WEFOUND5: Paradise Regained and Samson Agonistes: John Milton: Twentieth Century Perspectives (Routledge Classics)


Intro : In our last study from Romans, we talked about how paradise was lost. We learned that Adam, the father of all humanity, sinned against God. As a result of his sin, the whole world was plunged into darkness. Adam's sin had dire consequences for the whole of humanity. As we move on in this chapter, we will see here how paradise is regained. What Adam gave away, Jesus bought back!

This passage is very difficult to understand. When it is read, it seems very confusing and fuzzy. This makes these verses extremely hard to outline. However, it may help to look at this passage as a series of contrasts. Paul is trying to show his readers the difference between what they received from Adam and what they have received from Jesus Christ.

There are three great contrasts that are mentioned here. For me, they untangle these verses and make their teaching clear. I would like to share them with you this evening. I do want to say that these verse comprise the central theme of the book of Romans. Everything to this point has been working towards this, and everything after this point works away from this. The whole point is that where Adam failed, Christ prevailed! What we lost in Adam, we get back, and much more, in Jesus.

Disclaimer: I do not own Inuyasha except for this wee little plot of this story. The title is based on a song by Luther Van Dross.

She was so beautiful inside and out to him. Most, be it humans or demons, would have claimed that she was not pretty in their pedestrian, conventional senses.

The temptation of Christ is detailed in the Gospels of Matthew , [1] Mark [2] and Luke . [3] According to these texts, after being baptized by John the Baptist , Jesus fasted for forty days and nights in the Judaean Desert . During this time, Satan appeared to Jesus and tried to tempt him. Jesus having refused each temptation, the Devil then departed and Jesus returned to Galilee to begin his ministry.

The writer of the Epistle to the Hebrews also refers to Jesus having been tempted "in every way that we [i.e. Christian believers] are, except without sin [i.e. Christ, though tempted, did not succumb to temptation].” [6] [ non-primary source needed ]

Mark's account is very brief, merely noting the event. Matthew and Luke describe the temptations by recounting the details of the conversations between Jesus and Satan. Since the elements that are in Matthew and Luke but not in Mark are mostly pairs of quotations rather than detailed narration, many scholars believe these extra details originate in the Q Document . The temptation of Christ is not explicitly mentioned in the Gospel of John but in this gospel Jesus does refer to the devil, "the prince of this world", having no power over Him. [7]
