If I were to ask you when the first sin in the Bible occurs, you might point to Genesis 2 when Adam and Eve eat from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Yet did you know that their actions in Genesis 2 are not referred to as “sin”?
Sin is not actually mentioned until Genesis 4:7, which is one of the verses we look at in this study.
The Text of Genesis 4:6-7
So the Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen? If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it.”
In this discussion of Genesis 4:6-7 we look at:
