Notes for Adam:
His name in Hebrew is: אדם ‘Âdâm (aw-dawm) Strongs #121, to show blood, flush, red.
In Greek: Άδάμ Adam (ad-am) man; Strongs #76.
Adam was not born, but created by his Father, Yahvah using the dust of the Earth.
However, Adam was not created in Eden, but some place outside the area and then
put in Yahvah’s garden to tend it. (2)
About one week after Adam’s creation, his Father brought every animal for him to
name, in which he saw that the animals had a male and female. Adam searched for
a companion for himself, but could not find one.
Yahvah saw that it was not good that His son did not have a help meet, so He caused
Adam to sleep deeply, so that Yahvah was able to remove a rib to form a companion.
After this creation, Adam called her “woman.”
Seven years after being created, the serpent tempted Adam’s wife to eat of the forbidden
fruit. Adam’s wife gave of the fruit to him in which he ate also. Trying to hide
their sin and nakedness with fig leaves, Yahvah soon cursed Adam and his wife and
put them out of the garden. Adam’s curse was for thorns and thistles would grow
along with what he planted, and by the sweat of his brow shall he eat bread.
Since Adam was created in the likeness of his Father, his body showed forth light,
(3) so Adam knew no darkness until after the fall.
Adam was told that when he ate of the fruit of good and evil, he would die in day
that he ate of it. Adam and Eve were immortal until they ate of the fruit, and became
mortal afterwards. According to Yahvah, one day is one thousand years. Therefore,
Adam did die in the day he ate of the fruit according to Yahvah.
Adam did have several children, but only a few are mentioned in Scripture. Cain
and Abel seemed to have been born shortly after Adam and Eve left Eden.
Adam lived until the age of 930, so he was able to talk to his 6th great-grandson,
Lamech for 53 years and his 5th great-grandson Methuselah for 240 years.
Adam was 130 when he had Seth.
