Genesis Chapter 3 Discussion

  • Lystra George on Genesis 3
    And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

    would like to understand what God meant by this verse.
  • Vince - in Reply on Genesis 3

    I think God is having Eve know that she has child bearing seeds in her and her offsprings will be at odds with the animals; the animals being represented by the serpent. Remember, the whole garden of Eden story is the introduction of the knowledge of good and evil. I hope this helps. VINCE.

    Lystra George ,you can take this literally ,humans and snakes ? We dont usually get on too well ,there is a symbolical meaning too ,im sure the symbolism will be revealed to you as you read your Bible ,i could tell you but it would spoil it for you ,just take it as literal for now .
  • Alex on Genesis 3
    Wow, this version is really interesting. I have studied almost always from the New International Version but a few times from the Living Bible too.
  • Sally on Genesis 3:6
    Genesis 3:6

    "And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat."

    Don't eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

    God's word is wisdom.

    first Timothy 6:6

    But godliness with contentment is great gain

    Satsn is a beguiler

    Gen. 3:6

    It's showing that both Adam and Eve were watching the serpent eating the fruit in front of them thus convincing them that there is no death in the fruit. VINCE.
  • Jael on Genesis 3
    What does verse 24 mean ( child version)
  • Vince - in Reply on Genesis 3

    Gen. 3:24

    This shows the first exodus. Notice in all the exoduses in the Bible there is a death then a curse and then a movement or exodus. When God is about to do something great, a death takes place then a curse and finally a movement. Vince.
  • Sf on Genesis 3
    God will work against those that don't honor him.

    love your weaknesses like Paul. if Satan is telling you of your lack then you know he is covering up the greater thing that you posses so you'll lose it.

    godliness with contentment is great gain.

    bow your heart to your king.

    Rebecca, the fast that the Lord wants is found in Isaiah 58
  • William - in Reply on Genesis 3
    Isaiah 58th chapter is a great commentary by God on fasting.
  • Genesis 3:13

    "And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat."

    1 Peter 2:22

    King James Bible

    Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth

    King James Bible

    Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!
  • Victor on Genesis 3
    two questions:

    1. Genesis 3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden,

    does this mean tree of life and tree of the knowledge of good and evil are the same?

    2. Genesis 3:5 and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

    how to understand "gods" here?
  • The Two Trees in the Garden of Eden - in Reply on Genesis 3
    One of Jesus's names is the tree of life.

    Eden was protected by an Angel after Adam and Eve were driven out of it.

    If they had eaten of the Tree of Life, they would have lived eternally in their fallen state.

    Search the Book of Revelation. The Tree of Life was moved from earth to Heaven.

    GENESIS 3:22

    And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:


    In the midst of the street of it (heaven)and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

    GENESIS 3:24

    So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.


    He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the TREE OF LIFE, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

    GENESIS 3:22 the man is become as one of us

  • The Godhead Scriptures Found in the Bible - in Reply on Genesis 3
    The Scriptures about the Godhead. Sometimes called "Let Us..." in some passages. These scriptures are evidence of all 3 persons of the Godhead speaking to each other.

    Genesis 1:26, 3:22, 11:7

    Isaiah 6:8

    Romans 1:20

    Colossians 2:9

    Acts 17:27-30

    1 John 5:7

    John 10:30

  • Godhead of the Bible by Mishael - in Reply on Genesis 3
    Hi Victor! You are blessed. You have discovered the first of many Godhead scriptures in the Bible.

    This is proof of the 3 persons consulting with each other, concerning mankind.

    The Father purposes

    The Word (Jesus) speaks. (John 1:1)

    The Spirit (Holy Spirit) executes the spoken word. Action.

    Together, they created everything that we see, know, feel, and are still discovering every day. Through Jesus's cross, we can speak/pray/praise them with the words of our mouth, the meditations of our hearts, and our souls; which came from God. That in scripture He says ALL souls belong to me.

    For me personally, there is no better feeling or knowing, that I belong to God. He is mine and I am His. (Song of Solomon). All we must do is to possess that love with all of our strength. If strength is weakened by daily sin, we have only to call upon God for cleansing, rescue and restoration; salvation. If God is for us, who can be against us?

    Talking to Him is the greatest pleasure I have ever known! With the finished work of the Cross of Christ: I can walk with God as Adam once did in the garden.

    Satan's lies no longer have POWER to distract and destroy our relationship with God. If sin occurs, we have only to confess it and turn away from it. Gods strength is made perfect in our weakness.

    Doubts that God doesn't love or forgive us, are mind bombs from the Devil and his workers of iniquity. Resist it and run straight to the Cross.

    In the Center of creation and Revelation, is the power and victory of the Cross of Jesus: savior and Messiah.

    The Sting of Death cannot touch us anymore. Absent from the body; present with our Lord. In Christ, there is no fear. We step outside of Time, and step into Eternity; in a second.

    Today if we hear Him knocking on the door of our heart: answer the door! Invite Him inside.

    Don't be afraid of the one Person on this planet who loves and accepts you, as is. His blood sacrifice was enough to cleanse.

