Abstract The Adam-Christ typology mentioned in 1 Cor 15:22, 45 presents a curious case for the reception
of the biblical creation account (esp. Gen 2:7). This reception of the Genesis text reflects an actualised reading that requires a special hermeneutical understanding of scripture. It is acknowledged that Paul’s hermeneutical lens for reading scripture is Christology. By using 1 Cor 10:1-14 as a point of departure, it is possible to deconstruct Paul’s hermeneutical technique of interpreting scripture backwards in light of an existent Christ and picking up on relevant Corinthian terminology (e.g. πνεῦμα). This very technique is also essential for comprehending the Adam-Christ typology as an actualised reading of the biblical creation account in order to foster Paul’s argument for the existence of the resurrection of the dead.
