Genesis 2.7, 15-25 NLT

Then the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nostrils, and the man became a living person.

21 So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep. While the man slept, the Lord God took out one of the man’s ribs and closed up the opening. 22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib, and he brought her to the man.

25 Now the man and his wife were both naked, but they felt no shame.

 

  • It is not good for the man to be alone.

         Genesis 2.18 Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.”

 

  • 1 + 1 = 1

          Genesis 2.22-24

             22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib, and he brought her to the man.

             23 “At last!” the man exclaimed.

“This one is bone from my bone, and flesh from my flesh! She will be called ‘woman,’ because she was taken from ‘man.’”

             24 This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.

 

  • God’s blessing brings fruitfulness.

          Genesis 2.28 Then God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply.

          Genesis 3.20 Then the man—Adam—named his wife Eve, because she would be the mother of all who live.
