    maar de genade die God aan alle mensen schenkt door die ene mens, Jezus Christus, is veel overvloediger.

    Why not just use een man here? Thanks!

    'Die ene man' refers to a man, 'die ene mens' refers to a person (or a human being).

    I would say 'ene' is in this phrase an adjective and not as an article, hence ending in 'e', similiar as in 'die grote mens'.
