Genesis 3:13-15 – Enmity and Grace

43 minutes

On today’s episode, we unpack Genesis 3:13-15, a pronouncement of judgment upon the serpent, but also of grace and good news for Adam and Eve. We examine other passages in Scripture for the pattern that is set by the antithesis between the seed of the serpent and the seed of the woman. We also explore the relationship between verse 15 and the gospel of Christ, “he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.”

  1. Mark G says:

    Thanks guys. I’ve been intrigued by that idea of enmity between the 2 seeds for as long as I can remember and have thought it seems to be underemphasized. It seems foundational to the theology of Paul, for example, where he dichotomizes things such as old man / new man, earthly / heavenly, flesh / Spirit, present age / age to come.

I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naïve. (Romans 16:17-18)
