Christ is called “The Second Man” implying that there was not a man created after Adam until Christ. Adam was perfect, then Adam fell, Christ came taking back what Adam lost and possessing in him all moral perfection. Adam had no solution for man, Christ is the solution for man. Adam never preached salvation, Christ is salvation. Adam had no message for the fallen, Christ is the message for the fallen. “Though your SINS be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow.” This is evidenced by Peter who said “He did no sin” (1 Peter 2:22), Christ’s own revelation, “which of you convinces me of sin” (John 8:46). Pauls revelation of the Christ, “he knew no sin” (2 Cor 5;21). These things cannot be said of Adam, but they can be said of Christ and as the eternal man, lives without sin, decay, corruption or mortality. he is the sECOND ADAM. the new man of the new race, those born not of incorruptible seed but buy the will and word of God so it toucan be said of us, “though your sins, be as scarlet they shall be as white as snow!” He that beliveth in me shall not see death. Immortal promises for the seed of the second Adam and his race.
