Genesis 4 opens with Adam and Eve fulfilling God’s command to be fruitful and multiply.
- Eve may think that Cain is the promised Messiah that will bruise the serpent’s head. She soon finds out that her messiah child picked up the sin trait.
- Cain and Abel begin the pattern of 2 sons - one chosen by the world, the other chosen by God. Bottom line - God is sovereign and He alone will determine how the Messiah will come about.
- There are two camps of thought when it comes to the Abel preference.
