Wesley's Notes for Genesis 5:2


5:2 Where we have a brief rehearsal of what was before at large related concerning the creation of man. This is what we have need frequently to hear of, and carefully to acquaint ourselves with. Observe here. 1. That God created man. Man is not his own maker, therefore he must not be his own master; but the author of his being must be the director of his motions, and the center of them. 2. That there was a day in which God created man, he was not from eternity, but of yesterday; he was not the first - born, but the junior of the creation. 3. That God made him in his own likeness, righteous and holy, and therefore undoubtedly happy; man's nature resembled the divine nature more than that of any of the creatures of this lower world. 4. That God created them male and female, #Ge 5:2|, for their mutual comfort, as well as for the preservation and increase of their kind. Adam and Eve were both made immediately by the hand of God, both made in God's likeness; and therefore between the sexes there is not that great difference and inequality which some imagine. 5. That God blessed them. It is usual for parents to bless their children, so God the common Father blessed his; but earthly parents can only beg a blessing, it is God's prerogative to command it. It refers chiefly to the blessing of increase, not excluding other blessings. He called their name Adam - He gave this name both to the man and the woman. Being at first one by nature, and afterwards one by marriage; it was fit they should both have the same name, in token of their union.


Discussion for Genesis 5

    Jimmy; the things that are too much for us to bear just now, God will reveal to us in due time; and certainly when we see Him face to face! The are plenty of Scriptures that declare plainly that GOD IS ONE! But ONE doesn't just refer to quantity; although we know that there is no other God but our God. The Father sent the Son in the flesh to save the world from sin and undo the works of the devil.
  • Bruce
    Jim: Genesis 1:26:Did God say let us,or let me make man? 1John 5:7:Does it say there are not 3 in Heaven. Genesis,Elohim is God's Name. It's plural. Husband and Wife (man and woman) 2=1. Thousands in The Body, The Church:1000's=1. your theory on the theory of The Trinity is, well just that. Salvation is Free. Foolishness is costly. John 6:44. Ask, you will be Changed: 2Corinthians 5:17
  • Jimmy
    Donna Cromb their is only one God. Read 1 John 5:2, 1 John 5:20-22 confirms that the theory of trinity is wrong. God is one.
