"Was Enoch the sixth or the seventh from Adam?" (Alleged Contradiction #E8872)
And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints …
However, other passages seem to indicate that he is the sixth from Adam: Adam > Seth > Enos > Cainan > Mahalaleel > Jared > Enoch (see Genesis 5:3-18; I Chronicles 1:1-2; and Luke 3:37-38)
Enoch is the seventh from Adam if you include Adam (inclusive numbering). If Adam and Eve made up the first generation, Enoch was in the seventh. There is no contradiction.
