Section Adam to Altar (the other sections → key00.htm)
- The first passage where the word adam appears in the Hebrew text of the Old Testament is Genesis 1:26, “Let us make man [Hebrew adam] in our image, after our likeness”.
- Some have suggested that the noun adam (“man”) might have been related to the verb adam which had to do with the red colour and thus perhaps with “red earth”, but that is speculation. We do not know with certainty what the linguistic root of the word adam really was.
- First Adam and last Adam – “The first man Adam became a living being; the last Adam became a life-giving Spirit.” (1 Corinthians 15:45.) → eba057.htm
- Look also under the heading “Eve”.
- The “added law” of Galatians 3:19 – really what was it? → eca086.htm – eca027.htm
- Jesus said to his disciples, “but seek you first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you” (Matthew 6:33 and Luke 12:31). What did he mean? → eoa106.htm
Advent – The actual meaning and symbolism of the Advent period before Christmas. → ewa057.htm
- Adventism is to a large part based on the teachings of the Freemason and Baptist preacher William Miller (1782–1849).
- Regarding the Millerite (and Adventist) dogma about “seven church eras”, see the article eaa037.htm.
- Many Adventists keep a Sabbath, often from sunset on Friday to sunset on Saturday. Some of them keep even the annual high days which the Old Covenant had. Should believers keep some days, and if so, which? → eaa047.htm – exa098.htm – exa109.htm
- Regarding the matter of the Decalogue, see the article eca058.htm.
- The “Sacred names” movement comes from a certain split of seventh day adventism, which in its turn was a split of the Millerist movement. – Look under the heading “Sacred names”.
Age, aged, ages

- Hebrew Achashverowsh, sometimes in the shorter form Achashrosh, apparently of Persian origin, perhaps the same as Artaxerxes which was the name of several Persian kings. (Some translate Achashverowsh as “Xerxes”.)
- King Ahasuerus is mentioned in the book of Esther (and shortly in Daniel 9:1) – “this was the Ahasuerus who reigned over one hundred and twenty-seven provinces, from India to Ethiopia”, Esther 1:1, NKJV.
- A map of the Persian empire, as it was around 450 BCE. → ewa086.htm
