The Old Testament begins with the physical creation of our world and life. Adam, the first human, was created about 4000 BC based on the genealogies and ages provided in the Bible. Adam was formed from the dust of the earth and brought to life by the breath of God. God later created Adam’s mate, Eve, from Adam’s rib and they had many children. God gave them free will and they believed Satan’s lies instead of having faith in God, and ate from the TREE of knowledge of good and evil which is the law (Galatians 3:13). The law brought death to all mankind because no one can obey perfectly and all sin ultimately results in death. Adam died at the age of 930 and his mortal body returned to dust.
JESUS gives us a spiritual LIFE of immortality
Key Bible Reference: Matthew 1-2, Luke 1-2
The New Testament begins with the human life of Jesus, the Christ. He was born in AD1, however He existed spiritually as God prior to being born on earth as a baby (John 1:1,3,14). Jesus was born to Mary, a Jewish virgin, who was supernaturally impregnated by the Holy Spirit, so His blood was not tainted with human sin. At the age of 33, Jesus shed His perfect blood on the cross, a TREE, to redeem mankind from the curse of death that resulted when Adam and Eve ate from the TREE of knowledge of good and evil. Jesus rose from the dead 3 days later to show us that there is eternal life after death. Jesus went back to Heaven from where He came and sat down on His throne because the payment for our sins was finished. Have faith in Jesus, the TREE of Life, and eat from Him so your sins will be forgiven and you will have eternal life!
