The bible dictates how we should understand things – including human summaries of the gospel. The Lampstand wishes to insist Adam was the first man in their July 2017 insert. We have already dealt with the scriptural differences between Gen 1 and 2 (which deals therefore with Gen 1:27). The second proof text they advance is the view of Adam that Eve was the mother of all living Gen 3:23, as if Adam was someone informed on the state of the world outside the cloistered garden.
Interestingly as old earth creationists, they strictly believe ‘Adam is the first man in the current creation’ (which is not in the bible of course). This is just bad biblical exposition. In the context of 1 Cor 15:45 Adam is the first man and Jesus the last Adam, Adam the first man and Jesus the second (1Cor 15:47). It’s poor exposition to demand Adam was literally first and Christ spiritually second & last. Nothing more nothing less.
