How many wives did Adam have?

We read in Genesis 1:27

So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

So God created man and woman in his image.

In Genesis 2:22

Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.

So is this another woman that God created from Adam's rib. Jewish folklore would have us think so. They believed that the first woman became Adam's first wife but left after she was unable to submit to him being created equal.

Her name was Lilith and after she left she became a nasty piece of work and the killer of babies etc. She is mentioned in the Bible in Isiah 34:14 Darby Bible Translation.

And there shall the beasts of the desert meet with the jackals, and the wild goat shall cry to his fellow; the lilith also shall settle there, and find for herself a place of rest.

Much artwork depicts Lilith as the head and body of the serpent in the garden. Some of the artwork is quite pornographic. http://jewishchristianlit.com/Topics/Lilith/pics.html

You can read all about her here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lilith#English_versions

Seems like quite a stretch. The second section of Genesis is obviously a more detailed look at the first. I don't see any reason to believe the first woman is different from the one created from Adam's rib more than I see any reason to believe the first man is different from Adam.

It must have been a fairly popular belief by the amount of art work about. Many churches have the same art work on their ceilings too.

I want to know the answer of this question too.

I don't think that human traditions or folklore like art scripts should be the basis of true christian believer. Only the word of God, as stated in the holy bible, must be the basis.
God bless you all.
