Journal Entry #3: King James Bible Genesis 4

In Genesis 4, Adam and Eve end up having children, Abel and Cain. Abel had a flock of sheep, and Cain was a farmer. When they made their offerings to God, Abel offered his sheep and Cain his fruits. God ended up rejecting Cain’s offering while accepting Abels’. This lead to Cain being jealous of his brother, and it led Cain to kill Abel. In this chapter, the idea of God creating flawed creatures is present again. In addition, selfishness and jealousy becomes present in humanity. A theme that is occurring in both Genesis 3 and 4 is the idea of good vs evil. Abel in this case represents the good due to the fact that he is innocent and obeys god. Cain represents the evil because he ends up murdering his brother over jealousy.
