Did God Create More Than JUST Adam and Eve?

So I grew up in a non denominational church and that is still what I consider my faith to be...I don't know if this question falls under our beliefs but I like to ask the question anyway. I run a youtube show but do not get a lot of hits and this is why I bring it here.

PLEASE keep in mind that I am breaking everything down on a chapter by chapter basis, I did not take into account anything that was written after GEN ch.2 and these videos are not posted to be FACT, they are posted to bring up questions.

These are a few points I went over.



So what do you guys think? You can discuss it here or on the youtube comments either way is fine with me.

Hi TS,

On it's face your question is fairly ludicrous. God created everything that is! However, I understand that you mean to limit your question to the human race and so my answer to that would be that God Created the physical form of Adam, Eve, and Jesus, and all of the angels. Although I guess we wouldn't consider the angelic realm to be human.

That's it!

God bless you,
In Christ, Ted

When it talks about God creating Adam in Genesis 2, it is talking about what happened on Day 6. We know that because of what it says in Genesis 2:5

Gen 2:5 When no bush of the field was yet in the land and no small plant of the field had yet sprung up—for the LORD God had not caused it to rain on the land, and there was no man to work the ground,

So based on Genesis 2:5 alone your theory about other men being created could not be accurate. What happens in Genesis 2 is that the narrative jumps from describing what happened on the 7th day back to what happened on the 6th day. We first get an overview of the 7 days of creation and then God goes back to highlight some important events that happened when He created man on the 6th day (and possibly many days after that).

You know, when I first read Genesis, I too always wondered this. Did God create more than just Adam and Eve because it seemed to me like the number of people rose very rapidly. However, it did cross my mind that perhaps Adam and Eve had more children than what was just show to us and recorded. However, it was very confusing to me at first too. However I have always taken the "just Adam and Eve" stance for a while now. It would appear to me that it makes more sense, since there is mention of just Adam and Eve, otherwise God would have stated Adam and Eve plus Bob and Marry in Asia.

Thanks,

Brandon

OP, yes, it's possible, but has less spiritual impact than reading under the surface.

Gen 2 is not a continuance of Gen 1, it is a reiteration of the same process with details on mankind rather than the entirety of creation. The proper break between the two is between 2:3 and 2:4

FYI, it is possible for all modern races to have come out of genetic quirks along the way since the flood. A recent study shows that all our DNA is altered from an original "black" man's by way of mutation.

Pushing that aside, the literal story is the hook that can draw one out, but most don't actually bite, because most do not war with spiritual things.

Read symbolically, just the first day alone describes also the birth of a newborn baby and the subsequent opening of his eyes, the birth of a universe with it's matter and gas and the formation of stars, the start of being "born again", etc.

The history of mankind up until now is still the sixth day.
Likewise, the last 1000 years are still the sixth day.
Mankind is not a finished work until we all love God and each other.

The entire bible has symbolic and poetic grace, instructions, etc, from God, hidden from those who assign negative attributes to Him and who do not exercise brotherly love.

You mentioned the word "deep", you are spot on. Read deep and ask Him to teach you His symbolic language. Ask by loving others and doing the works of Christ, and not accusing God of wicked things.

Peace.

It is very possible that God created more people than just Adam and Eve, but this would have happened after the fall of Adam and Eve. There is no way this can be proved from Genesis 1 or 2.

However, what we notice is that after Cain killed Abel and
had to flee, there were other people who he joined himself to. These people do not seem to be direct descendants of Adam but I could be wrong there.

Gen 4:13 And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear.
Gen 4:14 Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.
Gen 4:15 And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.
Gen 4:16 And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.
Gen 4:17 And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.

So the land of Nod. Cain was the firstborn of Adam. Can found a wife in the land of Nod. Since it does not seem like the only person in the land of Nod was Cain's wife, then there probably were other people created after the fall. That I can only speculate as the bible is not clear on this. But it is possible.

Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come. But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. (Romans 5:12-15 KJV)

No God did not create more humans besides Adam and Eve, everyone born into this world came from them.
