The Lord created a human in His own image. He never calls this creature “Adam” as if it were a proper name. The word adam is Hebrew for human, mankind. God made adam in His image.

Are Soul Twins Biblical?

I started talking about the concept of soulmates and twin souls after a mystical experience in 1978.  Many people questioned the biblical reference to such a concept.  My Grandparents felt that it was mentioned in Genesis.  I did start my own study of scriptures until 1998 with the aid of computer programs.  I studied the Hebrew, Latin, Greek, Aramaic as well as Coptic translations through various computer aided programs.  I have heard it said that it is a matter of interpretation.   I have a vivid recall of speaking directly with an angelical vision from my childhood in 1968.   I rely on my memories of that conversation to make my own interpretation.  I have found articles and authors on the Internet that share my own vision of the translation from Genesis. 

Said Rabbi Jeremiah ben Elazar: “When the Holy One, blessed be the One, created the first adam, [God] created him [an] “androgynos.” As there it is written: ‘When God created the adam, He made him in the likeness of God; male and female [God] created them.’

Said Rabbi Shmuel Bar Nachman: “At the time that the Holy One, blessed be the One, created the fi rst adam, He created him double-faced and [then] split him, and made for him two backs – a back here and a back there.” h ey asked him: “But isn’t it written: ‘and He took one of his ribs [tzelah]’?” He said to them: “[h is actually means] one of his sides…as we understand it, ‘and one of the sides [tzelah] of the tabernacle.’” Source: Compiled by Rabbi Elliot Kukla

In the Beginning...

It is the same doctrine when Kabalists assert that in the beginning of the world souls were created by God in pairs consisting of a male and female.  The twin-soul here is a product of the primary creation; the single soul belongs to the second creation. The doctrine is apparent in the first chapter of Genesis, when Adam was created in the likeness of the Elohim, and was both male and female.  Whereas in the second creation (ch ii) man, or Adam, is not a twin soul; he is fashioned singly, and the woman is taken from the body of the man to form a consort for him.  ~ Ancient Egypt – The Light of the World

Adam HaRishon, the first Adam was composed of male and female parts. In Adam, also, were all of the seeds for the physical part of the human race. According to the sod, mystical, tradition of the Sages, prior to the fall, Adam was a far greater person than he was afterwards. Prior to the fall, Adam was more of a spiritual being than a physical one. Also included within him, were all of the souls of mankind. This does not only mean that all souls would come forth from him, but rather that each and every cell of his body was an individual, conscious soul. Adam was thus the collective soul of all mankind. It is of no wonder then that the Hebrew word for mankind and the name of the father of mankind is one and the same: Adam. Source
