The issue of whether Adam and Eve were the first humans is being debated today, even among Evangelical Christians. Some have drifted into some form of evolutionary theory and therefore find it difficult to affirm a real, historical couple in a real Garden.
My message was the first in a faculty series on this critical issue. It seems to me that the Bible indeed treats Adam (and Eve) as historical (see Romans 5 especially).
