Every once in a while, an atheist will come up with good questions about what is written in the Bible. I should rephrase that. They can come up with good questions about the doctrine of men when it comes to the Bible. The question of how did Cain go east into the land of Nod and marry a wife if Adam was the first person here is a good one. Even most people of faith don’t have an answer because of faulty, but yet common knowledge doctrine. I will try to answer this question as best as I can in this post.
If five stones are dropped from the same height at the same time, no one can argue that the first, or second, or third, or any weren’t the first to hit the ground. Adam may have been the first person, but it doesn’t mean he was alone. I know I’m straying far away from common knowledge doctrine, but I will at the very least open you up to this possibility. The word “adam” in the Hebrew is their word for “man”, but it’s actual literal definition is “ruddy complected”. Why would God name Adam ruddy complected? Why point out his skin color? Not only did God name him Adam, but He did also with Eve. That’s right, God named them both Adam, as it says in Genesis 5:2.
When Cain went east into the land of Nod and married a woman, there was a new race created called the Kenites. Most don’t think of the Kenites as descendants of Cain, but it’s true. Back in the old days, people were named for either their race or where they were from such as the Canaanites and the Midianites. The Kenites however were a nomadic tribe, hence they were their own race. The Kenites were so similar to Jews that on the Jews’ trek through the wilderness, Kenites became assimilated with the Jews and were even appointed to be scribes generations later (1st Chr. 2:55). From that moment on, they were with the Israelites and to this very day believe they are Jews. How could they know elsewise? They are the ones Jesus described as those who say they are Jews but are not (Rev 2:9 & 3:9).
If you look at the generations listed in Genesis from Adam to Seth, and on and on to Noah, then on and on to King David, then look at the generations listed in Matthew from King David to Jesus, there is one thing in common. They were all Jews. It says nowhere that the descendants of Adam turned skin colors as they spread around the Earth. Also in Genesis 4:17, the line of Cain separates from the line of Adam. He might have been banished, but if he was the son of Adam it would have continued the same bloodline. Also considering Noah, a great assumption made by men has kept them blind to the other races. People think that Noah took two of every animal on the ark, but that’s not what it says. It says “two of every kind”. Not only is there scientific evidence of a great flood long ago, but the legend of the flood is a worldwide one. The Chinese have the story of a great flood and ship long ago. How did they have such a legend?
Many educated Christians believe that people turned different colors in the story of the Tower of Babel, because God confused their language. That’s where the word “babble” comes from. The reason God did this was because Nimrod tried to make everyone around the world the same. This would have been the only reason God separated the races and confounded the language. If everyone was Jewish, then everyone would already be the same, right? God didn’t like what Nimrod was doing because He chose the Jewish race to be His special race. The race that would bare His Son. It says that God caused the language to differ then, not creating different races. There were different races already, which is why Nimrod tried to make them all the same.
Many of what we think of as Jews are really Kenites. They had a natural gift when it comes to interpreting the law and convincing the masses of their interpretation. Being that they were descendants of Cain, they have an evil gene. Perhaps when Jesus said “woe to thee scribes, Pharisees, hypocrites!”, He was referring to the descendants of Cain. The Kenites are on full display in the media and in our courtrooms today. Not all from those professions with Jewish names are Kenites. Let me be clear. Who knows if it’s even half? There certainly are many though, and many of them have taken after their father.
The reason why Adam was the only one mentioned is because that is the Jewish Bible. To the Jews, Adam was the only pertinent one. To the Jews, Eve is the mother of all living. Through them, the prophets and Jesus came to show our creation the light. While the Jews are God’s chosen race, all races are of God’s creation outside the ones men have made. Being that our souls are much older than our bodies, no one’s soul is Jewish, Greek, African, Mongol, Arab, or Caucasian. Having said that, God did put those souls into the bodies that He has chosen for them for a reason. Men have created their own races, and there’s nothing wrong with that, but He chose the race they’d be in for the actions of their souls long ago.
