Methuselah is listed in the book of Genesis as a descendant of Adam through his third son, Seth. His father, Enoch, was so close to God that one day, while out walking, God simply took him home to heaven. Methuselah's son was called Lamech and his grandson was Noah - the person who built the Ark and protected his family from the flood. Methuselah is best known as the oldest person recorded in the Bible, living to 969 years.
All of Methuselah's story is found in Genesis, chapter 5, verses 21 to 32.
