136 - ADDITION EXAMPLE 1: EXPLANATION of this addition - The difference to the biblical teaching on Adam

What a huge difference this is to what the Bible reveals about the Devil, who appeared in the form of a snake to Adam and Eve according to the Bible! In Genesis 3:15 we read, “I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring: he shall trample upon your head, and you shall bruise his heel.” Here it is not the snake or the Devil that is making any revelations (as is the case in the Koran), but it is the LORD God himself, who is determining the matter once and for all. This is the first prophecy in the Bible about the victory over Satan, which Christ accomplished on the cross and in his resurrection. Christ, in dying for our sins, took away all legal authority from Satan. And in his resurrection from the dead, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ took away all power for Satan to harm us humans in a lasting way, because Christ swallowed up death in his resurrection. If we believe in Christ, then sin and the devil have no power over us, because death as their fruit has been conquered. Paul describes it this way: “Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!” (1 Corinthians 15:54-57)
