The particularity of the incarnation and resurrection forms the basis for the ongoing particularity of the redeemed of the church, while simultaneously eradicating the binary categories that inscribe hierarchies in the old age. As a metaphor, adoption confirms the continuity of personal identity in this way, which results in dignification of the embodied particularity of individuals in Christ.
