Enns’ position is that evolution is a given, and that Adam in Genesis was designed by the biblical writers to typify Israel
Enns' position is untennable. Adam was a very specific person and that person pre-dates Jacob (a.k.a. Israel) and is in Jesus' genealogy as the beginning of his line. Abraham couldn't have come from Israel because Israel was not even born yet but Abraham did come from Adam. Dig?

I was not agreeing or disagreeing - just said it was an interesting discussion. Take what ever you want from it.
