The first 11 chapters are God’s introduction of himself to the world and explanation of who we are. In the first two chapters we see that we are made in the image of God, male and female were created by God, and they were created to be different, uniquely filling what the other lacks. Further, we see that marriage is God’s solution for human loneliness. Humans were created for relationship: relationship with God and relationship with others. Today we come to another text where we cannot impose our will or desires over it. The point is not about the serpent or its origins. We are not told why the serpent is doing what it is doing. Genesis 3 is about us and why we are the way we are.
