JESUS LIKE ADAM?
following is quoted from What Pastor Russell Said (1910), p.
Question: Was the man Christ Jesus like
unto Adam before Eve was taken from his side, or after Eve was taken from his
side, and before sin entered?
do not know, and nobody else knows, and I do not think it makes any difference
to us about the matter.
There is certainly nothing in the Scriptures that
would tell us which way our Lord was perfect – whether he was like unto Adam in
his perfection before Eve was taken from his side, or like the perfect Adam
after Eve was taken from his side.
I know of nothing
in the Scriptures that would enable one to answer that.
I feel there is no
difference whichever way it was; the sufficiency for the ransom-price was in
Christ because he was the Head anyway.
If he was merely as Adam was after Eve was taken
from his side, he was then the responsible one; and if he was like Adam before
she was taken from his side, he was the responsible one also.
