Is it not like our God to make one of the lowest points in human history chalk-full of Gospel! vs 20 : Adam names the woman Eve--i.e. the life-giver, because she is the mother of all living. This is Gospel because it points us right back to the curse on the snake that held out hope of redemption for humanity (3:15). vs 21 : The first death is reported--an animal to make clothing for Adam and Eve. It was their death that was deserved by their disobedience (2:17), but another life was taken in the design of God. This is Gospel foreshadowing! vs 22-24 : Yes, the angels are put there to keep Adam and Eve from the Tree of Life. But did you notice that there is still hope of life eternal? If one could reach the Tree of Life then (from God's own lips) they would live forever (3:22). This too is Gospel hope , not explaining how humanity will ever get back to that tree, and yet hinting that the possibility remains. And now we know that it is not just possibility! The Seed of the mother of all living has come; he Himself has been sacrificed to clothe our shame; and as a result the tree of Life is once again available to us through faith in his name! Jesus -- the only name by which men must be saved!
