This promise came at a cost, with the serpent symbolizing both Satan and the evil choices plaguing humanity. God pledged a hero to defeat the serpent, though this victory would come with wounds. Our longing for this promised hero intensifies as we journey through the Bible. In a moment of quiet beneath the stars, God made a covenant with Abraham, affirming that this Hero would emerge from his lineage—a pivotal part of the salvation story.
