Genesis 5:2 (c) This man is a type of CHRIST in that he was the head of the human family, and

CHRIST is the head of GOD's family.

Adam was sinless in the first part of his life, and then deliberately and knowingly became a partner in Eve's sin in order that he might be with her, partake of her punishment, and continue to have her for his very own.

So our Lord JESUS was sinless and perfect.

  • He willingly and knowingly took upon Himself the form of a servant,
  • and was made sin for us that He might forever have us with Him. (See1Ti2:14). As by the sin of Adam all who are in Adam were made sinners, so by the obedience of CHRIST all who are in CHRIST are made righteous ( Romans 5:18).

Romans 5:19 (b) Adam was the first of the earthly family and CHRIST is the first of the heavenly family. Our bodies are in the likeness of Adam, and in the new creation we shall be like CHRIST, the last Adam.
