Adam and Abraham in Genesis

I am reading Michael Goheen’s latest A Light to the Nations (Baker) and loving it! When it comes to reading the big story of Genesis and the raising up of Israel, Goheen quotes this Rabbinic interpretation:

I will make Adam first and if he goes astray I will send Abraham to sort it out” (Gen. Rab. 14:6).
