No certainly not, there were many Prophets older than him. The oldest were Prophets Nuh (As) and Adam (As)

I've always found this to be a very interesting topic. how the Prophet's of the ancient world lived on for hundreds of years and how they were giants. Does anyone have any more info on this matter? It would be much appreciated :D

The Bible is wrong if it said 930 years, because according to the Holy Prophet (saw), he lived for 960 years. In Jami' At-Tirmidhi, in the Book of Tafsir, Hadith # 3076 it is written:

Abu Hurairah narrated that the Messenger of Allah (saw) said: “When Allah created Adam He wiped his back and every person that He created among his offspring until the Day of Resurrection fell out of his back. He placed a ray of light between the eyes of every person. Then He showed them to Adam and he said: ‘O Lord! Who are these people?’ He said: ‘These are your offspring.’ He saw one of them whose ray between his eyes amazed him, so he said: ‘O Lord! Who is this?’ He said: ‘This is a man from the latter nations of your offspring called Dawud.’ He said: ‘Lord! How long did You make his lifespan?’ He said: ‘Sixty years.’ He said: ‘O Lord! Add forty years from my life, to his.’ So at the end of Adam’s life the Angel of death came to him, and he said: ‘Do I not have forty years remaining?’ He said: ‘Did you not give them to your son Dawud?’” He said: “Adam denied, so his offspring denied, and Adam forgot and his offspring forgot, and Adam sinned, so his offspring sinned.” (Hasan)
[Abu ‘Eisa said:] This Hadith is Hasan Sahih. It has been reported through other routes from Abu Hurairah from the Prophet (saw).

Allah said, having made His Hands closed: “Select any one of them.” Adam said: “I select the right hand and both the hands of my Lord are right and blessed.” Then Allah spread it. There was Adam and his generation. Adam asked: “O Lord! Who are these people?” Allah said: “They are your children.” Every human being’s life is written between his eyes. Among them was a man with the brightest face. For him was written only forty years of age. Adam said: “O Lord! Who is this fellow?” Allah said: “This is your son Dawood [David]. His life span is written forty years.” Adam said: “O Lord! Increase his age.” Allah said: “This is what I have written down for him.” He said: “Then I give him sixty years of my age.” Allah said: “This is between you and him. Live in Paradise.”

He lived there as long as Allah wished. Then he was descended from it to earth. Adam was counting his age. Then the angel of death came to him. Adam said to him: “You have come earlier. For me, one thousand years have been written.” The angel said: “Yes, but out of them you have given sixty years to your son Dawood.” Adam denied that so his successors also denied. He forgot, so his successors also forgot. From that day, Allah ordered writing down and making witnesses (for pledges).

This hadith is sound and reported by Ibn Abi Asim, Ibn Hibbaan and Hakim in his mustadrak.

This link provides interesting debate over the hadith quoted by Br Ahmed H
