Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Genesis 3:21


3:21 These coats of skin had a significancy. The beasts whose skins they were, must be slain; slain before their eyes to shew them what death is. And probably 'tis supposed they were slain for sacrifice, to typify the great sacrifice which in the latter end of the world should be offered once for all. Thus the first thing that died was a sacrifice, or Christ in a figure.

    It is the tree of "KNOWLEDGE of good and evil". It was forbidden. To eat of it was to expierence disobeying God. Out of love He wanted us to choose obedience. Choose Him. God did not create evil. He allows it to give us a choice. For this reason, evil will exist until the end of time.

    so it looks to me like God created the subtil serpent (which a lot of Christian mistake for satan)
    God also is the one that CREATED the tree of good and evil so does that mean evil came from God and not any one else?

    This a hard story to to explain but to n good create life food n away to live a good life,but because Satan's evilness drove them away from a wonderful life,the creation n things he s done for a greater life but Satan's has a way of making things real good that we drift away from the goodness of good n ruin our godly living to such evilness n loose out on what we were created to live in paradise

    BSP; Very well said! We have the Word of God in the Scriptures to know, to speak forth in faith, to stand on by His grace, against every wicked thought or desire of the flesh that seeks to take us away from Jesus! The temptation isn't the sin! And if when we are tempted, we "Take the kingdom of heaven by force and violence" over our own thoughts and passions, by standing on the Word, we will win!
  • BSP
    Verse 6: Eve did not control her thoughts and actions and this led to disastrous results. We must continue to put forth effort to control both our thoughts and actions so that we can make wise decisions that are pleasing to Jehovah God.
