|Born again/ regeneration/||
To be born again, one must be born a first time to YHWH and that was only Israel. In order to be re-generated, one must first be generated. Ex 4:22, 23; Ez 16; Deut 32:5, 6;
The Elect, Remnant, only 1st Century OC Jews were the called out ones (Ekklesia) from Old Covenant. Matured by 70AD. They were the Body of Christ, assigned to complete His mission (healing, spreading gospel) after His ascension.
Genesis is about the covenant creation and not physical creation. Functional Ontology NOT Material Ontology. This is consistent with other ANE creation accounts. Literal material creation doesn’t make sense.
Uncreated; without purpose; spiritual ignorance/darkness. Jer 4:22-28
Separated from YHWH’s presence. Adam Died THE DAY he ate from the tree of knowledge of good and evil (Law), which was disobedience of a direct command of YHWH, and was forced to leave the Garden (Gods Presence). Adam's death was spiritual/covenantal.
Unformed, without purpose, out of covenant.

It’s Gehenna, not Hell. Gehenna is the proper name for a location outside of Jerusalem where child sacrifice and dead bodies were placed and burned.
Rom 9:4; eph 1:11-14; Heb 9:15
Spiritual: joy, peace, righteousness in The Holy Spirit; Here NOW
Last Days were the last days of OC Israel. Acts 2:17, Heb 1:2

The Pre-incarnate Eternal Word; second person of The Trinity
|Universalism – Adam all die, Christ all live||Logical implication of 1 Cor 15:22, Rom 5:18 if Adam is the federal head of all humanity, then Christ must be the federal head of all humanity spiritually, thus, universal salvation. Btw, we are not universalist. Just showing the logical conclusion of where traditional christianity leads.|
