Recall that the cross had a heading naming Jesus "King of the Jews." The letters are an abbreviation for the Latin"Iesus Nazarae Rex Iudeae", or, in English, "Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews." (Keep in mind that all Roman punishments prior to Diocletian's tetrarchy, and just after Constantine's reunification were and would have been in the adopted state language of Latin, rather than the common languages of the realm, like Greek and Aramaic.)

The days of Adam after he fathered Seth were 800 years; and he had other sons and daughters. Thus all the days that Adam lived were 930 years, and he died. (Genesis 5:4-5)Opinion (Christian Perspective)Although it is not clearly state in the bible that the children of Adam and Eve married each other and had children there is scripture that shows that Adam and Eve were the first man and woman created. Although in Genesis 1:27 it says that God created man on the 6th day, later in Genesis 2:7 God created Adam and in Genesis 2:18 it goes on to say "Then the Lord said, 'It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him." Through these scriptures it appears clear to me that Adam was alone making him the first being on earth and that Eve who was subsequently created by God for Adam, was the second being on earth.

Explanatory: Designated sons of the same mother are brothers. The Lord's brother by kin, James, was murdered here.
Continuity of the Acts, and other Holy Bible MSS has the Lord's merited spiritual brother, James the Just, the son of Zebedee - the other Apostle of the Twelve named James - existing .

Praying through has been giving many meanings. Some are more complicated than others. Here is an answer applicable to born again Christians. Many of the old time people, (Pentecostals or those with a charismatic background), used to pray through. It involved earnest prayer to God and seeking Him. And as the title suggest it means praying through or past some spiritual barrier. This barrier in most cases is a state of backsliddeness but can also be some other condition. Maybe you feel that your prayers are not heard, you have a problem you should not struggle with or you do not feel Gods peace or the presence of the Holy Spirit. In such conditions the person goes into prayer and pray through a problem until he/she feels peace, Gods closeness, the presence of the Spirit or get the answer or peace to a specific problem prayed for. This type of prayer usually is but does not have to be accompanied by fasting.

