Messianic Prophecies: Seed of the Woman
Genesis 3:15 - "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 Bible Prophecy about the Messiah Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Jesus was the Seed of the Woman Gal 4:4 But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, Rom 16:19-20 And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. Key Points: - This was the curse upon the serpent. - This was the first clear prophecy of a coming redeemer. - The use of "He" reveals that one person is meant. - The word "seed" speaks of offspring or descendant. - Only one descendant of Eve was born of a woman and not a man. - The word "enmity" speaks of warfare. - Satanís seed is fallen man. - Bruising the head speaks of crushing oneís authority. - Christís heal was bruised when He was crucified. - Satanís head was crushed when Jesus was crucified. - Ancient Rabbinic Judaism regarded this passage as Messianic (Targum Pseudo-Jonathan and the so-called Jerusalem Targum. - Targum Pseudo-Jonathan: "And it shall be that when the sons of the woman study the Torah diligently and obey its injunctions, they will direct themselves to smite you on the head and slay you; but when the sons of the woman forsake the commandments of the Torah and do not obey its injunctions, you will direct yourself to bite them on the heel and afflict them. However, there will be a remedy for the sons of the woman, but for you, serpent, there will be no remedy. They shall make peace with one another in the end, in the very end of days, in the days of the King Messiah."
