Genesis 3:15 -“Pro-Evangel” the first Gospel
“And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her Seed;
He shall bruise your head,
And you shall bruise His heel.” – Genesis 3:15
At first glance at this verse would merely seem to predict the natural hatred of man for snake. But for centuries devout Bible students have seen far more precious and profound truth underlying these words. For in this verse is a thrilling prediction of the Cross and the resurrection, of the Savior’s great over Satan. Theologically, then, verse 15 may be translated as followed:
“And there will be intense hatred between Satan and Christ. Eventually Christ will crush the head of Satan, while suffering wounds in the process.”
This all-important verse is known as the “Pro-Evangel,” the first Gospel.
“And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.” – Romans 16:20
“But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.” – Isaiah 53:5
