Did God create Adam and Eve to be His "next of kin"--His first son and daughter and, thus, His closest relatives? If so, what happened to that intended relationship when they sinned and were separated from God?
Author Edwin Majone believes God was left with no next of kin--since the entire human race inherited their sinfulness. Who then is God's next of kin? It cannot be Jesus, the author states, because He is God: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God" (John 1:1, NKJV).
God's Next of Kin investigates this mystery and the importance it has to seven redemptive Hebrew names of God. As you solve the mystery with God's Next of Kin, it will help you to grow spiritually and will broaden your biblical worldview.
