Federal Headship by John Calvin Rom 5;12-19.

This is also called representative headship.
[a] Just as Christ is the representative of all believers, Adam is representative of all humanity.

[b] As our representative Adam can sign  agreements on  on behalf of all humanity and the agreements will be binding just as an MP, President or King who sign any agreement on the behalf of the people.

[c] Similarly when Adam broke God's covenant we all broke it hence we are all sinners.
