There are six revolutionary and foundational truths in Genesis 2–3. Today we see the fifth.
These truths help you understand God, Scripture, society, culture, and yourself like never before. The one we see today is absolutely critical for understanding why God appears so violent at various places in the Bible.
If you have ever wondered how to understand the violence of God in the Bible, make sure you listen to this episode.
The Text of Genesis 3:11-13
And He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?”
Then the man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate.”
And the LORD God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”
In this discussion of Genesis 3:11-13 we look at:
- The fifth foundational and revolutionary truth from Genesis 2–3
