Adam and Jesus: How They Are Related

Rated 3.00/5 based on 2 reviews
If Adam and Eve are not historical individuals, the first parents of the human race, does it follow that we cannot regard Jesus as an historical individual? Here is a reasoned explanation of how to understand the relationship of Adam and Jesus, without presupposing Adam to be an historical person. It builds on Paul’s explanation that Adam is a type of the one who is to come.

This book is loaded with good theology. It's also interesting to note that atheists like Desertphile think they know so much about the Bible. Look at his reviews for good books to read, if he gave them one star.

Review by: Desertphile on Dec. 12, 2014 :
I enjoy seeing the same argument being stated for 1,400 years for yet another time, after it has been stated a few million times in the past, as much as I enjoy re-breaking my right big toe every few weeks.

Eve and Adam, of course, did not exist: "eve" means "life," and "adam" means "man." The myths about them were not and are not meant to be taken literally.

The fact that Jesus was a myth is a stand-alone fact: it is not predicated upon any of the other myths the ancient Hebrews borrowed from their Canaanite ancestors, nor the myths they borrowed from their Babylonian over-lords.

Saul of Tarsus has nothing at all of any value to say in the matter, since he lived after the time period Jesus was claimed to have lived, by about 80 years or so. Quoting Saul as an authority in the matter is just.... silly.

Sheeeish.
