The Second Adam and the New Eve

Adam was tempted in the garden, and was sent to the wilderness

Jesus was tempted in the wilderness, and later entered the garden

Adam failed to guard the garden

Jesus sent Satan away from his presence

Adam failed to keep the word and the commandments

Jesus defeated Satan through the word

Adam caused the garden, the temple, to be defiled

Jesus cleansed the temple

Adam said, my will, not God’s be done

Jesus said, not my will, but your will be done

Adam and Israel demanded the food that they craved

Jesus, being hungry, told Satan, man shall not live by bread alone,

but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God

Israel was called out of Egypt and failed

Jesus was called out of Egypt and succeeded

Jesus is the New Israel

Jesus is the New Temple

Mary is the New Eve

The cosmos is the New Promised Land
