Text Sample

protoevangelium. The first, or earliest, declaration of the gospel (Gk protos , "first," + euangelion, "gospel") in Genesis 3:15, where God rebukes the serpent by predicting that Eve's offspring will crush the devil's offspring. Since the second century this verse has traditionally been seen as the first glimmer of the gospel that God's purpose in creation will be fulfilled in spite of the fall of humanity.
