Adam
Adam
(Hebrew: אָדָם‬, Modern ʼAdam, Tiberian ʼĀḏām; Arabic: آدَم‎, translit. ʾĀdam; Greek: Αδάμ, translit. Adám) is the name used in the opening chapters of the Book of Genesis
Book of Genesis
for the first man created by God, but it is also used in a collective sense as "mankind" and individually as "a human".[1] Biblical Adam
Adam
(man, mankind) is created from adamah (earth), and Genesis 1-8 makes considerable play of the bond between them, for Adam
Adam
is estranged from the earth through his disobedience.[2]

Origin and usage[edit]

And Elohim Created Adam William Blake

The majority view among scholars is that the book of Genesis dates from the Persian Empire (the 5th and 4th centuries BCE),[3] but the absence from the rest of the Hebrew Bible
Bible
of all the other characters and incidents mentioned in chapters 1-11 of Genesis, ( Adam
Adam
appears only in chapters 1-5, with the exception of a mention at the beginning of the Books of Chronicles
Books of Chronicles
where, as in Genesis, he heads the list of Israel's ancestors[4]) has led a sizable minority to the conclusion that Genesis 1-11 was composed much later, possibly in the 3rd century BCE.[5] The Bible
Bible
uses the word אָדָם ( 'adam ) in all of its senses: collectively ("mankind", 1:27), individually (a "man", 2:7), gender nonspecific ("man and woman", 5:1,2), and male (2:23-24).[1] In Genesis 1:27 "adam" is used in the collective sense, and the interplay between the individual "Adam" and the collective "humankind" is a main literary component to the events that occur in the Garden of Eden, the ambiguous meanings embedded throughout the moral, sexual, and spiritual terms of the narrative reflecting the complexity of the human condition.[6] Genesis 2:7 is the first verse where "Adam" takes on the sense of an individual man (the first man), and the context of sex and gender is absent; the gender distinction of "adam" is then reiterated in Genesis 5:1–2 by defining "male and female".[1] A recurring literary motif is the bond between Adam
Adam
and the earth (adamah): God
God
creates Adam
Adam
by molding him out of clay in the final stages of the creation narrative. After the loss of innocence, God curses Adam
Adam
and the earth as punishment for his disobiedience. Adam and humanity is cursed to die and return to the earth (or ground) from which he was formed.[7] This "earthly" aspect is a component of Adam's identity, and Adam's curse of estrangement from the earth seems to describe humankind's divided nature of being earthly yet separated from nature.[7] God
God
himself who took of the dust from all four corners of the earth with each color (red, black, white, and green) then created Adam
Adam
therewith,[8] where the soul of Adam
Adam
is the image of God.[9] In the Hebrew Bible

Main articles: Adam and Eve
Adam and Eve
and Genesis creation narrative Genesis 1 tells of God's creation of the world and its creatures, with humankind as the last of his creatures: "Male and female created He them, and blessed them, and called their name Adam ..." (Genesis 5:2). God
God
blesses mankind, commands them to "be fruitful and multiply," and gives them "dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth" (Genesis 1.26-27). In Genesis 2, God
God
forms "Adam", this time meaning a single male human, out of "the dust of the ground" and "breathed into his nostrils the breath of life" (Genesis 2:7). God
God
then places this first man in the Garden of Eden, telling him that "Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die" (Genesis 2:16-17). God
God
notes that "It is not good that the man should be alone" (Genesis 2:18) and brings the animals to Adam, who gives them their names, but among all the animals there was not found a companion for him (Genesis 2:20). God
God
causes a deep sleep to fall upon Adam
Adam
and forms a woman (Genesis 2:21-22), and Adam
Adam
awakes and greets her as his helpmate. Genesis 3, the story of the Fall: A serpent persuades the woman to disobey God's command and eat of the tree of knowledge, which gives wisdom. Woman convinces Adam
Adam
to do likewise, whereupon they become conscious of their nakedness, cover themselves, and hide from the sight of God. God
God
questions Adam, who blames the woman. God
God
passes judgment, first upon the serpent, condemned to go on his belly, then the woman, condemned to pain in childbirth and subordination to her husband, and finally Adam, who is condemned to labour on the earth for his food and to return to it on his death.[10] God
God
then expels the man and woman from the garden, lest they eat of the Tree of Life and become immortal. The chiastic structure of the death oracle given to Adam
Adam
in 3:19 forms a link between man's creation from "dust" (2:7) to the "return" of his beginnings.[11]

