From Jesus to Adam: Working Backwards on a Theological Problem

Trinity International University

Thursday, January 24, 2019 11am — 12:30pm CST

Most discussions and debate on Adam focus on issues tied to Genesis, but does the relationship to Jesus help us assess some of the issues raised about Adam? Our study will work backwards by asking how Jesus and the NT treat the issue of Adam. What does that mean for what we say about how Genesis presents the issues tied to genre and symbolism? In particular how Jesus and Paul handle the figures of Adam and Eve will receive attention. Then we will consider the implications of the results of our examination.
