Thought I’d pass along a recommendation I saw on Facebook the other day about Lutheran Rev. Joseph Seiss’s book, Holy Types: The Gospel in Leviticus.

Adam and Jesus
I had a great idea for today’s blog post during church and then utterly forgot it! Arg. It was about parallels between Adam and Jesus, and the ironic twist on how salvation is won through such similar means! The serpent speaks and the woman is deceived, but Christ speaks and that Word brings faith and salvation! There is the tree that tempted, and the tree stained with the blood of Christ. There is the death of Adam, and the death of Christ. It even occurred to me that there is the forbidden fruit in Eden and then the free offer, “Take. Eat. This is my body.” Adam and Jesus provide so much food for meditation! Oh! Oh! Evil by eating and then death gets swallowed!
