And so, Adam was created as the pattern of the One to come. And from that moment, all of history would be the story of these two men—Adam, the head of the old humanity, and Christ, the head of the new. And the fate of every person would be wrapped up in one or the other. And what Adam would break, Christ would mend.

So at a tree, the tree of knowledge of good and evil, Adam committed the mother of all sins, and he fell into death. At a tree, the cross, Christ obeyed His Father to the uttermost and conquered death. Adam brought sin and death; Christ brought righteousness and life.
