Is the word “literal” in there? Did I miss it?

What? Is naming the people not literal enough for you?

(For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore & do not submit again to a yoke of slavery)
When Paul states “Adam was formed first and then Eve”, it leaves very little room for doubt that there was a literal Adam and Eve. It's similar to listing them in a genealogy as Matthew or Luke does. Surely you wouldn't say that a listing of your great-great-grandfather in some body’s genealogy book is not to be taken literally.
Now whether or not you accept the scriptures as fact is another issue.
