No. Jesus may not be considered Adam re-incarnate. Yet it's not hard to figure out where somebody might have gotten that idea. This is just a case of not understanding the terminology being used. Somebody got some of the words cross-wired¹ without understanding the concept. In Christianity Jesus is known as the "Second Adam" or "Last Adam" but the naming ...

There's nothing in scripture that supports the idea of reincarnation, meaning that the soul of a deceased person begins anew in the body of another. Jesus is referred to as a "new Adam" here, which may be what you heard: 1 Corinthians 15:45 The first man Adam became a living being; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit. Though this is plainly read as ...

Doctrine and Covenants 105:53-56 53 Three years previous to the death of Adam, he called Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared, Enoch, and Methuselah, who were all high priests, with the residue of his posterity who were righteous, into the valley of Adam-ondi-Ahman, and there bestowed upon them his last blessing. 54 And the Lord appeared ...

The Church Fathers referred to Jesus as the New Adam And one who is very bold might venture even to come to the New Adam, my God and Lord Jesus Christ, Who is counted the Seventy-seventh from the old Adam who fell under sin, in the backward genealogy according to Luke St. Gregory of Nanianzus (AD 325-389) - Oration 41 So the idea has been around ...

Before the fall, when Adam and Eve disobeyed God there was no sin in the world: Romans 5:12 through 14 NKJV Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned— 13 (For until the law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless death ...

Edward's view is more or less the traditional view. To give an earlier example, St. Thomas Aquinas says the following of the knowledge of Adam. And man was made right by God in this sense, that in him the lower powers were subjected to the higher, and the higher naturewas made so as not to be impeded by the lower. Wherefore the first man was not impeded ...

Yes. As @Brasshat cites in his answer, Genesis 3:22 shows that to take from the Tree of Life allows one to live forever, and Adam and Eve were expelled from the garden specifically so that they could not eat from the Tree of Life and live eternally. Messiah reveals in John 17 that to live forever means to know the Father and the Son, in the sense of ...

No, Adam and Eve were not meant to live forever. If they had been, God would not have made the pronouncement in Genesis 3:22, "and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever"­--Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the Garden of Eden...

Perhaps death was not the RESULT of Adam's disobedience, but CERTAIN ("surely die") death was the RESULT. That is, Adam was created mortal. As a mortal, Adam would eventually die. Hence, the availability of the Tree of Life (TOL). That is, unless Adam partook of the TOL which he was free to eat from, he would eventually die. It is clear from scripture ...

I am LDS and this is the first time I have heard of this 'doctrine'. I think I see where the confusion comes from. Narnian is correct that we talk about Adam in the temple. But we do not consider him a God. But rather Mormonism believes that we all have the potential be Gods and create worlds and have spirit children. Considering that we believe that Adam ...
