Genealogies Contunied: Genesis 5.1- 2

These verses demonstrate for the reader a contrast between the divine creative act and human creative acts. In one sense, Adam is doing what God did: create. God created and humankind is procreating. Verses 1- 2 give four details about creation. First, God made humankind in his image. Second, God made humankind male and female. Third, God blessed them. Fourth, God called them man. God created humankind to live in a community. This was a message that Israel needed on their way to the Promised Land and is still a message that the Church needs to teach today. Individuals, in fact, find their greatest potential inside of God”s community, the Church.
