This is a study of the Old Testament.  We won’t study every story in the Old Testament but I want to connect some
of the dots.  We will learn if the early humans committed incest in order to populate the world?  We will also learn
how the twelve tribes of Israel came about?

Let’s begin.

Genesis 2:7  Then the Lord God formed man (Adam) from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the
breath of life, and the man became a living being.

Adam was the first person on the earth.  He was flesh and bones until he took his first breath and be-
came a living being.  Of course, God gave Adam a soul as well.

Genesis 2:22  Then the Lord God made woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to
the man.

Genesis 3:20  Adam named his wife Eve, because she would become the mother of all the living.

Adam and Eve were the first people to live on the earth.  In the Hebrew language, Adam means “to be red.”
This may refer to the ruddy color of the human skin since Adam was made from the ground of the earth.  In the
Hebrew language Eve means “source of life.”  She was the mother of all the living.

The Hebrew language was spoken by Noah and was probably the first language spoken by mankind.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
