Who was older, Adam or Eve?

I think there are two versions of the story. In one, Adam is older, but in the other they are the same age.

Well no one really knows, but I would guess Adam since Adam was made before Eve.

The Bible says that Adam was made, then he made Eve. So that means that Adam is older assuming you are talking about the biblical characters not like random people you know....

If you read Genesis 2:15-25 it says that God first created Adam. Hope I helped!

I think they were the same age because age didn't matter until they ate the apple

Being you cannot trace back Male lineage very far back through genetics, it would be very difficult to tell who happened first, our original male human of the female.
But In biblical terms and tracing back Jewish tradition Eve would be younger, because she was Adams second wife.

Did was Adams 1st wife Lilith, referred to in the bible.

In chapter 1 it says he created "them", then in chapter 2 he created Adam then created eve from his rib. The Kaballic Jews believe Lilith was created in chapter 1 and eventually refused to be subornate to Adam so she left and then god created eve from Adams rib, to show that she is under man.

This is a bizarre Q, but Adam was made first.

Both the same age. Adam was made both male and female. God took the female part out of Adam and called it woman. Adam named her Eve. But they were both made at the same time.

Technically Adam was created first so that makes him 'older'either by just a few minutes or longer depending in your views. Remember at the time of creation there was no death or decay so no aging, no getting old, so really neither was 'older' or 'younger'. Whenever Eve was created Adam was still in exactly the same state as when he was created whether a few minutes or a thousand years passed between the two.

Adam simply means humanity. Eve roughly means mother. Some genetic studies have indicated that all human life descends from one African woman. Based on this, it seems that proto-Eve came before Adam.

Literarily speaking, humanity was introduced before the mother of humanity was introduced. In Genesis 1, humanity was created male and female. In Genesis 2, a male human was created and given a wife by his side to be his partner. In Genesis 3, the male stands idly by while a snake flirts with his wife. Later the male names his wife Eve, who then bears a child and becomes the mother.

For Adam was first formed, then Eve. (1 Timothy 2:13 KJV). From the LQQKS of it Adam would be the older one. =======================================And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. (Genesis 2:20-23 KJV)

If you read the Bible it will say that God made Adam. Then He put Adam into a deep sleep and opened up his chest. God took out a rib and closed up his flesh. Then God took the rib and made Eve. This is why all women have one more rib than men do.

I didn't know that about the extra rib, I knew about the Adam's apple

See? Learn something new every day. If you read Genesis (first book in the Bible) it says that in there.

According to the Old Testament in the bible Adam was made before eve so he is obliviously older but I don't think either of them existed anyways.

Everyone here is at the same conclusion. Adam is indeed older than Eve. God created Adam first. Adam began to notice that the animals all had mates. God saw this and put Adam in a deep sleep. He then removed one of Adam's ribs and thus created Eve.
