Sermon – September 5, 2021
Our culture often uses the phrase “she’s my type” to mean that a person has either the personality or physical traits that another person desires. The NT and theologians also use it in a positive sense, often when looking at how figures in the OT shadow and demonstrate the nature and work of Christ. Melchizedek, Moses, and David are all wonderful examples of this. Yet, here in our text today, Adam stands as our type; not of one who walks faithfully to show us Christ, but one that Christ will be the negative of, his complete and utter opposite. For Jesus has undone the evil and harm that Adam wrought, and he has become the true and better Adam.
