Many people are confused about the difference between Adam and Jesus Christ. This difference is due to differences in beliefs. But the fact is that Adam created God out of dust, and then breathed life into him. Genesis 2: 7 “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became our soul”. Every organism dies and returns to dust. Now, Adam, God created it in His Word, and said, “Be alive, and live.”
All humans are descended from Adam and Eve, and they too fall and die. Christ is the Word of God who created all things and was created in John 1: 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. The word of God was not created, it existed all the time in God, and God had no beginning, it was. It is as His name is said to Moses “I AM, I AM” (Ex. 3.14). The main difference is that one (Christ) is the creator and the other is created. One (Christ) came from Heaven and returned to Heaven, and the other (Adam) came from the dust and returned to dust as all others. (Read 1 Corinthians 15: 45-48).
We all know that people are descended from Adam and Eve, so the traditional and common way people are. We all know that God has the power to do everything. The question I want to ask the reader is: If God wants people to come to earth where they live, in what way or in what way is it possible for you to come? Is it like a camel, a cow, a tree, a rock or just like a human being? The answer is obvious what would come as a person.
Now, a virgin has conceived and given birth to Jesus Christ. (Read Isaiah 7.14 / 9.6). The word of God, which was blown away by the virgin, became flesh and came among men. John 1:14 “the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth.”
As I mentioned above, every living person dies like Adam and all others. Christ died physically, but he was different from Adam and other men, and he was raised from the dead, as he had foretold in his life, because death was not in him as ordinary people. 1 Peter 3.18 … “being put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit”.
The conclusion is that Adam was a living being, created by God in His Word (Christ), and then died, and every living being from his own body would die. But Jesus Christ, who is the Word of God, who is, and who will be, who is eternal, and who is all-powerful, gives life to all things. May the Lord shine upon us.
