Hey guys…today my religion teacher made a statement that was rather disturbing. He said that in the book of Genesis, when it says God created man in his own image, it actually means God created a PERSON in his own image. He says the word ‘man’ actually comes from the Hebrew word for ‘person’. So, my religion teacher concluded that we’re not certain if Adam was a man. This is rather bizarre. If Adam was not a man, what was he? He couldn’t have been a woman, otherwise, how would he and Eve have made Cain and Abel? Not only that, but there are MANY other accounts in the bible where ppl were called “man” and we know FOR SURE that they are males.
I don’t know…i was going to discuss this with my teacher but we were running out of class time….can any of you please explain this ‘hypothesis’ to me…its not credible
Thanks for your time guys, GB++
