TCA Lesson 019: Adam, the New Testament, and the Church (BOH Series)

Dec 21, 2017 | Creation, Podcast

This week we’re examing Adam, the New Testament, and the Church. Were the NT writers and church fathers convinced of Adam’s historicity? Despite the fact that many attempt to support an old earth and even an allegorical Adam by appealing to writers throughout the centuries, an examination of the historical data seems to yield completely different results. For instance, what did Augustine really believe about the creation? Did a historical Adam have a rightful place in Paul’s theology in passages such as 1 Corinthians 15 and Romans 5? What about influential remembers such as Luther and Calvin—where did they stand on Genesis and Adam? We cover two chapters in our textbook this week, so hold on tight! As always—I highly recommend you actually buy the book (link below). There is SO much information we could not cover in this podcast. These chapters are extremely enlightening and very interesting as well.

In this lesson, you’ll learn:

  1. What the NT writers had to say about Adam.
  2. How the church has viewed Adam throughout the centuries.
  3. The downfall of Adam in theological circles.
