When God created Adam in his (God's) image in Gen 1:27 Was Adam both male and female in the image of God and later God made a helper fit for Adam by making the female/woman from Adam? Did God do this with the animals or did he initially make a male and female of each animal? Could God have had a Son by a woman (the helper taken from the man created in the image of God) if he had not done as described in Gen. 1:27 and 2:7,20-22. And the LORD God formed man [of] the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. (Adam in the image of God male and female) And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. Adam was a natural man 1 Cor 15:45,46 natural from ψυχικός psychikos breath belonged of. Had to have the spirit of the breath of life from God to be living and to sustain life. And Adam was the figure of him to come Jesus of Nazareth the Son of God and the woman taken from the man created in the image of God male and female. And to this man, Adam, God said, YLT and of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, thou dost not eat of it, for in the day of thine eating of it -- dying thou dost die.' Did the Son of God have to die that death in order to redeem Adam from death? Is this relative to, the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world, that is before he created the man in his image? Did the Son of God die for sin or not? I did not want to trample on the OP of The Biblicist thread, What happened to the resurrected FLESHLY Body of Christ? Just wanted to show how the living soul, the Son of God was able to die for our sins. DHK The Septuagint translated shĕ'owl into Hades, "the place of the departed dead," people, souls. Jesus was resurrected from Hades neither did his flesh see corruption. Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been [dead] four days. Why is that verse in the word and is it relative to three days and three nights and corruption? Would you show me from the word of God where the bosom of the Abraham has anything to do with Paradise and also from the word of God where the Paradise of God, where the tree of life is found, has anything to do with Hades. Scripture please.
