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.


Discussion for Genesis 3:21

  • Brenda smith for verse 21
    I feel God was showing them compassion by clothing them. Even though they sinned he still showed them mercy by sacrificing the animals to provide skins for coverings to hide their nakedness. Blood was also sacrificied.
  • I think God cover them for protection. Knowledge is power and wisdom is needed
  • PASTOR BENJAMIN BOTCHWAY for verse 21
    Not about what i think, i wanted to find the commentary meaning and understanding why God cloth Adam and the wife before sending them off from the garden.It's because of their nakedness that is why God cover or what kind of nakedness is the Bible saying about.
