalm 90:4 says that for God a thousand years is like a day; in that case lets assume the 7 creation days were actually 7000 years.

If creation was 7000 years, than the age of the world is about 13,000 years. Please note, that it is only the prerequisites of life, and life itself is this old. Genesis 1:1 only says that God created the earth IN THE BEGINNING. This means that Earth as a planet may be billions of years.

From Adam to Noah: Genesis chapter 5.

From Shem to Terah (father of Abram (later Abraham)) Genesis chapter 11.

Only 3 people ascended to heaven: Enoch, Jeremiah, and Jesus of Nazareth.
