Speaking the Truth in Love

Adam and The Christ

Introduction: As Christians we know that Jesus is our ultimate example of perfection. There are also many individuals in the scriptures that we can look to as examples of righteousness, and thus did many things in ways similar to Jesus. We are in the midst of a series of programs that compares some of these individuals to Jesus. Some of these people were similar because their lives emulated His life; others were similar because events that happened in their lives corresponded with events in His life. In all of these cases we can see the consistency of the Scriptures and of God's expectations for His followers. Tonight is Adam and The Christ.


• Both Have a Miraculous Beginning - Adam (Genesis 1:26-29): Jesus (Luke 1:26-38, 2:4-14)

• Both Givers of Life - Adam (Genesis 4:1-2, 25-26): Jesus (Colossians 1:15-23,Hebrews 1:1-2)

• Both Were Perfect and Innocent - Adam (Genesis 2:25): Jesus (Hebrews 7:26-27)

• Both Rulers - Adam (Genesis 1:26-28): Jesus (Ephesians 1:20-23)

• Deep Sleep Produced a Bride - Adam (Genesis 2:18-24): Jesus (Eph. 5:22-33,Rev. 19:6-8)

• Both Were Wounded in Their Side - Adam (Genesis 2:21): Jesus (John 19:34-37, 20:24-25)


• Both Tested - Adam (Genesis 2:16-17): Jesus (Philippians 2:1-8)

• Both Made Choices - Adam sinned (Genesis 3:1-7): Jesus never sinned (Hebrews 2:17-18, 4:15)

• Death or Life? - Death through Adam (1 Corinthians 15:20-24): Life through Jesus (Romans 5:171 Corinthians 15:45Colossians 3:4)

Closing: Adam was the first man and the one who brought sin into the world. That sin caused a separation from the Tree of Life and physical death. A Savior was needed: Jesus, The Christ! He paid the price for man’s sins (Hebrews 9:27-28). Following Him will reunite you with God (John 3:16, 14:16) and bring you to the Tree of Life (Revelation 22:1-5)! Why not become one of His followers, a Christian? Believe Him, confess that He is the Son of God, repent of your sins, and be baptized to wash them all away in His blood. The reward is a meaningful life on earth and eternal life in Heaven! We hope to see you on Monday, October 21, on “Speaking The Truth In Love” when we hope to study “Moses and The Christ!
