Creation of Adam and Eve

One cannot depend on only one verse to establish a certain doctrine. For example, one can conclude from the verse in Genesis 1:27-28 that God creates Adam and Eve at the same moment, because the verse states, "He created him; male and female He created them." Hence, this verse is classified as a generic verse that simply answers the question about when Adam and Eve were created? However, one must recognize all of the other verses concerning the creation of Adam and Eve, as more details will be discovered by reading the verses in Genesis 2:21-22. Therefore, these verses are classified as detailed verses that answer how Adam and Eve were created.

& "God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply" (Genesis 1:27-28).
& "And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man" (Genesis 2:21-22).
