Jesus, the Son of God, comes into the world thousands of years after God’s first promise to send a Savior. When the first man and woman sin in the garden of Eden, they immediately destroy their connection to God, to one another, and to the created world around them. However, at the same moment that sin enters the world, the great promise of God enters the world, too.
Immediately after Adam and Eve sin, God says to Satan, our enemy (1 Peter 5:8): “I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel” (Genesis 3:15). This verse contains both the “curse,” or the story of humanity’s fall from a state of grace, and God’s great promise to send one who is greater than Satan. The Promised One who is greater than Satan is God’s Son, Jesus. When God sends him into the world and he dies on the cross for our sins, he crushes the power of Satan to destroy our lives.
When the Son of God becomes a “son of man,” born in a humble manger in the obscure town of Bethlehem, he begins the fulfillment of prophecies spanning hundreds of years before his birth. Ultimately, it is through Jesus’ blood and his sacrificial death on the cross that “death has been swallowed up in victory” (1 Corinthians 15:54; Isaiah 25:8), providing for forgiveness of our sins and a way back to God.
