So I did one of those read the Bible in a year plans, out of academic curiosity.
And as I'm sure will come as a surprise to no one, it did not bring me closer to becoming a believer. Further from it, if possible.
Who else here has read the Bible? I think it's great to study as a piece of ancient literature, but certainly not something to live by. (I mean, yikes.)
Sounds like a scene from the movie Chinatown.
Also, if Adam and Eve were the first (and presumably only) people on earth and had 2 sons, where did Cain's wife come from??
Women often weren't mentioned because sexism.
Often times when women were mentioned...they were merely identified as so-and-so's wife or daughter instead of by actual name.
And yes, Gregg is right...Cain and Abel's wives would also have been their sisters.
