Adam was the first man. He was made by God out of the dust of the ground (Gen. 2:7). He is the father of the human race and its Federal Head (representative). When Adam fell, we fell in him (Rom. 5:18, 1 Cor. 15:22). Sin entered the world through Adam (Rom. 5:12).
- "Then God said, 'Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.' 27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth." (Gen. 1:26-28).
