    TRUE or FALSE:

    1) Methuselah, age 969 years at his death, died before his father died.

    2) Methuselah was considered to be an omen of God's judgment to mankind.

    Please explain your answers to the above in some detail.

    1. Enoch walked with God, and God took him. So I guess you could say that the son was outlived by the father....so to speak.

    2. I never thought of this as an omen....but I suppose it could be if you take his death to mark the flood. I've seen his name stated as meaning "man of the spear," but I've also seen it as "his death brings judgment." (I guess a better answer would require one to validate those claims).
