“For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive” (1 Corinthians 15:22). When Adam disobeyed God, sin and death entered humanity, but when Christ died for our sins and resurrected, eternal life was made available to those who believe. The entire creation of God is suffering because of the rebellion of one man, Adam. In contrast, when Jesus Christ came down to earth sin and death was destroyed by his death and resurrection. Adam was the first man to die, and Jesus was the first Man to raise from the dead to eternal life. “Christ is the first who returned from the jaws of death to tell of immortality and light” (Spurgeon, Charles).
