Did You Know?*
By Gregory Eckrich
Did you know that without the Old Testament and without Genesis in particular, Jesus is unnecessary? It's true.
Why did Jesus come to earth? To save us from our sins.
Genesis 3:1-7 details the entrance of sin into the world. Eve was deceived. Both denied God's command in Genesis 2:16-17 not to eat fruit from the Tree of Wisdom.
If this sin did not occur in the physical world why would it be necessary for a physical Jesus to come?
God tells us in the first book of the Bible, in Genesis 3:15, that Satan would be punished (head crushed) by the seed of the woman.
Conclusion: no physical Garden of Eden, and no original sin then no need for Jesus. Yet, Jesus did come! AMEN.
And now you know.
