    5. Both were tempted to eat that which was forbidden; one to eat the fruit of the forbidden tree; the other to turn stones into bread;-the first yielded, the other triumphed. Genesis 3:6; Matthew 4:3.TTA 7.8

    6. Both were tempted to gratify the lust of the eye;-the one to take the fruit because it was “pleasant to the eye;” the other to fall down and worship the tempter, being promised “all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them.” Genesis 3:6; Matthew 4:8.TTA 8.1

    7. Both were tempted with the pride of life;-the one to take of the fruit because it was to be “desired to make one wise;” the other to cast himself down from the pinnacle of the temple, with the promise, “He shall give his angels charge concerning thee.” Genesis 3:6; Matthew 4:6.TTA 8.2

    8. The first fell by eating; the other reversed the sentence by fasting.TTA 8.3

    9. The one was placed in paradise, and fell into the wilderness and death; the other was driven into the wilderness, and will restore that which was lost.TTA 8.4

    10. The one was tempted, surrounded with all the tame and harmless animals of creation; the other was in the wilderness with the “wild beasts.”-Mark 1:13.TTA 8.5

    12. The fall of the first, was in the garden of Eden; the last temptation of the second, was in the garden of Gethsemane, when all the powers of darkness were let loose upon him.-Luke 22:43, 44, 53.TTA 8.7

    17. Death and the grave triumphed over the one; but could not hold the other.-Revelation 1:18.TTA 8.12

    20. The first Adam was made a living soul, or subject to death and therefore mortal; the second Adam immortal, and therefore “brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.”-2 Timothy 1:10.TTA 9.2
