Prophecies of the Messiah – The Seed of a Woman

Prophecies of the Messiah – The Seed of a Woman

The Hebrew Scriptures
And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel. (Genesis 3:15)

The New Testament
But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law. (Galatians 4:4)

Now the birth of Jesus the Messiah was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 1:18)

For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. (1 John 3:8)

Quotations and Comments
The words quoted from the very beginning of Genesis were addressed to the one who had tempted our first parents to disobey God. He had led them into disobedience, and God’s response was a promise to break this bond of rebellion between our first parents and the tempter, and to destroy the tempter. God could have started again, so to speak, but His determination was that humankind would learn to love and obey Him, shown by the promise of a special offspring (seed) of the woman who would destroy the tempter. Humans had fallen, and by a fellow human they would be delivered – but obviously a very special one. Yeshua (Jesus) was truly human; his specialness was not because he was some sort of spirit being who appeared human. He was truly one like us
