Death came into the world because of what man (Adam) did, and it is because of what this other man (Jesus) has done that now there is the resurrection from the dead.
Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned (Romans 5:12).
We have already found that because of what one man, Adam did, sin entered the world and death spread throughout the world. We know that everything began to grow old and die. But now we want to look at the contrast between the one who started all of this and the one who end all of this.