A you return

B to the ground

C since (kî ) from it you were taken C' for (kî ) dust you are

B' and to dust

A' you will return

Genesis 4 deals with the birth of Adam's sons Cain
Cain
and Abel
Abel
and the story of the first murder, followed by the birth of a third son, Seth. Genesis 5, the Book of the Generations of Adam, lists the descendants of Adam
Adam
from Seth
Seth
to Noah
Noah
with their ages at the birth of their first sons (except Adam
Adam
himself, for whom his age at the birth of Seth, his third son, is given) and their ages at death ( Adam
Adam
lives 930 years). The chapter notes that Adam
Adam
had other sons and daughters after Seth, but does not name them. Post-Biblical Jewish traditions[edit]

Adam Lucas Cranach the Elder

Main article: Adam
Adam
in rabbinic literature Adam
Adam
possessed a body of light, identical to the light created by God on the first day.[12] According to Jewish mystical tradition the original glory of Adam
Adam
can be regained through mystical contemplation of God.[2] The rabbis, puzzled by the verse of Genesis 1 which states that God created man and woman together, told that when God
God
created Adam
Adam
he also created a woman from the dust, as he had created Adam, and named her Lilith; but the two could not agree, for Adam
Adam
wanted Lilith to lie under him, and Lilith insisted that Adam
Adam
should lie under her, and so she fled from him, and Eve
Eve
was created from Adam's rib.[13] Her story was greatly developed, during the Middle Ages, in the tradition of Aggadic midrashim, the Zohar
Zohar
and Jewish mysticism. Other rabbis explained the same verse as meaning that Adam
Adam
was created with two faces, male and female, or as a single hermaphrodite being, male and female joined back to back, but God
God
saw that this made walking and conversing difficult, and so split them apart.[14] The serpent approached Eve
Eve
rather than Adam
Adam
because Adam
Adam
had heard the word of God
God
with his own ears, whereas Eve
Eve
had only his report; Eve tasted the fruit and knew at once that she was doomed to death, and said to herself that it was better she trick Adam
Adam
into eating so that he too would die, and not take another woman in her place.[15] Adam ate the fruit unaware of what he was doing, and was filled with grief.[15] When Adam
Adam
blamed Eve
Eve
after eating the forbidden fruit, God rebuked him that Adam
Adam
as a man should not have obeyed his wife, for he is the head, not her.[16] Adam
Adam
withdrew from Eve
Eve
for 130 years after their expulsion from Eden, and in this time both he and Eve
Eve
had sex with demons, until at length they reunited and Eve
Eve
gave birth to Seth.[13] The 2nd century BCE Book of Jubilees tells how Adam
Adam
had a daughter, Awân, born after Cain
Cain
and Abel,[17] and another daughter, Azûrâ, born after Seth[18], and they had nine other sons;[19] Cain
Cain
married Awân and Seth
Seth
married Azûrâ, thus accounting for their descendants. The Life of Adam and Eve
Adam and Eve
and its Greek version the Apocalypse of Moses
Apocalypse of Moses
recount how Adam
Adam
repented his sin in exile and was rewarded by being transported to the heavenly paradise, foreshadowing the destiny of all the righteous at the end of time.[2] The Archangel Michael
Archangel Michael
attended Adam's death, together with Eve
Eve
and his son Seth, still living at that time, and he was buried together with his murdered son Abel.[20] Because they repented God gave Adam and Eve
Adam and Eve
garments of light, and similar garments will clothe the Messiah
Messiah
when he comes.[21] In the book Kav ha-Yashar
Kav ha-Yashar
the author warns not to talk negatively about Adam, he writes that those who talk positively about Adam
Adam
will be blessed with a long life.[22] A similar warning can be found in The Zohar.[23] The Sefer Raziel HaMalakh
Sefer Raziel HaMalakh
(רזיאל המלאך) (Raziel the Angel) is a collection of esoteric writings, probably compiled and edited by the same hand, but originally not the work of one author, which according to tradition was revealed to Adam
Adam
by the angel Raziel. The book cannot be shown to predate the 13th century, but may in parts date back to Late Antiquity, and like other obscure ancient texts such as the Bahir
Bahir
and Sefer Yetzirah, it has been extant in a number of versions. Zunz ("G. V." 2d ed., p. 176) distinguishes three main parts: (1) the Book Ha-Malbush; (2) the Great Raziel; (3) the Book of Secrets, or the Book of Noah. These three parts are still distinguishable — 2b-7a, 7b-33b, 34a and b. After these follow two shorter parts entitled "Creation" and "Shi'ur Ḳomah," and after 41a come formulas for amulets and incantations.[24] In Christianity[edit] For the Christian doctrines, see fall of man and original sin. Original sin[edit] Christianity, but neither Judaism
Judaism
nor Islam, sees human nature as irrevocably stained by the sin of Adam.[25] This was introduced by the Apostle Paul, drawing on currents in Hellenistic Jewish thought which held that Adam's sin had introduced death and sin.[26] Sin, for Paul, was a power to which all humans are subject, but Christ's coming held out the means by which the righteous would be restored to the Paradise from which Adam's sin had banished mankind.[26][2] He did not conceive of this original sin of Adam
Adam
as being biologically transmitted or that later generations were to be punished for the deeds of a remote ancestor.[26] It was Saint Augustine
Saint Augustine
who took this step, locating sin itself in male semen: when Adam and Eve
Adam and Eve
ate of the fruit they were ashamed and covered their genitals, identifying the place from which the first sin was passed on to all succeeding generations.[27] Only Jesus
Jesus
Christ, who was not conceived by human semen, was free of the stain passed down from Adam.[28] (Augustine's idea was based on the ancient world's ideas on biology, according to which male sperm contained the entire unborn baby, the mother's womb being no more than a nurturing chamber in which it grew.)[29] Adam
Adam
and Golgotha[edit] According to the Apocalypse of Moses
Apocalypse of Moses
the altar of the Temple of Solomon
Solomon
was the centre of the world and the gateway to God's Garden of Eden, and it was here that Adam
Adam
was both created and buried.[30] The early Christian community adapted this to their own legend of Golgotha, replacing the altar with the place of Jesus's crucifixion.[31] According to this Christian legend, current in the time of Origen
Origen
(early 3rd century CE), the holy blood of Christ trickled down and restored to life the father of the human race, who then led the saints who appeared to many in Jerusalem on that day as described in Scripture.[32] In Islam[edit] Main article: Adam

