Introduction


Genesis 3 describes how temptation was introduced into the world, through Satan.  How humans fell into sin and how people and the world has been affected in some way as a consequence.  Relationships had been broken (Gen
3:16-24):

  • broken relations between people and God;
  • broken relations between one another; and
  • broken relations between people and the natural world, the environment. 

All creation is suffering from the consequences of sin: however, hope in the form of a promise of redemption from God came immediately after the fall:

 

And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.  (Genesis 3:15)
