In John 3:3 you will read: 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. So, as we study LORD GOD’S Word we will find out that it really should be translated as being “Born From Above. Let me explain. You have the first man Adam which is the Adam from the Garden of Eden. Not to get this confused as the first man on earth. And then, you have the Last Adam, which is Jesus Christ. He was referred to as the last Adam for our benefit, to document that they are from the same family, blood-line, genealogy.
Prophecy in the Bible was fulfilled exactly as written. And because of this, we can believe that all of Jehovah promises that He made to us in the Written Word are true.
Let’s now examine 1 Corinthians 15:45-49
45 And so it is written, the first man Adam was made a Living Soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
Note that this study is about Adam and Jesus Christ, not the 6th day creation. It’s about the family that Jehovah God chose to bring forth his Son.
Adam was called the first man, because he was the first man in his family and Jesus Christ is referred to the last Adam, because He was the last in God’s plan for the salvation of mankind.
When we look at the beginning of the verse, the first man Adam, it has a definite article, the, which means = a particular man, not mankind.
Then if we look at the second part, was made, this word means = to form. And the last part of the verse, the last Adam = Jesus Christ.
Now, let’s look at 1 Corinthians 15:46, 46 How be it that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
Here we have: that which is natural = Adam from the Garden of Eden And : that which is spiritual = Jesus Christ Again, this subject is about Adam and Jesus, not Adam and mankind.
