|Children||Cain, Abel, Seth|
Adam ♂ (man ), was the first man to live on earth.
Adam was created by God from the dust of the ground and was then put into the garden of Eden. There God allowed him to eat anything except from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Then when God made all the living creatures He brought them to Adam so that he could name them. But Adam did not find anybody to live with. So God made him a helper called Eve out of a part of him (traditionally a rib).
When Eve gave him the apple of the tree of knowledge of good and evil thy suddenly realized they were naked. Because God did not want them to eat from the tree of life too, He threw them out of Eden.
The birth year 0 of Adam is an educated guess. The birth and death year of the genealogy from Seth to Noah is based on this estimation.
When Adam was 130 years old, Seth was born. After this he had other sons and dauthers about whom we don't know anything. Adam died when he was 930 years old.
