Outside the Garden

Outside the Garden

Genesis 4:8 Now Cain talked with Abel his brother; and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother and killed him.

Here we find that the first born of Adam and Eve, (after being cast out of the garden), Cain, becomes a murderer as he slays his brother, the 2nd born of Eve, Able. The fall began in the garden with disobedience and the wickedness continues outside the garden. Cain, the 1st born also does something else, he lies to God when asked where his brother is and he says, I do not know. Of course he knew where his brothers’ body lay and why. Genesis 4:16-17 Cain went out from the presence of the Lord and dwelt in the land of Nod on the east of Eden.  And Cain knew his wife, and she conceived and bore Enoch. And he built a city, and called the name of the city after the name of his son—Enoch. Wait, where did this woman come from in the land of Nod? Could she have been one of the other children of Eve before being cast out of the garden and were all the children of that couple cast out because of Adam and Eves disobedience?

Again, to be continued …..
