Christ In The Flesh Of Adam

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Hi L____,
This is all very good. I would only add that Christ was also our “near kin” by being “made of a woman, made under the law… taking not the nature of angels, taking on Him the seed of Abraham… the son of Adam, the son of God.” And all of this “while we were yet sinners.”

Rom 4:25 Who was delivered for [ Greek, dia – through] our offences, and was raised again for [ Greek, dia – through] our justification.
Heb 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
Heb 2:15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
Heb 2:16 For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.
Heb 2:17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be [ as our kinsman redeemer] made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.
Heb 2:18 For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.

Christ’s very “inheritance is in the saints.”

Eph 1:18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

Just as ours is in Him.

Eph 1:19 And what [ is] the exceeding greatness of his power to us- ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
Eph 1:20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set [ him] at his own right hand in the heavenly [ places],
Eph 1:21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
Eph 1:22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,
Eph 1:23 Which is his body, [ which church is] the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

Your brother in Christ,
