171 The Mankind in the Beginning Were Living Beings With a Spirit

1. In the beginning, God created mankind, that is, God created mankind’s ancestor, Adam. He was tangible and formed, brimming with life, brimming with vitality, and furthermore, having God’s glory’s company. That was the glorious day when God created man. Following that, Eve was produced from the body of Adam, also the ancestor of man, and so the people of God’s creation were filled with God’s breath and brimming with God’s glory.

2. Adam was originally produced by God’s hand and was the representation of God’s image, the representation of God’s image. Thus the original meaning of “Adam” was to be God’s creation imbued with God’s vitality, imbued with God’s glory, tangible and in good form, having spirit and breath. He was the only creation endowed with a spirit that could represent God, have God’s image and receive God’s breath.

3. In the beginning Eve was the second person endowed with breath that God had determined to create, so the original meaning of “Eve” was to be a creation to continue God’s glory, filled with God’s vitality and furthermore be endowed with God’s glory. Eve came out of Adam, so she was also of God’s image, was also of God’s image, for she was the second person created in God’s image. The original meaning of “Eve” was to be a living being, given a spirit, existing in flesh and bone, being God’s second testimony as well as God’s second image in mankind. They were mankind’s ancestors, his pure and precious treasure, and originally living beings with a spirit, originally living beings with a spirit.
