Jesus and Adam are the same end of one loaf. When Jesus says, "I and the Father are one," he is referring to Adam.
15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth,
visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all
things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead,
so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to
himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.
The first soul is the Son of God. Christ is the head,as it says above. He is the head of the body, the church (Humanity). We, who are many, are one
loaf of bread.
1 Corinthians 10
And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ? 17 Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all
share the one loaf.
1 Corinthians 15
If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. 45 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”[f]; the last Adam, a
Adam is the heel on one end that allowed the error to come in. Adam on the other end is Jesus, the first born among the dead. In other words, all of
humanity was born up to the first century. When Jesus said, "You must be born again, he was referring to the last three days of creation, the time it
would take to raise the temple again. All of humanity is the Son of God. As 1 Cor 10 states, "we, who are many, are one loaf."
When you condemn Christ, you are really judging yourself to judgment. In the same manner you judge others, you judge yourself. You will be judged
25 I know that my redeemer[c] lives,
and that in the end he will stand on the earth.[d]
26 And after my skin has been destroyed,
yet[e] in[f] my flesh I will see God;
27 I myself will see him
with my own eyes—I, and not another.
How my heart yearns within me!
28 “If you say, ‘How we will hound him,
since the root of the trouble lies in him,[g]’
29 you should fear the sword yourselves;
for wrath will bring punishment by the sword,
and then you will know that there is judgment.
Job knew two facts. 1) His Redeemer (ADAM) would live again. 2) The error lies in him. So does the salvation. Judge not lest ye be judged is what
Christ said. Why? Because every despicable than that has been done on Earth was done by the Son being raised here on Earth. That Son is us.
Do you blame the Father for the Prodigal Son? You shouldn't. The heel crushes the head of Satan. We, who are many, do this part with Christ. We
have the victory through the Son, without which, we would not have life. God is good even if his children are not.
And I will put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring[a] and hers;
he will crush your head,
and you will strike his heel.”

I disagree and belive you never made that point
My first thread on ATS and the challenge remains in favor of God being Good.
All you have done is what Nixon did when he said nothing he did could be illegal, because he was the president.
Your conclusion is an exercise in circular logic, that whatever He did was good because He was God.
The Old Testament describes an evil god, that's just a fact.
If you think the OT description of God is accurate and good, then you have no business being a Christian.
You should convert to Judaism and have done with it because the Christian God is directly opposed to the OT version of a god.
Evil was allowed to flourish under an evil god for a reason, and now we have the explanation, which is we can now appreciate the good God we now know
of through Jesus, the Father of Christ, who no man has ever seen. That means He is not the same person as the OT god who was very much an ordinary
sort of person and indistinguishable from other men, except by certain gifted ones with the power of discernment.
