30 Days for New Christians Day 1


1 The Fall of Humanity Genesis 3:1–19

B1 Passage: Genesis 3:1-19 GNB

C1 Snake = literally so, but the snake was only outward, the control of the snake was the devil, who is called the snake (Revelation 20:21 and 2 Corinthians 11:3). Compare John 8:44, 1 John 3:8, and 1 Timothy 2:14.

C2 Subtle = a lie said indirectly and innocently.

C3 Saw (verse 6) = lust of the eyes and her justifying reasons for eating the fruit.

C4 He also ate (verse 6) = Adam. Adam was not deceived. I guess but cannot prove that since he did not see God, he thought he could get away with eating the fruit. His sin was a lack of faith, that is, he did not believe God. His sin, not Eve’s, was the cause for the universe being cursed. The universe had been pronounced as good (without flaw). Adam’s sin turned the flawless universe into a flawed universe. See Romans 5:12.

C5 Fig leaves sewn together (verse 7) = attempt to cover shame. See Proverbs 11:2, Isaiah 28:16 with Romans 10:11.

C6 Lord God (verse 8) = Jesus Christ. See John 14:23, 2 Corinthians 5:18-19, and 1 John 1:3.

C7 The woman (verse 12) = Adam is blame-shifting his sin unto Eve and further on to God. He does not confess his sin. Eve was honest and told God she was deceived. Adam received the greater punishment. Compare Exodus 20:16, Proverbs 14:5, Psalm 32:5, and 1 John 1:9.

C8 Her offspring and yours (verse 15) = the first promise of the coming Messiah. Adam did not get any good promises just curses. The Messiah was to be born of the woman, that is, no man was involved in procreation. See Galatians 4:4, Matthew 1:18 and 23.

C9 Subject (verse 16) = actually the word is desire. In my opinion, Eve would have been very angry with Adam. The world was cursed, and she was going to have labor pains. Because of this, I’m sure she wanted nothing to do with Adam. There would be no pregnancy. But God reminded Eve that she was still to physically and sexually desire Adam. Compare Song 7:10. The word is also used in Genesis 4:7. The desire mentioned there would be understood the intensity of this desire just like the intense desire of Song 7:10. The word rule here would be understood that Adam still had some authority in this life.

B2 Questions

C1 Was there anything about the serpent’s question that could have alerted Eve to the danger about to take place?

C2 Was the serpent telling the truth when he said, “That's not true; you will not die. God said that because he knows that when you eat it, you will be like God and know what is good and what is bad.”

D1 Would Eve have known what “evil” meant?

D2 Would you and I have been aware of the danger?

D3 How can we prevent falling into this lie?

E1 Knowing the truth

E2 Believing God

E3 Being skeptical

E4 Life is through what God says not anyone or anything else. Luke 4:4 WEB Jesus answered him, saying, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.’”

D4 Is it wrong to become wise?

D5 What did Eve do wrong to acquire wisdom?

C3 Why was the Lord God walking in the garden? (See 1 John 1:3 WEB that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us. Yes, and our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son, Jesus Christ).

C4 Why did Adam and Eve hide?

C5 Why did Adam blame Eve and then God for his sin?

C6 Why was the curse placed on the production of produce?
