Ever heard of Adam (and Eve)?
If you are a Christian, of course you have. Why? Other than Jesus, Adam is probably the most central figure in the Christian Faith: Without Adam there would have been no Fall; without the Fall, mankind would not need a Savior; therefore, without Adam, the crucifixion of Jesus would not have been necessary.
Adam is mentioned numerous times in the New Testament and in the Book of Genesis. But guess how many times Adam is mentioned in the Jewish Bible, outside of the Book of Genesis.
When the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.
1 Chronicles 1:1
Adam, Sheth, Enosh,
If I covered my transgressions as Adam, by hiding mine iniquity in my bosom:
Now isn’t that really odd? Why would the Hebrews only mention the first man ever created by God three times outside of the Book of Genesis in their Sacred Scriptures?
It makes you wonder, doesn’t it?
