Anonymous asked: I honestly think that Adam and Eve weren't the first humans. I think that God created all humans first, "male and female he created them". And then chapter 2 of Genesis is the beginning of the birthline of Christ. Where else would Cain have gotten his wife unless it was his sister who was in a completely different land? Does that mean I'm not really A Christian? Am I wrong?
Adam and Eve were the first humans.
“For Adam was first formed, then Eve” - 1 Timothy 2:13
&Since Adam was the beginning of the human race when he “fell” this caused all of his descendants (in the future) to “fall” as well. This is why we are all separated from God, because of Adams sin.
“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” - Romans 3:23
But there is good news!! There is a way for us to return to God! &That’s through Jesus.
“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” - John 14:6
You see, because a man brought sin & death into the world, all the descendants of Adam need a sinless Man (Jesus) to pay the penalty for sin and the resulting judgment of death. Jesus never sinned (1 Peter 2:22)(Hebrews 4:15) therefor He was perfectly righteous standing before God. Jesus was the perfect man for the job.
Adam was the first man:
“So it is also written, The first human, Adam, became a living person” - 1 Corinthians 15:45
“From one man He made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands.” - Acts 17:26
And Eve was the first women:
“God said, “It’s not good for the Man to be alone; I’ll make him a helper, a companion.” So God formed from the dirt of the ground all the animals of the field and all the birds of the air. He brought them to the Man to see what he would name them. Whatever the Man called each living creature, that was its name. The Man named the cattle, named the birds of the air, named the wild animals; but he didn’t find a suitable companion.” - Genesis 2:20
Genesis 2:20 tells us that there was no other women around, there was no one of Adams kind. So God decided to create Eve for Adam.
“God put the Man into a deep sleep. As he slept He removed one of his ribs and replaced it with flesh. God then used the rib that He had taken from the Man to make Woman and presented her to the Man. “ - Genesis 2:21-22
“The Man, known as Adam, named his wife Eve because she was the mother of all the living.” - Genesis 3:20
Here is it says that Eve is the mother of all living. Meaning that all people are descendants of Adam and Eve.
Therefor Adam was the first man and Eve was the first woman.
God bless!! <3
