I am having a lot of trouble understanding the order of the following events:

The creation of Man

The births of Cain and Hevel

The death of Hevel

The snake

Eating from the tree

The first Shabbos

The births of Cain's children

Cain's death

The expulsion from Eden

Adam's separation from Chava

Adam's teshuva

Cain's teshuva

The birth of Shet

Disappearance (how?) of the original Gan Eden and the Eitz Chayim

Could someone put them in order for me? Preferably include the hour, or at least day, during which each thing happened.

Other than for facts about which all meforshim agree, please provide sources (or better yet, a single source).

  • I guess we can say you are not confused in that the "creation of man" was pretty early on the list? :) Yes its true that there seems to be conflicting Medrash on this order. – David Kenner Dec 21 '18 at 3:38
  • The last thing on your list doesn't appear in the parasha at all afaict. – msh210 Dec 21 '18 at 6:24
  • @msh210 Does it appear anywhere? – SAH Dec 22 '18 at 23:59
