Have you ever wondered why Cain brought an offering of fruit to God in Genesis 4? Have you wondered what was wrong with Cain’s offering so that God did not accept it?
In Episode 53 of the One Verse Podcast, we look at Genesis 4:1-3 for answers to these questions.
The Text of Genesis 4:1-3
Now Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived and bore Cain, and said, “I have acquired a man from the Lord.” Then she bore again, this time his brother Abel. Now Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. And in the process of time it came to pass that Cain brought an offering of the fruit of the ground to the Lord.
In this discussion of Genesis 4:1-3 we look at:
- The birth of Cain and Abel shows that Adam and Eve were still serving as the Image of God
- The story that Cain and Abel grew up hearing
- The reason Cain brought an offering of fruit to God
