There's alot of reading......
The Resurrection of Christ the Redeemer is the completion of the Great Work for the redemption of mankind from enslavement to Satan and corruption;
the power of sin is destroyed and Death itself is abolished..(sin from Adam and Eve....which was DEATH of old age ....into eternal emptiness)
The Resurrection of Christ grants every one the right to call himself a child of God; it is the return of Paradise lost,
the threshold of the Holy of Holies of immortal life and communion with God. St. Paul tells us that if there had been no Resurrection then our
Christian faith would have been deprived of any foundation or value: If Christ has not been raised,
then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain.... If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins (1
Cor. 15:14, 17).
But Christ is risen; He rose the First among the sons of earth,(He is the New Adam .in order to destroy the sin,God took flesh of man and became man
in order to destroy Adam's sin)
and thus manifested His Might and His Divine Power.
Through our forefathers disobedience to God,
sin took possession of human nature,(after the sin of Adam man changed and all nature ,animals etc..)
and brought decay and death in its wake.(this is the first death ....nature became corrupted)
But Christ abolished original sin and cleansed the fallen Adam (Eph, 1:7). With His divine blood He raises man into a new creation (1 Cur.
In Romans 5:12 St. Paul says that By one man sin entered the world,
and death by sin, and a little later, in Romans 8:20–21, he says that the creation entered into corruption because of man's sin.....
Orthodoxy does not accept the idea that we are '''guilty'' of Adam's sin.
No, Adam alone was guilty of his sin.
However, we do share the consequences of his sin.(meaning death to all man) We are born into corruption, and with an inherited tendency or
inclination toward sin. (we have the ability to sin on our own free will)
All of us sin, and so we deserve the consequences of sin: spiritual and physical death, and eternal separation from God in hades.....
During the Old Testament period,
God gave laws to the Hebrews to help them live righteous lives.
He instituted animal sacrifices, which the Hebrews were to make as offerings for sin.
These sacrifices were a prefiguration of Christ's sacrifice,
to prepare the people of God to understand and accept the meaning of Christ's death on the Cross.
But neither the sacrifices nor the laws were able to restore mankind to the state he had lost at the Fall.
A perfect, blameless sacrifice was needed—a man who was without sin—in order to destroy the consequences of sin....
That was why Christ came. The first Adam fell from his original designation, bringing everything into ruin. Therefore Christ, Who is called the
Second Adam or the New Adam, came into the world to fulfill man's original designation and restore what was lost.
But Christ did even more than that. He not only restored man to what Adam was before the Fall: He gave man the possibility to become that which Adam
was supposed to become, what Adam could have become had he not fallen.
