Notice this line goes all the way back to Adam and Eve showing Jesus’ relationship to the whole human race; the son of God, the son of Adam. This shows the important role of Mary(his blood relative) in Jesus’ bloodline. Also shows the prophecy of the promised seed = Jesus.

The Promised Seed
Genesis 3:15 NASB
15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, and you shall bruise him on the heel.

  • This promise is addressed to the serpent as judgement: v14
  • This promise has hope for mankind(the seed)
  • This is also a prophecy of hostility and struggle between the serpent’s seed and the woman’s seed
  • The woman’s seed anticipates the virgin birth

 

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God -Rom 3:23
 
Therefore, just as through one man{Adam} sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned— Rom 5:12
 
For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. -Rom 5:17
