Notes
a. Note:   NI5667
Note:   Adam - red, a Babylonian word, the generic name for man, having t he same meaning in the Hebrew and the Assyrian languages. It was the nam e given to the first man, whose creation, fall, and subsequent history an d that of his descendants are detailed in the first book of Moses (Gen. 1 :27-ch. 5). "God created man [Heb., Adam] in his own image, in the imag e of God created he him; male and female created he them." Adam was absolutely the first man whom God created. He was formed out o f the dust of the earth (and hence his name), and God breathed into his n ostrils the breath of life, and gave him dominion over all the lower crea tures (Gen. 1:26; 2:7). He was placed after his creation in the Garden o f Eden, to cultivate it, and to enjoy its fruits under this one prohibiti on: "Of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil thou shalt not eat o f it; for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die." The first recorded act of Adam was his giving names to the beasts of th e field and the fowls of the air, which God brought to him for this end . Thereafter the Lord caused a deep sleep to fall upon him, and while i n an unconscious state took one of his ribs, and closed up his flesh agai n; and of this rib he made a woman, whom he presented to him when he awok e. Adam received her as his wife, and said, "This is now bone of my bones , and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was take n out of Man." He called her Eve, because she was the mother of all livin g. Being induced by the tempter in the form of a serpent to eat the forbidde n fruit, Eve persuaded Adam, and he also did eat. Thus man fell, and brou ght upon himself and his posterity all the sad consequences of his transg ression. The narrative of the Fall comprehends in it the great promise o f a Deliverer (Gen. 3:15), the "first gospel" message to man. They were e xpelled from Eden, and at the east of the garden God placed a flame, whic h turned every way, to prevent access to the tree of life (Gen. 3). How l ong they were in Paradise is matter of mere conjecture. Shortly after their expulsion Eve brought forth her first-born, and calle d him Cain. Although we have the names of only three of Adam's sons, viz. , Cain, Abel, and Seth, yet it is obvious that he had several sons and da ughters (Gen. 5:4). He died aged 930 years. Adam and Eve were the progenitors of the whole human race. Evidences of v aried kinds are abundant in proving the unity of the human race. The inve stigations of science, altogether independent of historical evidence, lea d to the conclusion that God "hath made of one blood all nations of men f or to dwell on all the face of the earth" (Acts 17:26. Comp. Rom. 5:12-12 ; 1 Cor. 15:22-49).
