If we dissect the word literally, k’negdo means “as opposed to him.” This implies that the woman helps her man in part by challenging him (to be better). Every man in a good marriage knows how true that is. As my longtime friend, former presidential speech writer Bruce Herschensohn, once put it to me, “In the beginning God created man and critic.”
Abram (“father”) was the one who got the vision and because he believed enough to obey he became Abraham (“Father of nations”) and received the covenant by which we today come to Christ, but the knowledge of the One God stretches back through Noah to Adam. If you want to know who Adam is, read Genesis 5:2. No really, if you’re now thinking “Adam was the first man”, you should just take 5 seconds to read it.
