The Theological Implications of the Historicity of Adam
Although not new, this essay by Robert Strimple from 1989 nicely summarizes the inherent biblical and theological problems associated with denying an historical Adam. At the end of the essay, Strimple states:
"To conclude: Our understanding of the reality of Adam affects our understanding of sin, of redemption, and of the Redeemer. The one who rejects the Biblical teaching regarding the historical Adam and the historical Fall will find no firm basis for accepting the Biblical teaching regarding the historical, Incarnate Redeemer."
