“And The Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being.” (Genesis 2:7).
“The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be all alone.” (Genesis 2:18)
“So The Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, He took one of the man’s ribs [also translated took part of the man’s side] and closed up the place with flesh. Then The Lord God made a woman from the rib He had taken out of the man, and He brought her to the man. The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.” For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.” (Genesis 2:21-24)
One day when Adam was sleeping he felt someone’s hand running all over his body only to wake up realize that it was Eve. Adam asked Eve, “What are you doing beloved? Don’t you see I’m tired working all day and i need some sleep?” Well here many of us has a misunderstanding that Adam and Eve had to work only after they were expelled from the garden of Eden. No. “The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.” (Genesis 2:15). So it was not no work all play. Adam had to work from the first day. So coming to the point. When Adam woke up and asked Eve this question, she answered “Keep quiet man. I’m just checking if any other bone in your body is missing”. Well Adam got amused and wondered what she really meant.
But Eve was right. When she was going around the garden, she vaguely saw another women only for her to come back and check Adam’s body. Well doubting one’s partner would have had its roots there, we don’t know. Anyway there’s every reason to believe that because Adam had many sons and daughters.
This is the book of the generations of Adam. When God created man, he made him in the likeness of God. Male and female he created them, and he blessed them and named them Man when they were created. When Adam had lived 130 years, he fathered a son in his own likeness, after his image, and named him Seth. The days of Adam after he fathered Seth were 800 years; and he had other sons and daughters. Thus all the days that Adam lived were 930 years, and he died (Genesis 5: 1-32) and I’m in no way ready to believe that God would promote Incest in any way. God is a powerful force and if that power could create the whole universe and everything in it, he also was powerful enough in his plans on procreation in this world.
If God created another man and women too, then why it’s not written in the holy scriptures. Well the first one always gets the credit and the world works that way right? And it was human beings who wrote the holy scriptures. Even though i agree that they were written by the wisdom that came from God, a little bit of human bias would have definitely gone into those writings.
I will give an example. It is said that satan tempted Eve to have the forbidden fruit and satan is picturised as a snake that appeared to Eve. So why snake? Satan loved snakes a lot or what to take that form in making his first appearance in front of an human which was the most amazing creation in this universe. The book of Genesis in which these incidents are depicted is known as the book of Moses among other first four books of the Bible. So when Moses led the Israelites from the bondage of Pharaoh and lived in the desert, the biggest enemy and fear of those people were desert snakes which is again written in the Bible. So it explains the whole thing right.
Okay so coming finally to the point again that why only Adam and Eve was known, well let me ask you a question. Most of you know that it was Neil Armstrong who landed on the Moon first. Around twelve people have landed on the moon and can you please name the second person who did that?
Peace & Love
