The Genesis of Christmas

Ligon Duncan on Genesis 3:1–19

“In the declaration that God is setting enmity between the serpent and the women, we see in kernel the emphasis on the sovereignty of God in salvation. He does not turn to us and say, ‘Save yourselves,’ or ‘Here’s a little grace, now save yourselves.’ He says, ‘I’m going to war for you. I’m going to war against the serpent.’” — Ligon Duncan
