O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

"It is a non-concordist, or a non-material view that Genesis is a covenantal story about the creation of the Old Covenant with Israel, not the material world or planet." Riley O'Brien Powell

This is really good. If the video quality could be improved, and the dialogue re-done so that it doesn't sound scripted with lines re-read, it could be something perfect to send to leading Genesis scholars. Great job all around though :)

So Adam is not the first man in our world but the first covenant man which lead to the start of the nation of israel. So there were other humans when Adam was created but none in covenant with Yahweh. Could some please ans this I thing I'm starting to get it....amen

William,  Yes and no.  God had other covenants with other people, but these were not "The Covenant" and these people were not "The Covenant People."  These other covenants were much more limited.  These include (but not necessarily limited to) God's covenants with Tyre, Cain, Lot, Sodom, Ishmael, Esau, Nineveh, Nebuchadnezzar, Cyrus, etc.  Tim Martin did a talk on this at one of the Covenant Creation Conferences.

How does having other people in addition and apart from a single historic individual named Adam affect Paul's statements:

that sin came to all through Adam

Adam, the first man

in Adam all die


What is the sin from which other people needed to be delivered and how did other people apart from "The Covenant People" come under this sin?


Why do other nations need to partake of a redemption to The Covenant People of a sin that was committed by Covenant People yet these other nations weren't involved?


Yeah, my thoughts are all over the place but any help would be appreciated.

Christ died for who's sins in accordance to the scriptures?

Paul reminds the perhaps predominantly Gentile believers in Corinth of the gospel which he had originally preached to them. This gospel he had received from others: “that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures…” (1 Cor. 15:3–4). My question is this: Who does “our” refer to? For whose sins did Christ die?
