Adam & Eve

Jesus directly mentioning Adam and Eve is not as explicit in the Gospels as discussions on broader themes like marriage, creation, and obedience to God’s commandments. However, He does reference the beginning of creation and God’s intentions for marriage and human relationships, which indirectly relate to Adam and Eve’s narrative. Here are a couple of verses that, while not naming Adam and Eve directly, are relevant to discussions about them:

  1. Matthew 19:4-6 (ESV): “He answered, ‘Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.'”
  2. Mark 10:6-9 (ESV): “But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’ ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”

These verses reference the Genesis creation narrative found in Genesis 1:27 and Genesis 2:24, indirectly relating to Adam and Eve’s story.

Three Takeaways:

  1. Foundational Role of Marriage: Jesus’ reference to the “beginning of creation” when discussing marriage underscores the foundational and ordained nature of the marital relationship as intended by God. This highlights the sanctity and significance of marriage as a divine institution, established from the time of Adam and Eve.
  2. Unity and Indissolubility of Marriage: The emphasis on “one flesh” in Jesus’ teaching reinforces the unity and indissoluble bond of marriage. This principle reflects back on the original union between Adam and Eve, setting a precedent for the commitment and fidelity expected in marriage.
  3. Divine Intention from Creation: Jesus’ teachings affirm that the patterns for human relationships and moral conduct were not arbitrary developments but part of God’s design from the very beginning. This underscores a continuity in divine intention from the creation of Adam and Eve through to the teachings of Jesus, emphasizing the enduring relevance of these principles.
