In August 2014, a conference was organized in Turku with the topic “Where are you, Adam? A New Understanding of Adam in Jewish-Christian-Muslim Context.” The conference was a part of a research project that was funded by the Academy of Finland during the years 2013–2017. Almost 30 papers were presented in the conference and they, together with two other papers, are published in the volumes SRB 7 and 8. This volume, SRB 7—The Adam and Eve Story in the Hebrew Bible and in Ancient Jewish Writings Including the New Testament— consists of the papers that are related to the interpretation of the Adam and Eve story in biblical texts, including its ancient Near Eastern background, as well as in early Jewish reception tradition during the Second Temple period including the New Testament.
