Can the hope of Christmas be found in the garden of Eden? Adam and Eve enjoyed perfect relationship with God until they doubted His goodness and pushed beyond the boundaries of His plan. God, however, did not abandon them to their sin’s consequences. As Alistair Begg explains, within the context of Adam and Eve’s rebellion we receive the promise of a cure: the one who would crush the serpent’s head. We rejoice in Jesus’ birth as the fulfillment of God’s promise.
15I will put enmity between you and the woman,
and between your offspring5 and her offspring;
he shall bruise your head,
and you shall bruise his heel.”
