You remember how I said in my first post that I want this blog to be a journey that you and I can take together?
Well, that means I will be sharing with you the questions I have when I go through the Bible, along with an answer. I am blessed to have a lot of people in my life who help me on my journey. So even if I am not able to find an answer myself, I have them to help me. I want to make sure that you get the most out of this blog.
Today’s question is a bit amusing.
Who named Adam, the first man, ‘Adam’?
In the book of Genesis, though you see Adam himself naming many animals you don’t see God naming Adam or Adam naming himself. Then how did the name come about.
You see, taking the circumstances, this amusing question has an equally amusing answer! When God made Adam, how many men were there on this earth?
You see, if there is just one person on this planet, names become insignificant. You have a name to distinguish yourself because you live on a planet with more than 7.5 billion people. Since Adam was the only person around as a human being when God made him, his name didn’t really matter.
Okay……………..But why ‘Adam’? Why not some other name?
This is also easily explained. The word ‘Adam’ in Hebrew means ‘man’. The best name considering the situation, don’t you think?
