Discussion for Genesis 3

    Lostribeman, Gen.4 Adam knew his wife and she conceived, had a son named Cain.If Cain is NOT mentioned in the Lineage of Adam as you claim, how do you explain? Gen.4:17 "Cain's wife bare (gave birth to) Enoch" v.18, etc. gives family names born to Enoch,and so on.
    "Adam knew his wife" The word "knew" in holy writ many times refers to sexual intercourse.
    Gen.4:25, 1Samuel 1:19, Gen.4:17,etc.

    Its interesting to note that Cain is not included in Adams Lineage. Its also Interesting that Jesus Christ was several times called the Son of Man with his lineage traced back to Adam. What was the importance of this statement "Son of Man" Its also interesting to note that the Serpent "Satan" also known as the BEAST and so called, will have those who carry his MARK (DNA is described as MARKERS)

    Word,I posted a reply to your comment on chapter 2; page. Also, Adam "knew" (had intercourse with) Eve and she gave birth to Cain their first child after God removed them from the garden in Chapter 4. Because of these events of Eve's deception (the fall of man) all are born under sin.The concept of "Satan had Cain" is not in scripture. Where may I ask do you get your ideas? Books/pastor/friends?

    Word; I think you're trying to spirtualize too much into the things you read. Wait on the LORD for the knowledge and understanding; which He liberally gives to all who seek Him for it; "precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little." I understand and respect your zeal for knowledge, but until you're able to bear it, you have to wait!

    Vs 15 seed is child. I will put controversy between your seed/child Satan and the woman's seed/child. Satan beguiled, wholly seduced Eve and he was that old serpent the devil which is the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.2 trees that were not fruit trees in the garden. There was the creator of all things which was the tree of Life and Satan which was the other. Adam-Eve had Able. Satan-Cain.

    CORRECTION; Gen.3:20 "mother of all living". I said "mother of all the earth". Sorry!
