Adam was the progenitor of the human race and came from the dust of the earth but in the image of God. He could have lived forever with God but sin brought the curse of death. As descendants of the first Adam, we too are but dust and we are as prisoners condemned to die. Jesus Christ, however, is called the second Adam by the Apostle Paul. In contradistinction to Adam, the ruin that the first man (Adam) brought to the race, the second man (Christ) reversed. In Adam we are living souls but Christ is the life-giving Spirit, according to Paul in 1 Corinthians 15. What does this mean? When Jesus resurrected three days after His death upon the cross, He became the pledge of our own resurrection. He came from glory and became dust so that we who are dust might share in His eternal glory. This great plan of redemption is not complete until the resurrection of the body and the destruction of physical death. We shall one day rise from our graves to live forever. How can this be? In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we examine the important doctrine of the bodily resurrection.
