Adam, and the Second Adam?

March 8, 2009 9:48am CST
The Hebrew word Adam can mean 'man' or dirt, depending on its pronunciation and how it is used grammatical in a sentence. It has become a proper noun among the "first" man. Jesus is often called the second Adam, likewise Adam is called the anti type Christ, because the first Adam failed and sin and death entered the world, Jesus the Second Adam succeeded and brought life eternal. There is also a spiritual connection to this. that is the physical body dies and brings forth a spiritual body. 1 Corinthians 15:42-46 explains this. Lets rock the boat. Is the Adam we speak of truly the first man? If you look in chapter on of geneses, on day six God creates Man and Woman together, and tells them to replenish the earth. But in chapter Two we read after the seventh day and after Gods rest, he was walking in the garden and found no man to till the soil. so he formed man out of the dust of the ground and blew into his nostrils and he (Adam) became a living soul. What how is this? I thought he was created on day six. Their are two explanations for this. Some suggest that this is just a summary of what was already discussed in chapter one in more depth, because it also mentioned there were no plants. But I take this differently, meaning their were no fields or crops because of the Hebrew words mentioned. Stating there was no man to plant fields. So this would make sense, Sometime in the past God had created men and women, but created a new man for a special purpose, and even later yet he made Eve, because he found no OTHER Suitable mate, If Adam was the only man of course there were no suitable mates, was he too mate with a beast of the field? but if there were other "men and women" here, this makes more sense, God looked at the others and said, no I will make a suitable mate for him and not let him mate with the others. Isn't this really the whole story of the bible? A people set apart from the rest of the world and peoples? This would also explain who and what happened after Cain killed Able, Cain went to the land of Nod (meaning wilderness or wondering) and knew his wife, and build a city. What where did the wife come from? Why build a city for two? No if there were other older races of man on earth then he took a wife from these races, wondering suggest a nomadic people, So what it is saying here is that Cain married into a Nematic older race of man and taught them to stop being hunter gatherers, and how to plant fields, and build cities, The Cities mentioned are those of the Akkadian and later peoples. So this also suggest the beginning's of the Hebrew tribes and the nations, or Hebrew and Gentile

Are you referring to the Spiritual Perfect Man? I can Jesus being the Perfect Man. It gives relevance to Adam returning to dust, and when Adam is ressurected in the Christ he is the Perfected Man. It would be a possibility that Cain possibly married into the Akkadians. We know that they were to the North and Sumer was to the South.
