Hi and can even get Catholic Crusader to bite ?
Here is what I believe is the answer !!
In Gen 2:23 that this is a one time event of a RIB being taken from a man to make another human , never will happen again !!
In Gen 3:1 and 8 we know that Christ walked with them in the garden and not to eat or touch the fruit !!
We see in Gen 3:21 Christ made Coats of skins to clothe them !!
This than means that Adam had FAITH , OTHERWISE Christ would have NEVER killed an animal and CLOTHED THEM !!
So , Adam to Moses , it was the FIRST BLOOD ATONEMENT for SIN !!
So the GOSPEL can be called the GOSPEL OF SACRIFICE , and looks like more than one GOSPEL to me !!
In Gal 2:7 there are 2 gospel , Pauls' one of the UN-CIRCUMCISION for Gentiles !!
And one CIRCUMCISION for Peter and the CIRCUMCISION for Jews !!
That the EVERLASTING GOSPEL in Rev 14:6-7 !!
