Typology Lesson 1

Adam



In (Romans 5:14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.) we learn that Adam is the figure (type) of Jesus who was to come.  Adam was given a great responsibility in obeying God.  His disobedience would result in sin against God and Mankind.  So by one man, Adam, sin entered into the world and all mankind came under condemnation of sin.

Jesus as the last Adam would be obedient to God and bring justification to mankind.  The first Adam brought death and the last Adam (Jesus) brought life.  

Those who will come by faith through grace can have eternal life in the last Adam (Jesus).  

Adam and Jesus are a type of a natural body and a resurrected body, an earthly body and a heavenly body, a natural person and a spiritual person and a lost sinner with death and a savior with life.  

The events in the creation of Adam and his actions will help us to understand the great teachings concerning Jesus.
