More than Adam lost

“Christ was the second Adam. He came not only to bear our punishment for us but also to obtain for us the righteousness and life that Adam had to secure by his obedience. He delivered us from guilt and punishment and placed us at the end of the road Adam had to walk, not at the beginning. He gives us much more than we lost in Adam, not only the forgiveness of sin and release from punishment but also and immediately – in faith – the not-being-able to sin and not-being-able to die.”

(Reformed Dogmatics Volume 3: Sin and Salvation in Christ, Baker Academic, p. 395).

Peter serves as a pastor-teacher, at home and abroad, resourcing gospel-centred communities.
