Book Two - True Parents
Chapter Two - The Messiah and the True Parents
Section 3. Jesus and the True Parents

What kind of person is Jesus? Instead of becoming true parents, Adam and Eve fell in the Garden of Eden, becoming false parents and giving birth to false descendants. Jesus, therefore, came as the True Parent to restore all things and establish what should have originally been. Adam and Eve failed to become true husband and wife. At the same time, they failed to become true parents. Since they were unable to become a true couple, they also failed to become a true son and daughter. This is why, if people completely believe in and become one with Jesus, true children can be restored and a true husband and wife and true parents established. This is why it is taught that you should love Jesus the most. (8-109, 1959.11.22)

The Book of Revelation says that in the Last Days, the Lord will come to the earth to meet his bride. Do you know what the marriage supper of the Lamb is? This refers to the day of the feast when, for the first time in history, one bridegroom and one bride become husband and wife centering on God's love.

Through the Fall, instead of becoming good parents, our first ancestors became evil parents. For this reason, the original focus of parents designed by God, which our ancestors should have attained without falling -- the standard of the true and good parents -- has not appeared or been realized.

The Bible says: "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End." (Rev. 22:13) Due to the Fall, God could not fulfill His purpose at the time of creation. He will complete it as in the Book of Revelation.

Then, as what kind of person did Jesus come? Adam fell, so Jesus came as a perfected Adam who could be united with God's love without falling. This is why First Corinthians 15:45 teaches that "The first man Adam became a living being; the last Adam, became a life-giving spirit." The Bible designates Jesus as the second Adam. Since the family planned by God cannot be found if the God-given true positions of the son, husband and wife, and parents are not established, they must appear on earth.

There are many religions on earth, but among them, only Christianity has the concept of following God's four basic requirements: to become God's child, to become one body with God, to meet as bride and bridegroom in accordance with God's will, and to form a new family. Since Jesus came with this thinking, Christianity, centering on Jesus, inevitably became a global religion. (54-108, 1972.03.20)
