McCheyne on the first and last Adam

The first was fair, coming from the hand of God; the second is altogether lovely.

The first was made in the likeness/image of God; the second is God himself, the Lord of heaven.

The first was full of heavenly wisdom, so that he named all the creatures as they came; but in the second are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

The first was the head of the whole human race so that in him they stood, and in him they fell; the second is offered as a new head to every creature.
