well, all I'm saying is that I think Jesus was referencing a particular man, Adam, and not the whole human race. Jesus is the second Adam and the last Adam. It takes a lot of looking at that to make sense of it.
In a sense, also, Eve, coming as she did from the rib of Adam, is also Adam, and is called 'Adam'--
1This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;
2Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.--Genesis 5
It is the woman (church) and the seed of the woman which is at enmity with the serpent, which I believe is prophecy of the virgin birth. The seed of the woman is Christ.
15And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. --Genesis 3
Exactly in the rythum of this post, the seed of the Woman is Christ. Jesus is also the Son of Woman, he came from the Womb of Woman, and as the head of the Church, he has taken all of humanity into " His Womb", his Church, and through that we shall become the Living Sons of God. From the Womb of the earth came Adam, from the Womb of Adam came Woman, from the Womb of Woman came Christ, from the Womb of Christ came the Church. All go back to the Womb to experience a new birth. Matt.12:40;" For just as Jonah was 3 days and nights in the Womb of a sea monster, so shall the " Son of Man" be three days and nights in the Womb of the Earth."
Jesus became the Son of Man, by being birthed by a Woman. God created Man first, but mans womb wasNOT what God wanted to reproduce his creation with, he wanted the Womb of a Woman to begin that process of reproduction. It is the same with his church, or his renewal, or reconciliation process, all these begin with the Woman.
Matt.11:11, Truly, I say to you, amoung those born of a Woman there has not arisen anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet he who is least in the Kingdom of Heaven is greater than he. The teaching here is that the great man, John, came from a Woman, the Woman may be considered a small part of Johns birth, but in the Kingdom, she will be Greater than who she gave birth to. This is the future of all Women in Gods Kingdom. To be greater than who they gave Birth to. The Womb, or the Church, will be greater in the Kingdom than it is now.
The Sabbath was " Made for Man", so Man is greater than the Sabbath. But Man was " Made by the Womb", so the Womb, or Woman, is far different than a Sabbath. A Woman is a " Living Church", a Living Temple, A " Living Sign". The Rainbow is a continual sign, but it is not living. A Woman is a " Living Reproducing Element of God Reproducing Actual Living Extentions of Himself." And Jesus is a product of this, a Son of this. Nothing alive can overpower this process of creation through the Womb, not even the gates of hell or death shall overpower it.
The interesting thing to consider is this: None of this was possible without the Womb. Or the Woman. The Womb is a filter of our creation. And whats even more interesting, is Why. Why does God, or why did God, use this creative process, as opposed to outright instant creation?
