CHRISTIAN RELIGIOUS STUDIES

IN THE CREATION STORY THE JOB OF GIVING NAMES TO ALL LIVING CREATURES WAS PERFORMED BY

  • A. God
  • B. Adam and Eve
  • C. Eve
  • D. Man ✓
  • E. The angels of God

 

According to the Book of Genesis in the Bible, after God created Adam, He brought all the animals before him for him to name them. This act of naming the animals was a demonstration of Adam’s authority and dominion over the animal kingdom. It symbolized his role as a steward of God’s creation.

The passage in Genesis 2:19-20 states: “Now the Lord God had formed out of the ground all the wild animals and all the birds in the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. So, the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds in the sky and all the wild animals.”

But for Adam no suitable helper was found.

This act of naming the animals by Adam is significant in many religious traditions as it signifies humanity’s special place in creation and our responsibility to care for and steward the natural world.

Therefore, in the creation story, it was Adam who was given the task of giving names to all living creatures.
