In Genesis 2:4-24, the writer returns to the creation narrative and adds a few more details that are not found in Genesis 1. Those details are "generations" or "histories." Moses, as is frequently credited with writing Genesis, tells us that man's constitution was physically made up of "dust" ore elements common to the earth, as well as "the breath of life" from God, thereby making him a "living creature." As Dr. Paul points out, the combination makes it clear that humanity had a beginning at a point in time, and credits God as the supernatural person who brought it to be. It is something that no atheist has an alternative explanation.

Probably the most important part of Genesis 2, even though all that is discusses are important, is the recognition of man's loneliness, and the steps God took to dispel it. From Adam's literal, physical side, God took one of his ribs and formed his "wife." The two would not only reflect the image of God within their marriage relationship, any loneliness that man might suffer, as a human being, would be dispelled. The woman would become a fitting helper, not only as a companion in work, but as one who would help the man fulfill God's commands to be fruitful and multiply. It would be a beautiful relationship that would go right along with God's description of his creation being "very good."
