Adam and Eve, a Type of Christ and the Church

Genesis 2:23 - And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

The Bible is an amazing book inspired by the Holy Spirit. There are many types and shadows of people and events that point to Jesus Christ. For example in the Garden of Eden when Eve was deceived by the serpent into sinning against God, Adam had to make a choice. His choice was to be with his bride which meant to bring death into the world, he chose to sin. He was not tempted to sin like the woman was, but he made a choice that he would rather love his bride and be with her and therefore he chose to die to be with his bride. This is clearly a type of Christ who "for the joy set before him he endured the cross and despised the shame." Jesus willfully laid down his life because of his love for his bride, you and me. We will be married to Jesus forever.
