Who was Adam in the Bible?

Here's the answer:

Adam was the first man ever created.

The Bible records Adam as being the first man ever created. God created Adam out of the dust of the ground and breathed life into his lungs (Genesis 2:7). Adam was very important because he was the first man God created and he had the privilege of walking alongside God in the garden of Eden. God also gave Adam the important job of naming all the animals (Genesis 2:18-20).

Adam and Eve were different from the rest of God’s creation because they were created in God’s image (Genesis 1:27). Nothing else in all creation was made in God’s image. This makes human beings special. God also gave Adam and Eve free will. With their free will, they chose to disobey God.

Due to sin, we are now separated from God and only by believing in Jesus can anyone be saved. Adam’s sin caused all mankind to be born into sin. Jesus is called the “Second Adam” because he restored what was lost. Adam was the first man in the Bible and he partook in the first sin. Even though Adam disobeyed God, God still loved him. We all now have the opportunity for a fresh start through Jesus.
