This entry does not seem at all convincing.

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." This prophesy was fulfilled in the person of Jesus Christ, who was born of woman ("her seed"), endured suffering under sinful men ("thou shalt bruise his heel") but vanquished the serpent once and for all though his victory at the cross ("it shall bruise thy head").

On what grounds is Jesus Christ identified as "her seed"? It seems to me that any man born of woman could be so identified.

"thou shalt bruise his heel" being identified as suffering under sinful men is obscure and tangential even by a charitable interpretation.

"it shall bruise thy head" identified as vanquishing the serpent once and for all through His victory at the cross is totally without substance. If it were true that all evil had been vanquished since the crucifixion, then it might conceivably be arguable; however, even then bruising a head is not a threat of vanquishment.

I am unclear as to what this entry is attempting to do, but whatever it is, it needs attention--AvengingAngel 18:05, 15 May 2007 (EDT)
