]Dear Gramps,

I seem to remember reading that Cain is still on the earth somewhere. If this is true what do we know about it and where can I find out more information. Thank you

Sue, from Australia

Dear Sue,

WRONG!!! The only thing known about Cain and his descendants is given in Genesis 4:16-24. The date of birth and the age of Cain and his descendants are unknown. Cain’s punishment for having murdered his brother was to be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth (Genesis 4:12), but that in now way implies that he would continue in mortality beyond his normal life span.
