Note the plural "them".

Later in the chapter (verse 31) it is mentioned that it was the end of the sixth day.

31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

In Genesis 2, it mentions the end of creation, and the 7th day of rest.

3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Prior to the creation of Adam, men and women were just like animals. Soulless creatures. No different than a dog or a cat. It wasn't until God breathed a soul into him, that people gained a soul.

Later, when Adam and Eve ate the fruit, the rest of humanity became self aware.

Hope this helps explain my belief.

Brother V,

I have been in prayer all day over this and am still waiting for the Holy Spirit to guide me.

Your interpretation is vastly different from what I learned in the pews. I was always told there was but one man and one woman, created in His image and, therefore, clearly above simple and soul less animals.

The biggest obstacle I see is reconciliation in which day of creation Adam (or "the man") was created. But we are clearly told that one male and one female were at least first created on day 6.

Genesis 1: 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

This is "plural" only in the sense of two, or a pair. God did not say he created males and females.

If other men and women existed prior to Adam and Eve, why do we have no genealogies of them? We have extensive documention beginning with Cain and Seth, but nothing at all from any other original pairs.

Did they only produce females? If so, it would make sense as we know that women are of little importance beyond producing male offspring for Jesus.

More prayer tonight for sure.

Yours in Christ Jesus!


Matthew 19:14 "But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven."
