“The Fall”? “The Curse”? What Does The Bible Really Say? A “Curse”? A “Fall”?


Edward O’Hara Why is it that we hear so many using such hyperbole? Is it hyperbole? Or is it Biblical language? Is this language found anywhere in the Bible from which we may conclude anything like this? When we read the Genesis account do we ever see God using this language? Do we see God using “The curse” or “The fall” in connection to what happened to Adam and Eve? Does God say Adam and Eve were cursed? Or that they “fell” from anything?

Does this mean that the covenant that God made with Israel through Moses ended with John the Baptist?  But, is that possible? Because doesn’t Heb.9:15-10:9 show that the Old Testament continued for Israel until Christ’s death? And that it was only by the death of Christ the Old Testament ended because that’s when the New Testament came to power? If so, and the scriptures are pretty clear that it is, then what did Jesus mean with His follow up statement when He said: “Since that time the kingdom of God is preached”?
