Biblical Spotlight: Adam

Alright everyone, time for my last Biblical Spotlight until my next encounter with a Biblical Fiction book. This one focuses on Adam.
According to the Bible:
  • Adam was created by God in his likeness from the Earth
  • Eve, his wife, was created from Adam's rib to keep him company
  • He was to live in the Garden of Eden and care for all the plants and animals
  • The only rule was to not eat the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil
  • He and his wife were expelled from the Garden for doing what he was told not to
  • He lived to be 930 years old!
In the novel by Elissa Elliott she talks a lot about how Adam was deaf in one ear after an encounter with a bear. I'm not sure if this event is mentioned anywhere or if his deafness is mentioned and she just created a back story for it. Does anyone know?

I have to say that I have learned a lot from this series of spotlights - I was never really up on my Biblical events. Until tomorrow - when my review will be posted
