Who is Adam and Eve? God Created Adam Out of the Dust

Genesis 2:7. Adam was the first human and he was created before Eve. The name Adam comes from the Hebrew word, “adamah” meaning ground. Genesis 2:7 says, “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground …”. Adam’s body was formed from the dust of the ground, and thus, God named him Adam.

Adam’s body was formed from the dust, but his soul and spirit came from the breathe of God. Genesis 2:7 continues with “... and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul”. With the God’s breath of life, man became a living soul. God’s breathe enabled Adam’s body, soul, and spirit to function as one. Thus, the first man was formed and created by God.
