Chestnut Ridge Church
Repackaged - Part 1
Has curiosity ever gotten the best of you, and you secretly opened a Christmas present early to see what you were going to get...only to rewrap it and pretend you were surprised at Christmas? Though the Christmas story—as it is "unwrapped" in the gospels—contains many surprises, the Old Testament believers should not have been surprised. God had not only revealed his "Christmas plan" through words (prophecies), but He also revealed it through stories. Repackaged looks at three Old Testament stories that point to God's greatest gift of all.

Jesus got right what Adam got wrong










Jesus got right what Adam got wrong



Jesus got right what Adam got wrong
He would have to be a representative of the whole human race
He would have to pass the test that Adam failed
He would need to be able to defeat death through his own death and resurrection
He would need to reclaim authority over all creation
Jesus Christ is not a Christian god alongside the Muslim god and the Hindu gods and the Jewish God. He is the universal Lord and Savior, and there is no other Savior. The point of the comparison with Adam is to show that there is one fundamental problem in the human race that began with Adam at the beginning: Sin. – Piper
