Adam & Eve

Question: How many people did God create? Genesis 1:27says : " So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created. V. 28 God blessed them and said to them..." The man should refer to Adam. But who were the male and female and where did they go after God created them?

Answer: God created Adam and Eve as the male and female. He didn't create anyone else just them. It can be a little confusing because Genesis 1:1-2:3 are an account of what happened on the 6 days of the creation week. On day six he created man (mankind) as male and female. Genesis 2:4-25 is a more detailed account of what happened on the sixth day of creation when God created the male, Adam, and the female, Eve.
