I recently received the latest issue of Biblical Archeology Review. The cover story is in regards to Adam & Eve, and it’s very interesting.
The article starts on page 33, and its title is “Was Eve Made from Adam’s Rib-or His Baculum?”
Without delving into the entire article, I was curious to know if the Church has any thoughts or interpretation, or is even aware of this latest “theory” based on the Hebrew translations tsal’otav (his ribs) & tsela (rib).
The author made a statement in the article saying, "Hebrew tsela’ considered by itself, does not suggest the notion of “rib.”
Is this significant? Any thoughts or information would be greatly appreciated.
