 "Man"

Man -- Re: Hebrew adam & Greek anthropos.

The story in Genesis 1 & 2 concludes with the account of the creation of adam, which the Septuagint translates with the Greek word anthropos. This is significant because the Hebrew word for man as male is ish and the Greek word for man as male is andros. The words used here (adam and anthropos) are gender inclusive and literally mean "person" or "human." Genesis 1 & 2 refer to the creation of the human species, not to man as male

The translation of the words adam and anthropos as man and the references made with the pronouns he, him, his etc. make it difficult for this generation to understand that the scripture is not speaking to males but the all human beings.
