Rabbi Tovia Singer Explores Messiah’s Relationship to Adam and Probes the Doctrine of Original Sin
The Christian doctrine of Original Sin teaches that as a consequence of the Fall of Man in the Garden of Eden, every person born into the world is enslaved to the service of sin and can do nothing to choose or merit his own salvation. Based largely on the epistles of Paul, we are told by the Church that “Christ is the final Adam,” where Jesus’ righteousness nullified Adam’s disobedience. What does Tanach really say about the relationship between Adam, David, and the Messiah? In this provocative broadcast, Rabbi Tovia Singer explores the account of Creation and the Messianic Age.
