    The theme for today’s devotional by Dr. David Jeremiah is ”The First Gospel

    SCRIPTURE: And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.-Genesis 3:15

    Theologians and Bible interpreters have long referred to Genesis 3:15 as the protoevangelium—Latin for “first [proto] Gospel [evangelium].” The famous English preacher Charles Simeon called Genesis 3:15 “the sum and summary of the whole Bible.” Why? Because it contains the Good News that Christ, the Seed of the woman, will defeat God’s enemy, Satan.

    The entire Bible is the story of Christ, who would come into the world to pay the price for the sin of Adam and all mankind—to redeem all who would put their trust in Him. When the Jews challenged Jesus and His teachings, He told them, “You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me” (John 5:39). Over and over, the early Christian leaders testified that the Old Testament foretold the coming of Christ (Acts 3:18, 21, 24; 7:52; 10:43; 28:23).

    From ages past, God put in place a plan to forgive and save you. Thank Him today for His Savior and the Book that reveals His plan.

    The New [Testament] is in the Old [Testament] concealed; the Old is by the New revealed.
