Genesis 2:7-9; 2:15-25 Text
Genesis 2:7-9; 2:15-25
then the Lord God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. 8
And the Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the east; and there he put the man whom he had formed. 9
And out of the ground the Lord God made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it. 16
And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “You may freely eat of every tree of the garden;17
but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall die.”
Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.” 19
So out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name. 20
The man gave names to all cattle, and to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for the man there was not found a helper fit for him. 21
So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh; 22
and the rib which the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. 23
Then the man said,
“This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” 24
Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and cleaves to his wife, and they become one flesh. 25
And the man and his wife were both naked, and were not ashamed.

Anyone who has learnt about Jesus and Christianity from Muslim sources possesses a very distorted knowledge. Any Muslim who would like to find out about Jesus, the seal of the prophets, is welcome to contact us for a study specially customised for your needs. Muhammad Ibn Sereen once said: “This knowledge is a matter of deen [religion], so be careful who you take your deen [religion] from.” This is also true of Christianity, be careful from whom you learn about Jesus. Learn about Jesus from his followers. Salvation from the chains of legalism is for you, Jesus is the only Sharia. Contact us
