Saint John's Bible illuminates God's first couple as Africans

Genesis 3: "Adam and Eve" by Donald Jackson with contribution by Chris Tomlin
God's first couple: Adam and Eve are presented by Donald Jackson  as an African man and woman surrounded by patterned fabrics from various ancient cultures. Photographs of Ethiopian tribes-people influenced Jackson's design. He wanted to link the notion of the Bible's first man and woman with scientific evidence that humankind originated in Africa. The poisonous coral snake also appears between Adam and Eve. [Purchase]
