* beginning of the fallen and ruined condition of present humanity.
* crafty devises of the enemy…the devil!
* powerlessness of Man to walk in the path of righteousness when divine grace is withheld from him (J. Vernon McGee - ‘Thru the Bible’)
* cover up of moral shame
POINT ONE…. “WHO WAS THE ‘SERPENT’?”
Therefore, “the devil, or Satan”, is later referred to as “that ancient serpent” in Rev 12:9; 20:2. He insinuated a falsehood and portrayed rebellion as clever, but essentially innocent, self-interest. (NIV Bible footnotes)
READ Job 1:7… What had satan been doing? ___
Serpent’… The Hebrew word is… nachash, meaning “snake”
Was the serpent a snake as we know a snake from the beginning or after his job was done and God cursed it? ____
READ Genesis 3:14. How did God curse the serpent? ____
We typically understand the serpent (nachash) in the resemblance of a snake; but this creature was not the slithering snake as we know of it today. In the Genesis account of the serpent will later be condemned to crawling on its belly, an obvious reference to the life-style of a physical snake. We will be covering more of this later on in the study.
The use of ‘crafty’ not only means cunning
and deceitful, etc., but it also suggest that it was clever and skillful and
with much wisdom; used in a negative and evil way no less! Nothing short of
being satan himself!

“THE TREE of KNOWLEDGE of GOOD and EVIL”
Our God is a God Who knows all. He knew what Adam and Eve were going to do, just as He knows what we are going to do, react and become before it happens.