Allah created Adam
Adam
(Arabic: آدم) from a handful of earth taken from the entire world, which explains why the peoples of the world are of different colours.[33] He was the first prophet of Islam
Islam
and the first Muslim, as the Quran
Quran
says that all the prophets preached the same faith of submission to God. When Allah informed the angels that he would create a viceregent (a khalifa) on Earth the angels objected, saying he would spread corruption and bloodshed, but Allah allowed Adam
Adam
to reveal the names of the beasts to the angels, saying, "I (Adam) know what you (Allah) reveal and what you conceal;" the scholar Al-Tabari
Al-Tabari
explained that Adam
Adam
was referring to the evil plans of Iblis (Satan).[34] Adam and Eve
Adam and Eve
both ate of the Tree of Immortality, and both shared guilt equally, for Eve
Eve
neither tempted Adam
Adam
or ate before him; nor is Eve
Eve
to blame for the pain of childbirth, for Allah never punishes one person for the sins of another.[35] The Shiah
Shiah
school of Islam
Islam
does not even consider that their action was a sin, for obedience and disobedience are possible only on Earth and not in heaven, which is the location of Paradise.[35] Adam
Adam
fell on a mountain in India, the tallest in the world and so the closest to Heaven, and from there God sent him to Mecca, where he repented and was forgiven.[36] At Mecca he built the first Sanctuary (the Kaabah
Kaabah
- it was later rebuilt by Ibrahim) and was taught the ritual of the Hajj, and wove the first cloak for himself and the first veil and shift for Eve, and after this returned to India where he died at the age of 930, having seen the sons of the sons of his children, 1400 in all.[37] According to the Ahmadiyya
Ahmadiyya
sect Adam
Adam
was not the first human being on earth, but when the human race came into existence, and spread all over the world and developed the ability to receive revelation, God sent Adam
Adam
to each and every branch and civilization. According to a revelation received by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the founder of the community, the Adam
Adam
mentioned in the Qur'an was born 4,598 years before Muhammad.[38] See also[edit]
