If Adam and Eve were the first people, wouldn’t everyone be related by blood and genetics?

God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. . .” Genesis 1:28

Yes, and scientists have shown how closely linked we are genetically. The differences between our DNA is very slight, with variations on skin, eye and hair color.

If there were two, three or four different original parents—Adam and Eve, John and Cindy, Mike and Tina, Bill and Carol—our DNA would be radically different.

Since we all came from the same gene pool, we also all came from the same “sin” pool, which means Christ could die as a representative from that DNA and die for everyone he’s related to.