The eightfold path is a central concept in Buddhism. The eightfold path consists of right understanding, right thought, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, and right meditation. Buddhism teaches that desire causes all suffering in the world, and that the eightfold path is the way to cease suffering.
Other opinions from contributors:
No they weren't, Eve gave birth -each time- to twins: a male and a female. So, she gave birth first to Cain (Qaabeel) and his sister 'Iqleemaa' then Abel (Haabeel) and his sister 'Labodaa'.
Opinion: If the Bible is read literally (which it ought to be because if God didn't literally create us, love us and die for us, then the Bible doesn't help us at all), Adam and Eve are the only two humans, so yes their children did have to commit incest to continue growing the population. Adam lived over 900 years and had many, many children one can assume (be fruitful and multiply and all that). Even his children could have had children! This means that by the time Cain leaves he may have had a number of relatives, and the fact that a woman left with him seems very plausible. Long lifespans create the possibility for population explosions unlike anything we can imagine.
The fact that God used incest is not necessarily a contradiction to the law he later gives not to do it. If Adam and Eve were created to live forever (death entered the world for them after sin) then they would be thought to have perfect genetic compositions. If that is the case incest wouldn't be of any harm. Only later, after sin and disease and bad recessive genes come about would incest be capable of hurting the offspring. Exactly how long would it take before people could be harmed by incest? I would guess right around the time God forbade it to his people. A similar thing was done when God told the Israelites not to eat pork, as pork was hard to cook properly and made many people sick. Later, Jesus says that he fulfills that portion of the law and we can eat pork now that it was being cooked in a way that is not harmful. God watches out for us with his Word, its one way he shows he loves us.
It is not really true. The biblical story of Adam and Eve is considered by some to be mythical, and was not intended to be analysed too carefully. Our true early ancestors arose in Africa hundreds of thousand of years ago.
Opinion: If you hold the Bible to be true, then Adam was the first man (see 1 Corinthians 15:45) and since he is listed in the geneology of Jesus (see Luke 3:38), we can assume he is not mythical. That being the case, then yes, Adam and Eve's grandchildren would be the product of their sons and daughters marrying, which today would be considered incestuous, but back then it was not since the laws were different at that time, because early on there were no genetic defects to worry about. How else could mankind fulfill the command to be fruitful and multiply? (Gen. 1:28)
Notice that it states in the Bible that "...Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden. And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch." (Gen. 4:16-17)
Now, how can there be a city if there are no people to live in it other than one man, his wife and their son? One household a city does not make. How could it be possible that there were no others in the world when Adam, Eve and their two sons, Cain and Abel, were driven from the Garden of Eden -- yet Cain finds his wife, who he "knew" before Eve gave birth to another child (Gen. 4:25)?
Well, the answer may lie in this: "And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose." (Gen. 6:1-2)
It seems the Garden of Eden was not the only place where people lived. Yet, strangely, the Bible never reveals exactly where the wives of Cain, Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared, etc, etc, etc, actually came from. If the wives of Cain and Seth were the daughters of Adam and Eve, why not say so, instead of saying "the sons of God took the daughters of men as their wives"? So far, the only clue is that Cain ended up in the land of Nod, where he "knew his wife". But there is at least one more clue, and it occurs before Adam and Eve "know" each other again.
"And Cain said unto the Lord, 'My punishment is greater than I can bear. Behold, Thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from Thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me'. And the Lord said unto him, 'Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold.' And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him." (Gen. 4:13-15)
The final clue is the fact that there is always such genetic mutation within three generations of the type of incest which must have been occurring between Adam's sons and his daughters. Therefore, had all humans alive today actually descended directly from Adam and Eve, we would all have severe mental and physical disabilities, all 6.8 Billion of us on this planet we call Earth (Office of Population Research, Princeton University) -- unless the Scientifically proven fact that such genetic mutations are the direct result of father-daughter/mother-son incest is something which came about only after the time of Adam and Eve. If that is the case, one has to wonder why the resulting mutation is not mentioned in the Bible as some form of punishment, as the suffering through the sweat of the brow is. (Gen. 3:17-19)
Given all the Scientific facts, and the clues provided in the Bible, as well as using logical reasoning, it can not be true that Adam and Eve's grandchildren were really the product of incest.
This issue is only one of many contradictions in the Bible. There are only two possible explanations. Either Adam and Eve and their children had incestuous relationships in order to procreate, or, the creation story whereby a god created the first two humans on Earth is not true. Of course, that casts doubt on the basic Christian belief that a god created the first "marriage" and that it was between a man and a woman.
The contradictions in the Bible, especially this issue regarding Adam and Eve and the human race, provide compelling evidence that it was compiled as a collection of creation myths, moral lessons and monotheistic religious teachings written and rewritten by many authors over a very long period of time.

According to tradition, King David gave us the Book of Psalms. Seventy-three of the 150 bear his name, and tradition states that the unattributed ones are also from him (Talmud, Berakhot 9b).
Concerning those Psalms that have the names of other authors, tradition teaches that we may thank David for them too (Talmud, Bava Bathra 14b). This is because it was he who recorded them in their permanent form and in a single book. If not for King David, those Psalms would have gone lost.
Earth was created by the big bang that made the tiny grains of matter stick to each other by static electricity. Then those grains grew to half a mile, then it had enough gravity to attract it's own sand. All of these huge asteroids collided with each other until earth is formed. There is tiny droplets of water in the asteroids, which will explain the world's oceans. There are also amino acids in the asteroids, the building block of life. Also there is cyanobacteria that produces oxygen as a byproduct of sun. So this is how the earth is created. BTW the moon is created by the same process but when a mars size planet collided into earth, causing the process with the moon. PS there are heaver metals in the center of the earth because earth even once melted itself with all the heat and asteroids colliding with it. So the denser materials sunk while the lighter once rose. This also explains why there is almost no iron or nickel on the moon, because that huge planet hit earth at an angle, it is no longer straight.
I believe in God, but the big bang theory works too, I guess.
God created it.
