In this series, Daniel Kirk looks at Paul’s theological arguments concerning Jesus Christ in Romans and 1 Corinthians 15, exploring to what extent Paul’s statements rest on the historicity of Adam and Eve. He first explains how Old Testament stories relate Israel’s history to the purposes of God in the world. After looking at the Old and New texts, he concludes that Paul is interpreting the Adam narrative in light of Christ and not vice versa. As Kirk finishes his discussion, he scrutinizes Paul’s claims in 1 Corinthians as he searches for their underlying purposes.
