Genesis 3

Everett's Study Notes on the Holy ScripturesEverett's Study Notes

Verses 1-24

The Entrance of Sin into God’s Creation - Since God’s divine destiny for His creation would be fulfilled in the creation of mankind, emphasis is, therefore, given to their creation. However, two sinful events hindered God’s plan, which are the Fall in the Garden (Genesis 3:1-24), and the murder of Abel by Cain his brother (Genesis 4:1-24). The fall of Adam and Eve brought God’s creation into mortality and its subsequent vanity. Although Adam and Eve repented of their sins and produced a righteous offspring, they did bring all of creation into corruption and vanity. The murder of Abel caused sin to take root into humanity; for Cain was unrepentant of his sin and produced unrighteous offspring that sowed unrighteousness into the earth. Now we have two types of men living upon the earth, those who are righteous and those unrighteous before God.

Outline Here is a proposed outline:

1. The Fall of Adam & Eve Genesis 3:1-24

2. Cain and Abel Genesis 4:1-26
