Thread: Name of Adam

  1. #1
    Mysteryman Guest

    Name of Adam

    Throughout the Word of God, names are given which is associated with that paticular individual.

    Jacob means - following after

    Israel means - ruling with God

    The word - Red - is the Hebrew word - "adam"

    All of mankind is red, but lighter and darker shades of red.

    Some people teach that there are "races", but this is false.

    There are no "races", just nations and people all of the one man Adam.

    Good point, the red comes from the color of blood which can be seen through the translucent skin. I agree there are no 'races' and it would be nice if we didn't think in terms of race. The external features that make us look different are superficial.

    Acts 17:26-27
    26 And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, 27 so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us

    Red can also be the color of the dirt Adam was made from

    G_d was gracious He has shown favor


    Hope is a seed

    Adam is the Hebrew word for 'mankind, humanity'.

    This is correct. God formed man out of the dust of the red earth. It is not written as such, but the word "red" is - "adam"

    God created man in his own image - male and female in the "One" man Adam.

    Our "likeness" means similar.

    All of mankind comes from the one man Adam, and we are only shades of that red. Darker or lighter

    An ape FriendofIam?

    And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

    So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

    And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
    Genesis 1:26-28.

    Could an ape have dominion over the fish of the sea...

    He could have still been a type of ape...couldn't have "make man in our image" just have meant create men from apes through the process of evolution?(sic)

    I agree.

    2Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.

    Scripture clearly says that man was made in God's image from the dust of the ground (not from a previously created animal of any kind).

    Gen 2:7

    7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.

    Helo ѕтєρнєη,

    Well another point could be, A&E they spoke with God, but apes/monkeys do not speak:

    And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?

    And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.

    And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?

    And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.

    And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. Genesis 3:9-13.

    humanity, ground, blood and the name "Adam" in Hebrew

    The Hebrew word "adam", as I understand it, is the word used for "human person" or "humanity" or "humankind" or "man" throughout the Tanach (OT, Old Testament). For instance when our translation of Genesis 1:26 says "Then God said let us make man in our own image" the Hebrew says "let us make "adam" in our own image. While there is a separate word for "male human being" (ish) that is occasionally used, generally, the word translated "man" in our Bible translations is always "adam". Thus this word sometimes refers to a particular person, Adam, and sometimes to humanity or humankind, or a human person in general.

    The Hebrew word for "ground" is the word "adamah". Both humanity and the ground are thought of as ruddy, or reddish-brown, stuff. Both words, as I understand, are derived from the Hebrew word for blood "dam" (pronounced "dawm", roughly). The whole Genesis 2-4 narrative, IMO, becomes flooded with additional insight if you read it realizing that.
