Jesus, The Last Adam

Joel Kontinen

The Bible knows of two Adams. The first of them was the earliest human in the entire history of our planet. He was a perfect human being when he was created, but his sin plunged the earth into disaster.

The apostle Paul speaks about the Last Adam in 1 Corinthians 15:45: “The first man Adam became a living being; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit”.

Where the first Adam failed, the Second Adam succeeded. He redeemed fallen mankind. He was none other than Jesus Christ, God ‘in the flesh’ or human form.

This brief video clip from Answers in Genesis shows us what the Last Adam did:
