The Last Adam

Christ is not spoken of as “the second Adam” but as “the last Adam.” No further federal Head is to come. Adam was the head of the human race. Christ is the Head of the spiritual race. Mankind is divided into those who are “in Adam” or “in Christ.” The first Adam was created out of the dust of the earth. The last Adam was conceived of the Holy Spirit. The first Adam was born innocent and became a sinner. The last Adam was born holy and remained sinless. The first Adam was a man and remained a man, developing human frailties. The last Adam was made a quickening spirit—a life-giving Saviour. The first Adam was of the earth, earthy and natural. The last Adam was from heaven and spiritual (1 Cor. 15:45-47).
