Have you ever wondered why man was created out of the dust, but the woman was created from the rib of man?
“And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; and the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man” (Genesis 2:21-22).
Over the years, man has created some interesting stories related to the creation of man. There are even more interesting stories associated with the creation of woman from the rib of man. Believe it or not, the answer has more to do with sin and salvation than anything else.
“And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation” (Acts 17:26).
According to this passage, God created from one blood all the nations of men living on the face of the earth. This is why Eve was created in the fashion that she was created, so that there would be only one blood for all mankind. Had Eve been created from the dust as man was, there would have been two bloods. And with two bloods, the need for two saviors. While there is much speculation on how the other people came to be on the earth, it appears that we all came from one man: one man, one blood, and one race; the human race and with that, the need for one savior. How awesome is God?
