Adam and Satan

The first Adam came, was defeated by Satan in a testing, was thereby bound by Satan, and was kicked out of the Garden.

The second Adam came, himself defeated Satan in a testing (Matt 3:13-4:11), thereby binding Satan (Matt 12:28-29), and kicked Satan's hosts out of bound people's lives time and again throughout the Gospels.

When Jesus exorcised demons, he was doing what Adam should have done to the serpent in Eden.
