Jewish History: Biblical History: The Earth from which Adam was Made:
Where did G-d get the earth from which He made Adam?
The Talmud has two views about the source of the earth from which
Adam was made: (1) It was taken from many places (Sanhedrin 38a-b),
probably so no place could claim priority. (2) It was taken from
the place where the altar would later stand (i.e., Jerusalem;
Palestinian Talmud, Nazir 56b).
