Supernaturally created by God, given dominion over Creation, enjoyed a brief, unique, unbroken relationship with the Creator, but his disobedience to the Creator’s command brought sin into the world, and he and his wife were driven from the garden in Eden, into the darkness of a sin-cursed world.
The eternal Son of God, born of a virgin in a sin-cursed world, truly God made flesh, the last Adam — Jesus Christ — obeyed the Law of God perfectly, yet gave His life as a ransom for sin, so that we could obtain salvation — reconciling the broken relationship with God, caused by the first Adam.
Simon Turpin is the executive director and speaker for Answers in Genesis–UK/Europe. He is excited about the opportunity the Lord has opened for him with AiG–UK in spreading the importance of creation apologetics, biblical authority, and the gospel. He holds a BA in biblical and intercultural studies and an MA in theology.
“ Was there ever a real historical first man called Adam? Because of belief in evolution and millions of years, sadly, an increasing number of evangelical theologians are denying a literal first man called Adam. If you deny the ‘First Adam,’ not only do you deny the sufficiency of Scripture and undermine its authority, but you ultimately attack the life, teaching, and person of the ‘Last Adam,’ our Lord Jesus Christ. The First Adam being supernaturally created from dust by God as recorded in Genesis is important for a coherent, logical, and internally consistent theological understanding of the biblical message of creation, fall, and redemption. This book by Simon Turpin is a powerful apologetics resource to equip Christians to defend the Christian faith in today’s world. ”
