What is the root of our existence? Was there an Adam and Eve? Is their world a lost world, just beginning to be recovered?
How we answer these questions has vast implications for our theology and practice of life. It defines who we are, what God has done, and who God is. The gospel is connected to Genesis: there is the first Adam and the second Adam. Christ, the Eternal Son was intimately involved in the creative origin of humanity: “for by him all things were created… all things were created through him and for him.” (Colossians 1:16) To learn more about The Quest for the Historical Adam, how it will help you understand the history of Christian understanding of Genesis, the contemporary conversation and issues at stake, check out The Quest for Adam website.
