  1. Trying to answer SS class question. Why did they live so many years longer in bible times than now. We’re the days, months, years the same amount of time as our present days are

  2. It is my belief, Time has never changed since Gods Creation. He said The sun and the moon knows its course ( not a quote) Also as you read, God limited mans days to 120 years then to Three Score and Seventy!
