Adam and Eve's Children Numbered?

How many sons did Adam and Eve have? Or more specifically: How Many Children Did Adam and Eve Have?

  1. According to The Bible, Adam and Eve had mentioned-by-name sons - Cain, Abel and Seth.
  2. But according to Genesis 5:4 Adam also had other sons and daughters.
  3. Some believe that in Adam and Eve's family tree the married couple had 33 sons and 22 daughters. It is of course possible, given the life span at that time, but we do not have specifics from Scripture to label this as biblical truth.

How Did Their Sons Reproduce? Who were The Wives Of Adam and Eve's Sons?

  1. Some ask, if they had 3 sons, where did their wives come from? Since we know that the human family came from Adam, it is plausible to believe that the daughters of Adam and Eve were chosen as wives for their sons since there would be no one else to reproduce with.
  2. Prohibitions against incest were introduced later, in part, likely, due to the increased risk of birth defects and genetic abnormalities that result as the state of the fall progressed in time.
  3. How did Adam and Eve's sons reproduce? They most likely reproduced with their sisters, the daughters of the first married couple. But we do not have conclusive biblical evidence of this fact.

Famous Story of Cain Killing Abel

  1. And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.
  2. And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
  3. And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.
  4. And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering:
  5. But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.
  6. And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?
  7. [If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.
  8. And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.
  9. And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?
  10. And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground.
  11. And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand;
  12. When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.
  13. And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear.
  14. Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and
  15. I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.

What About Adam's Sons and Daughters in Genesis 5?

  1. This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;
  2. Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.
  3. And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, and after his image; and called his name Seth:
  4. And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters:
  5. And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.
