After speaking with a brother in Christ, I'm somewhat confused about the contrast/comparison of the federal headship of Adam and the federal headship of Christ. Since Adam is the federal headship of the entire fallen human race, is Christ the NEW federal headship of all the human race? My question comes from Romans 5: 12-21. How does a covenant theologian deal with this passage? Note: I've read this article and came back more confused then enlightened... 2nd note: I come from a dispensational background(which I totally reject)... so it would be great to have full detail on this passage.
