ADAM was a Perfect Man, with the right to live forever, as long as he obeyed God. JESUS was a Perfect Man. Not of Adamic descent, born of a virgin by God’s power.
ADAM Sinned through disobedience JESUS Obeyed God perfectly JESUS Obeyed God perfectly
ADAM was condemned to death. “In the day that you eat of it you will surely Die” Genesis 2:17 Romans 6:23 Ezekiel 18:43
JESUS had the right to live forever, because obedient. "If a man be just, and do that which is lawful and right he shall surely live, says the Lord God." Ezekiel 18:5, 9 Deuteronomy 30:16 JESUS had the right to live forever, because obedient. "If a man be just, and do that which is lawful and right he shall surely live, says the Lord God." Ezekiel 18:5, 9 Deuteronomy 30:16
All of Adam’s children (the entire human race) inherit Adam’s sin and sentence of death. Romans 5:12,17-18 1 Corinthians 15:21-22
If Jesus had fathered children, his descendants would inherit his perfection, and if obedient, live forever.
Adam and all mankind would be condemned to dying and eternal death - unless another perfect man offered to give his life as a ransom (corresponding price) in Adam’s place.
Jesus gave up his own perfect human life to die as a ransom in place of Adam, thereby releasing the death sentence upon Adam and all his posterity!

“By one man (Adam) sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men.

"THE RANSOMED OF THE LORD SHALL RETURN!" AT THE “RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD”
"ALL that are in the graves shall hear" Jesus’ voice, and will "come forth." John 5:28 Revised Standard Version
This "Resurrection of the dead" will be in two parts:
