This podcast episode provides the normal explanation of Genesis 3.
There is nothing really wrong with this traditional explanation of Genesis 3. When I was a pastor I preached through Genesis, and I went back and looked at my sermon notes on Genesis 3, and what I am going to share with you today is what I would have preached 20 years ago from Genesis 3.
But now I believe there are many more significant truth from Genesis 3 that we miss. I will point those out in future podcast episodes.
In this discussion of Genesis 3 we look at:
- The normal explanation of Genesis 3
- The identity of the Serpent
- How Eve added to the law of God
- The consequences of eating from the Forbidden Tree
- The Lust of the Flesh (Luke 4:1-4)
- The Lust of the Eyes and the Pride of Life (Luke 4:5-13)

Did God create Adam and Eve with the seven senses?
How was Eve able to see the forbidden fruit on the tree in the midst of the garden of Eden when her eye’s were not yet open?
Genesis 3: 6When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate. 7Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings. 8They heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.”
