Ok I have just got through reading "Gleanings in Exodus" by Arthur Pink, and It was so good I thought I would read "Gleanings in Genesis"
In reading through Genesis a few times it occurred to me that the Greeks gave us the 365 day year, which occurred much after Moses day, so when he talks about people (not just Saints I suppose) living 900 years old what kind of year are we talking about?
I will also say if someone asked me this question my first thought would be that they were trying to explain away a biblical truth. But that is not my intention, If you tell me that a calendar year was 1200 days long I would be just as fine believing that as I would anything, I belive it is clear that they lived much longer than us. Anyway, my question is honest, and if the answer is in Mr. Pink's book I haven't found it yet
Thanks in advanced for all input <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/ClapHands.gif" alt="" />
