Ge­n­e­sis 3 con­fu­sion

The Church of England - - LETTERS -

Sir, I apol­o­gise for con­fus­ing Malachy Corn­well-Kelly (and per­haps oth­ers) with a typo in my ar­ti­cle Re­think­ing Adam and Eve To­day (CEN, 23 De­cem­ber, 2012).

When I wrote that Ge­n­e­sis 3 “con­tains the proto-gospel” I should, of course, have ref­er­enced this with 3:15 NOT 3:16. The lat­ter is, in­deed, the pun­ish­ment for sin, though to un­der­stand what it means I would highly rec­om­mend Susah Foh’s ar­ti­cle, avail­able on­line, ‘What is the Woman’s De­sire?’.

Well done to Malachy for spot­ting it! How­ever, I am not sure I un­der­stand the ref­er­ence to Gal 3:28 as a ‘get out of jail card’. The Rev John Richard­son, Via email
