I’ve read the Bible many times before trying to write a book about it. My decision for writing such a book comes from the many questions that jump out looking for answers that I just don’t have.
In the Bible we find in Genesis, chapter 3 vs. 20 the name Eve. The verse references the name that Adam gave to his wife and the reason for Adam’s selection of that name. One of the interesting words I find in that verse is the word “wife”. A word at that time in history had no meaning or purpose without perhaps the act of their being marriage in heaven, or marriage on earth outside of the garden of Eden to those upon earth before God’s creation of Adam and Eve. (Ref chapter 1 vs. 26)
When considering how Eve received her name, another verse bothers me in Genesis chapter 2 vs. 20, were we see the name Adam used for the first time. Sad to say without any reference to when received, why the name Adam was given, or by whom given. I question that because in Genesis chapter 3 vs 21 God said, “The man has now become one of us, knowing good and evil.” Implying perhaps that there were others from heaven present in the garden that he was speaking too that perhaps wouldn’t have recognize the name Adam.
One question can certainly create additional questions.
