humanity 2.0

"But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive. ...  Thus it is written, 'The first man Adam became a living being'; the last Adam became a life-giving spirit."  (1 Corinthians 15:20-22, 45 ESV)

"Adam and Christ stand against each other as two great figures at the entrance of two worlds, two creations, the old and the new... And in their actions and fates, lie the decisions for all who belong to them, because all men are comprehended in them."  (Hermann Ridderbos)

"Every man will finish his life in the shadow of one of these men."  (Robert Lewis)
