Christ: The Second Adamosborne_sunrise2.jpg

(1) The baptism of Jesus and God’s attestation of Jesus’ sonship ( Luke 3:21–22)
(2) The genealogy of Jesus going all the way back to Adam (3:23–38)
(3) The temptation of Jesus (4:1–13)

Christ Restored Dominion

Restored Humanity

Worldwide Restoration

(1) By Jesus Christ “all thing were created” (Col. 1:16).
(2) By Jesus Christ “all things hold together” (1:17).
(3) By Jesus Christ “all thing” will be reconciled to God (1:20).

No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make His blessings flow
Far as the curse is found.
