What is man?
The resurrected, ascended, and seated Christ is a completely new kind of Man.
There is fallen man: Adam.
There is glorified Man: Christ.
“Federal” refers to the action of one for all in a representative manner;
Or the consequences of such action.
ROM 5:12-21 presents the two representative Men, Adam and Christ.
Condemnation by Adam’s trespass, justification by Christ’s righteous act .
What kind of humanity is the Church age believer?
The expression “new creation” refers to a new act of creation by God.
This is exactly parallel to the first time God created humanity, in Genesis 1.
And now, for the second time, God has created a new human race.
This time, He created the spiritual man, designed for a heavenly existence.
The new creation is not the old creation improved.
In fact, the old man of ours was crucified with Christ according to Romans 6:6.
What are these old things?
EPH 4:22 refers to them as our former manner of life.
Old things - walking according to the course of this world.
The old things included living in the lusts of our flesh.
The old things added up to who we were by nature: children of wrath.
Humanity in Adam has a depraved mind.
He behaves wickedly and adopts many evil practices.
The old man has a hardened heart and lustful desires.
He is full of deceit.
The new things are associated with our new humanity in Christ.
The new man has a new status before God.
The new man has new desires and capacities.
The new man has a new mind, the mind of Christ.
The new man has a new life, and a new destiny.
