It appears to me anyway a tie in to Genesis 2:7 and John 20:22. I am using the NIV Bible. In Genesis 2:7 it states, 7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. We know that the breath that God breathed into Adam was an unblemished breath of life. Adam became a living soul after God breathed into his nostrils.
We see a similar situation happen in John Chapter 20:20-23 " And when he had so said, he showed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the LORD. Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost: Whosoever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whosoever sins ye retain, they are retained.
Since many of the church leaders have negotiated with scientists in the Book of Genesis this lends something they can't explain. Jesus breathed the new life onto the disciples just like he breathed life into the nostrils of Adam.
We can see the importance of this new spirit in Romans 8:11. Paul states But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. Jesus clearly breathed the new spirit on his disciples giving them eternal life.
The bible clearly says in Genesis that man needed the spirit breathed into him by God to give him life. No other creature needed the breath of God. We are supposed to believe that man evolved from an ape. Are to believe that when ape became man that man was dead?
As I've written previously there is absolutely no proof and there will be never be any proof for speciation evolution. Just as our born again experience started with the breath of God so had the original life start with the breath of God. The bible is the Word of God and is God breathed as Paul taught.
