Original Sin/The Fall
Adam's sin brought death to humankind. Consequently, all of Adam's descendants inherit a corrupt sinful nature. We are born sinners. Our minds, hearts, and wills are fallen and corrupted by sin. In our sinful state, we are hostile to God and subject to his judgment and wrath.
God took on flesh and dwelt among us. The second person of the Trinity - the Son - was made like us in every way, except without sin and a sinful nature. He was fully God and fully man. One person (Jesus Christ) in two natures - a divine nature and a human nature.
Jesus was born to an earthly mother but did not have an earthly father. God's Holy Spirit overshadowed Mary so that the Son to be born to her would be called holy - the only begotten Son of God. This miraculous birth ensured that Jesus did not inherit the sinful nature of Adam.
Adam and Eve were uniquely made in the "image of God." As image bearers of God, they were moral, spiritual, and relational creatures with the ability to reason, think, will, communicate, and love. They could enter into a relationship with God and with others. After the fall the image of God in humankind and all of man's God given abilities were corrupted, although not entirely lost.
Creation Ex Nihilo
Creation out of nothing. Before God created the universe, nothing existed. Only God can create something out of nothing.
God's first promise of the gospel is found in Genesis 3:15. God pronounces a curse upon the serpent - Satan - and promises that one day a descendant of Eve will crush the head of the serpent. In the fullness of time, God will send a savior - the Messiah - to save humankind from sin and death.
The "good news" that God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but shall have eternal life. The good news is the answer to the bad news that apart from Jesus Christ we are trapped in our sin, subject to death, and liable to God's judgment.
to buy back. You are not your own, you were bought with a price. On the cross Jesus' final work was Tetelestai - Paid in Full. Jesus was saying that he paid the price for our sin with his blood once and for all.
