Did Jesus talk
to Adam and Eve?
Q. Did the One who became Jesus Christ actually talk to our first parents in the Garden of Eden?

A. Another way to phrase the question is: Was it God or the Word who talked to Adam and Eve, since it was the Word (Logos, Strong's Concordance Number #G3056) who became Jesus Christ, approximately four thousand years later?
There is an abundance of evidence that the One who became Jesus was the Lord of the Old Testament. Let's examine the following scriptures:
"Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel, and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts : 'I am the First and I am the Last . . . '" (Isaiah 44:6, NKJV throughout unless stated)
" . . . and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was CHRIST. " (1Corinthians 10:4)
So far the evidence is that " the Lord, the King of Israel, and his Redeemer", of the first Scripture was the same person as "that spiritual Rock that followed them . . . CHRIST. "
Additionally, we read in Revelation 1:11,
" . . . I Am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last . . . "
which is also stated in Isaiah 44:6. The first verse of Revelation 1 discloses that Jesus is the subject, the Revelator, and He says that He is the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last.
Let’s look at the first chapter of the Book of John:
"In the beginning was the Word, (Greek: Logos - a divine being and the second member of the Godhead) and the Word was with God, (Greek: Theos - The supreme divine being and the first member of the Godhead) and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God; all things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made." (John 1:1-3, RSV)
