Corinthians 152226

22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. 23 But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ's at His coming. 24 Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom (the Eternal Kingdom of the New Heaven and the New Earth) to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. 25 For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet. 26 The last enemy that will be destroyed is death.

Notice that all people who die in Adam (meaning every person) will be made alive in Christ but each one in his own order. When Adam sinned, the consequence for him and the rest of humanity was both physical death and spiritual death, meaning spiritual separation from God. All people are born with a fallen sinful nature inherited from Adam, which the Bible calls 'the old man'. All of humanity, being descendants of Adam, are spiritually separated from God and born as children of Satan until God makes them alive in Christ as children of God.

Therefore, in the scripture above, 'in Adam all die' means that all people die physically and spiritually because of Adam's disobedience to God through sin. In Christ, the same all who died physically and spiritually in Adam will be made alive in Christ because of Christ's obedience to God through His death on the cross, redeeming the sins of the whole world.
