  • Who died first - Adam or Eve?
  • Were Adam and Eve buried after their deaths?

    @Jess: Welcome to Christianity.SE! StackExchange sites are a bit different from other discussion-type sites such as forums. The Answer feature really is only for answering questions. If you have comments on a question or an answer, please use the Comments instead. I've converted your answer to a comment, since it fits better as one. Thanks for your participation, though.

Adam (and presumably Eve) simply died of old age.

Genesis 5:5 (NIV)
5 Altogether, Adam lived a total of 930 years, and then he died.

As for where they're buried, I don't think that's recorded anywhere in the Bible. Who died first certainly isn't recorded; that bit of trivia likely wouldn't have been important to people of the time.

  • I agree that who died when is trivia. The fact that anyone was dying at all is the biggest headline at this stage in Earth's history. – Reinstate Monica - Goodbye SE Oct 21 '13 at 20:10
