In studying for my sermon this Sunday on Genesis 2-3, I came across this AMAZING quote from Walter Brueggemann in his commentary on Genesis. It’s good, good, good. However, a bit of a spoiler alert for the sermon Sunday, but I read it and just had to share. Chew on this as you go about your day.
“This is not a simple story of human disobedience and divine displeasure. It is rather a story about the struggle God has in responding to the facts of human life. When the facts warrant death, God insists on life for his creatures.”
