Jesus Is The Key To All Of History And The Hope Of Every Heart

•, By Decision Magazine

In all of the connections between the Old Testament and New Testament, the story weaves together like a mosaic with thousands of pieces, or like a gem with innumerable facets that gleam with beauty.

The first story in the Bible is the story of Adam and Eve (Genesis 1–3). God created them and placed them in the garden… But Adam and Eve refused to trust in and obey God, and the sin and death that devastate our world spread like a cancer throughout the human race. But thankfully, that is not the end of the story. 

Jesus is the new and better Adam, the last Adam. The Son of God took on human flesh (John 1:14) and conquered sin and death as the last Adam (Romans 5:12–19; 1 Corinthians 15:20–21) so that we enjoy life and stand in God's presence cleansed of our sin—if we put our trust in Jesus.
