Genesis 3:13-15 – Enmity and Grace

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.”

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.
