For instance, Galatians 5:14:

"For if through the offence of one* many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man**, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many".

* i.e. Adam
** Koine Greek: anthropou.

Apart from the references or allusions to Jesus as a human ( a jew in fact), there is the general emphasis on Jesus being the proof that (other) humans can cheat death also. In a way, it would make no sense to the core message and appeal to the superstitious human readers if Jesus was not the supposed proof, and the counterpoint to Adam, according to the writer.
