From the very beginning, the Bible tells a story of redemption. God made the first man to rule as king over all He created, only to see Adam’s reign end before it had barely begun. God knew all this, and that’s why He sent the One True King, Jesus, to dwell with us and reclaim what Adam had lost, saving mankind from the penalty of sin. Bestselling author Gloria Furman makes this concept come alive for kids as she compares Adam, the archetype, with Christ, “the last Adam.” Children will learn that while Adam’s sin sentenced all of us to death, Jesus’s crucifixion and glorious resurrection restored the promise of eternal life for all those who believe in Him. Kids will be reassured that because Jesus is still on the throne, they can trust him whenever they feel sad or scared. There’s nothing that Christ their King can’t do for them!
