The first comparison of the Trinitarian series.
So, the LORD God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this,
“Cursed are you above all livestock
and all wild animals!
You will crawl on your belly
and you will eat dust
all the days of your life.
And I will put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and hers;
he will crush your head,
and you will strike his heel.” (Genesis 3:14-15)
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:14-15)
In Genesis, Satan (the Serpent) was humbled and cursed in the Garden of Eden for deceiving Adam and Eve into eating of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, but that same chapter and verse in John shows Christ comparing Himself to Moses’s serpent being lifted up in the wilderness, thus becoming the Tree of Life.
