Sorry if I caused confusion. I suppose I might have meant: what happened in Year 1?
If it's "Abraham, Isaac,...", then I'm guessing that Year 0/1 is the start of the Jewish people/religion.
Maybe I need to go and have a look myself (as I am genuinely curious as to what event is regarded as the start of the Jewish people/religion.
I suppose I'm asking myself whether Adam was the first Jew or whether it was someone else. My rusty OT knowledge leads me to believe that it wouldn't be Adam - because I'm telling myself that there was some sort of new covenant between humans and God, and that this comes some time after creation - but I would bet against me knowing the right answer in this case.
...if you press it, they will come.
