That Old Serpent, the Devil
Series Bible Insights
I want to tell you this story about the first humans in a perfect Garden who met up with a talking snake. The events in the Garden of Eden in Genesis Chapter 3 had profound effects upon the human race. Satan, the great Deceiver, managed to convince Eve to eat of the fruit of the tree from which God had forbidden them to eat. Adam followed her lead instead of God's command, and also ate the forbidden fruit. .
God's responded by turning Satan into a creature condemned to crawling on his belly. Yahweh God also declared that the descendent of the woman would bruise his head, while Satan's descendent would bruise the heel of the woman's descendent.
Satan's fate was sealed in the coming of the Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth, whose death and resurrection brought the fatal curse on Satan's head.
