The Temptation

  • The Tempter. The woman was approached by the serpent, Devil (Genesis 3:1; Revelation 12:9; Revelation 20:2).

  • Means. He approached her by speaking in her own language and by falsely interpreting the law of God (Genesis 3:1-5; John 8:44).

  • Points Tempted. The woman was tempted in
    • the lust of the flesh,
    • the lust of the eye,
    • and the pride of life (Genesis 3:1-6; 1 John 2:16).

  • Results. The woman was deceived (2 Corinthians 11:3); the man was not (1 Timothy 2:13-15), but the eating of the fruit brought the speedy sentence of death (Genesis 2:16,17; Romans 5:12-19). All the guilty parties were involved in the results.

  • General Results.
    • The serpent was doomed to disgrace and destruction;
    • the woman was doomed to sorrow in child-bearing and subserviency to her husband;
    • and the man was doomed to sorrow, disappointment, and hard labor (Genesis 3:14-19).

  • Remote Results. Man's will power was doubtless weakened by transgression, but he still had the power to partake of the tree and life and live forever (Genesis 3:22-24). His memory was doubtless weakened by sin, but he remembered all the circumstances of the temptation and Transgression (Genesis 3:1-13). His reason was doubtless weakened by disobedience, but he was able to attempt to shift the responsibility from his shoulders when confronted with the results of his crime (Genesis 3:12,13).

  • Causes of Sin and Death. Sin, death, and their terrible consequences were brought about by
    • hearing,
    • believing,
    • and yielding to a lie.
