Is it true?

edited December 1969 in Faith Issues
Is it true that we consider the coming of christ as the rebirth of adam? One of my friends gave a lecture about how christ coming into the world marked the purification and rebirth of the human race... hence rebirth of adam


  • Ya thats exactly what i have always been taught. Thats why u you might hear sometimes in lectures, Christ is called the 2nd adam. Also sayidna anba david once explained it perfectly:
    "the first adam sinned therefore needed to be saved, then the second adam (christ) was born TO save."
    hope that helps

  • Hi child of christ

    I agree with Coptic Pete too. Jesus is also called the second Adam in the Orthodox faith. He is born to save the first Adam, and the whole world.
    And he did.
    God bless all
