Adam in the New Testament

Full Product Description

From where does man come and who is he? When we look at Scripture, we immediately encounter Adam.

Does Scripture characterize Adam as a historical person in whom the history of humanity began or merely as a model, used in a framework of teaching without historical significance? The answer to this question has far-reaching consequences.

Adam in the New Testament by Versteeg, translated by Richard Gaffin was published by P & R Publishing in November 2012. The ISBN for Adam in the New Testament is 9781596385221.

"Among [this work's] many virtues let me mention two. First, Versteeg stresses clearly that Paulís arguments in Romans and 1 Corinthians depend upon historical sequence: both Adam and Jesus acted as representatives. Second, our view of Adam is bound up with our view of sin: is it an intruder into Godís good world (the traditional position), or is it a necessary part of the creation (which denial of historical Adam entails)? Anyone reading this will appreciate that contemporary discussions of Adam are still treading the same ground." - C. John Collins , Professor of Old Testament, Covenant Theological Seminary. Author of Did Adam and Eve Really Exist: Who they were and why you should care

"Given the recent debates about the existence of Adam, this vigorous defense of historical Adam is relevant now as it was when first published in Dutch. The exegetical and theological issues remain the same today. Versteeg shows with vigor and cogency that the New Testamentís teaching requires a historical Adam, and his defense deserves the attention of all who are interested in the question." - Vern Poythress, Professor of New Testament Interpretation, Westminster Seminary
