WHEN AND HOW GOD CREATED MANKIND AS HUMAN SPIRITS BEFORE ADAM WAS BORN

Did you know that the Lord God created you together with Adam and Eve in the beginning of the human life in Genesis chapter 1. When Genesis uses the term “man”, it refers to all of us, not just Adam and Eve.

So, the Hebrew word for man is אָדָם • (adám). These refer to “Person, human, human being, mankind, humankind, or mankind”.

The Hebrew word for man is אָדָם (adam) or אּישׁ (ish). The “out of man” (מֵאִ֖ישׁ meish, also translated me’iysh) in this passage derives from the latter form. Like in Gen 2:23, ish often carries a definite connection with males (as opposed to “mankind”), but has a variety of uses. You can explore the usage of all forms of ish here and meish here. Usage of adam, which more commonly means mankind as a whole than males only, can be found here. The Hebrew word for woman is אִשָּׁ֔ה (ishshah, also transliterated ishah). It normally means woman, female, or wife. You can explore the usage of all forms of ishshah here and the root form (As used in Gen 2:23).

Woow this is good news for us because this shows we have been reconciled back to God as new creations in Christ, glory to God!
