Were Adam and Eve real people? Should Genesis be interpreted literally? Find out on today’s Creation Moments Minute.
Many people today think it’s unusual for someone to interpret the Genesis account of creation literally. For example, many in the church seem unsure of whether Adam was a real person. How are we to understand Genesis?
Until the nineteenth century, virtually all Christians understood Genesis chapter 1 as a history of what actually happened during creation week. The few exceptions were influenced by Greek and Roman philosophy that was very much like modern evolution.
We could mention many leaders of the church who understood Genesis creation as an historical account of actual events. Most importantly, Jesus Christ treated the Genesis account of creation as actual history … and Adam and Eve as real people.
We need to understand Genesis in its natural sense, of course, just as Jesus understood it.
