Why does evil exist? Why is there so much conflict in the world? How will God fix all this injustice?
Just one chapter in the Bible—Genesis 3—has the answers. It’s a familiar part of Scripture, featuring the drama of a cosmic rebellion, divine curses, and the separation of man from God. So it might not immediately seem to be a passage offering much hope.
But Genesis 3 actually has more to say about God’s character, compassion, and grace than it does about our problems. And John MacArthur shows that’s because you can’t understand how good the good news really is, unless you first understand how bad the bad news is. Study with him the Genesis of the Gospel to find the answers not only to those big cosmic questions, but also to discover the extraordinary privileges God has given women, what strong male leadership looks like, and how that all ties in to God’s ultimate triumph over the tragedies that began in the garden.
