Kidner On the Fall and Redemption

In a portion of my studies today I ran across this quotation in an Old Testament Survey book (by LaSor, Hubbard, and Bush [1982]). On page 81, they referred to Derek Kidner’s commentary on Genesis, writing these words:

So simple the act: “she took . . . and she ate”;
So drastic the results: humanity has lost the state of innocence forever;
So hard the undoing: God himself will taste poverty and death before “take and eat” become verbs of salvation.

I thought they would be sweet for your contemplation today on the work of Christ and his undoing of the effects of the Fall. Praise him!
