lunlor Editors Quiz on- BIBLE QUIZ QUESTION: How eld was Methuselah? ANSWER: Methuselah gained his niche in history as the oldest men mentioned in the Bible. Genesis says this Hebrew patriarch died at the ripe old age of 969 in the year of the Great Flood. Samaritan manuscripts list his age as 720, and other writings report he died six years before the flood. The Bible says he was the grandfather of Noah, who built the Ark. Many scholars today think that the idea of such an advanced age' has its roots in Babylonian mythology. Some Babylonian heroes were said to have lived ,36,000 years. Other scholars think that the writer who credited Methuselah with such a great age had in mlnd'a "year" only a month or so long. Today, many old persons are called Methuselah*.
