By Brother Francis Maluf, M.I.C.M.
This commentary of Chapter 3 on Genesis is taken from a course of twenty-six classes.
This is the chapter that covers the Fall and the promise of the Redeemer to come. In this commentary Brother Francis explores many important points that deals with original sin and its punishment. Before understanding the gravity of the offense, Brother points out that Catholics should know what the original state of justice, innocence, and integrity was. What were the tactics the devil used to lure Eve into disobedience? What was the tree of knowledge? What was the tree of life our first parents lost access to? This is a fascinating look at God's cursing of the serpent and what the fathers called the protoevangelium: the "first gospel." Finally, who was the "woman" of Genesis 3:15 who would crush the head of the serpent and why does God use the term "The Woman"?
"I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel." (Genesis 3:15)