  • Victor on Genesis 3
    Genesis 3:22 LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us.

    which ONE?
  • E J F on Genesis 3:16
    So when Eve is told Adam will rule over her - is it like A L Harrison wrote - as Christ ruled and rules over churches?

    If so how does that translate to marriage? Like Adam makes sure Eve keeps the sanctity of marriage and doesn't fall prey to dodgy things of this world?

    How does one interpret this?
  • SkipVought on Genesis 3
    This week's Bible study is Genesis 37 & 38.

    Genesis 37 is Joseph's dreams and Joseph sold into slavery.

    Genesis 38 is Judah and Tamar.

    It's strange that the Joseph story gets interrupted by this sordid incident in Judah's family.

    It's significant that Tamar is one of the few women referenced in genealogies and these are the in the lineages of David, King of Israel and Jesus, The Messiah. Other women in these genealogies are Rahab, the Canaanite harlot, Ruth the Moabite and Bathsheba, the wife of Uriah, the Hittite.

    It's amazing that Moses recorded this about 400 years before David and 1400 years before Jesus. Chuck Missler of Koinonia House points out that the names of Boaz, Ruth, Obed, Jesse and David appear in order in the characters of the Hebrew text at 49 (7*7) letter intervals in chapter 38.

    The specific incident was that Judah fathered twin boys by his daughter-in-law. So Pharez would be considered to be illegitimate.

    "A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD. An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the LORD for ever:"Deu 23:2-3

    Turns out, according to Ruth 4:18-22, that David was the tenth generation from Pharez. Yet "I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will," (Act 13:22) despite the edicts of The Law.

    "He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end."Ecc 3:11

    "I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him."Ecc 3:14

    I welcome your insights and comments.

    what date was ezra given to return to israel
  • SkipVought - in Reply on Genesis 3

    This decree by Cyrus was probably in 539BC.

    "Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying, Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, The LORD God of heaven hath given me all the kingdoms of the earth; and he hath charged me to build him an house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all his people? his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem, which is in Judah, and build the house of the LORD God of Israel, (he is the God,) which is in Jerusalem. And whosoever remaineth in any place where he sojourneth, let the men of his place help him with silver, and with gold, and with goods, and with beasts, beside the freewill offering for the house of God that is in Jerusalem."Ezr 1:1-4

    The foundation of the temple was laid in 536BC.

    "Now in the second year of their coming unto the house of God at Jerusalem, in the second month, began Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and the remnant of their brethren the priests and the Levites, and all they that were come out of the captivity unto Jerusalem; and appointed the Levites, from twenty years old and upward, to set forward the work of the house of the LORD."Ezr 3:8

    I don't know what date you're looking for, but these dates mark these events in Ezra.
  • Richard in Christ on Genesis 3
    Wisdom of Solomon 2:1-10 But the souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and there shall no torment touch them.

    2 In the sight of the unwise they seemed to die: and their departure is taken for misery,

    3 And their going from us to be utter destruction: but they are in peace.

    4 For though they be punished in the sight of men, yet is their hope full of immortality.

    5 And having been a little chastised, they shall be greatly rewarded: for God proved them, and found them worthy for himself.

    6 As gold in the furnace hath he tried them, and received them as a burnt offering.

    7 And in the time of their visitation they shall shine, and run to and fro like sparks among the stubble.

    8 They shall judge the nations, and have dominion over the people, and their Lord shall reign for ever.

    9 They that put their trust in Him shall understand the truth: and such as be faithful in love shall abide with him: for grace and mercy is to his saints, and he hath care for his elect.

    10 But the ungodly shall be punished according to their own imaginations, which have neglected the righteous, and forsaken the Lord.

    Also, submission to one another, that is to every believer.

    I'd like to share a short technical point. The word submission in Greek means to be in an orderly relationship.

    What that means is there is not a relationship between two people, but between three, you, me, and the Lord.

    I have to line up with the Lord for a right relationship with you!

    I heard of a man that commanded his wife to go out and commit prostitution so that they could bring in extra money. And the wife was devastated because some of her friends were saying that she had to obey her husband in all things according to the bible.

    In the book of Acts, the disciples said to the ruling Sanhedrin when they said we will not allow you to preach any more in this man's name, and they said whether it's right to obey you rather than God, or God rather than you, you decide. We're going to obey God!

    To be in an orderly relationship means that I can submit and function with my wife, but if she puts me in a position to sin against my Lord and violate His word, if I were to obey that, I would be out of order.

    It's a little confusing but it has to do with lining up with people in the Lord.

    So when it says submitting yourselves to one another, it means line up with one another in the Lord. I think that applies to all believers, husbands and wives included.

    Amen. A three fold cord!
  • SkipVought - in Reply on Genesis 3
    "Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord."Eph 5:21-22

    "Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;"Eph 5:25

    You can't separate these verses!
  • Carleton - in Reply on Genesis 3
    Husbands, one way to love your wives more is to be submissive to the Lord at His gentle promptings. We can be lambs, which helps our wives to be kind too. Happy is the home where the Love of God is first. The world teaches toughness and practicalness, the end effect is shallowness in our love for one another.
