‘adam is the Hebrew word for man.

Genesis 1:26-30

1.        ‘adam was made in the image of God, not God in the image of
man.
2.        ‘adam was to populate the earth by reproduction. That takes
male and female.
3.        ‘adam was given dominion over all creation.

11:7; Eph 4:24; Col 3:10; Jas 3:9; Ge 5:2; Mal 2:15; Mt 19:4; Mr 10:6;

104:14-15; 136:25; 146:7; Ac 14:17; Job 38:41; Ps 145:15-16; 147:9

Genesis 2:5-7

1.        The creation of man is now dealt with in detail. Man is the
zenith of creation.
2.        This is not a second creation, this is a more detailed look at
the creation of Genesis 1.
3.        Man is made of dust (actually red clay dust – which is
approximately the same chemical composition as a person).
4.        Man becomes a living soul by the breath of God. He is given
life in a different manner than is described for any other living thing.
This is indicative of man having a soul.

Genesis 2:8-25

1.        ‘adam was placed in the garden with work to do.
2.        ‘adam was an intelligent man, able to name all of the animals
(capable of taxonomy).
3.        The complement of man was woman, not any animal, or even
another man.
4.        ‘adam realized that woman was “bone of my bones, and flesh
of my flesh.”
5.        ‘adam states that the relationship with his wife was to
supersede the relationship to father and mother. When a man takes
a wife, she is his main concern. Cut the apron strings. This does not
change the responsibility to care for one’s parents, but the
relationship with the spouse takes precedent.
6.        From the beginning, we find the proper attitude toward
marriage & family.
7.        ‘adam was totally ignorant of morality, even to the point of
being unaware that he was naked. He had no shame.

Genesis 3:1-8

1.        ‘adam followed his wife into sin, rather than being obedient to
God.
2.        The fruit opened his eyes to right and wrong.
3.        To cover his shame (his nakedness) he put together a
covering of fig leaves.
4.        He attempted to hide from God, rather than to admit his sin.

Genesis 3:9-12

1.        Only when confronted, did ‘adam admit his sin.
2.        He pointed the finger at someone else as the cause.
3.        He hid behind his wife.

Ge 3:4; 2Co 11:3; 1Ti 2:14

Genesis 3:17-19

1.        There were consequences to the disobedience.
      a.        Death
      b.        Cursing of the ground
      c.        Labor (sweat of brow, not sweat of frau).

Genesis 3:21-24

1.        God provides them with a more substantial covering with
“coats of skins.”
2.        Skins are seen by many to be the result of the need of blood
sacrifice.
3.        The ultimate price for man’s sin is expulsion from the garden,
and denial to the tree of life.
4.        The theme of the rest of the Bible is man regaining right to the
tree of life, and that fellowship with God.

See also: Ge 2:9; 3:5; Isa 19:12; 47:12-13; Jer 22:23; Ge 4:2; 9:20;
Ge 2:8-9; Ps 104:4; Eze 31:3,11; Heb 1:7

Mankind shares in the results of ‘adam’s sin, but not in the guilt. The
Bible plainly teaches that we face judgment, not for the sins of our
parents (whether Adam, or those who are closer in our lineage), but
for only our own sin.
