Cain and Abel
Transcript of Cain and Abel
1. Cain - Son of Adam and Eve & a tiller of the ground
2. Abel - Cain's brother & a herder of flocks
Cain and Abel were the first humans to be born the natural way. In the time that they lived: people either worked with plants or animals. The events of this story take place after Adam and Eve had been put out of the garden of Eden.
Cain and Abel both made offerings to God. Abel offered the best from his flock, but Cain deliberately brought average crops as a tribute. God favored Abel's tribute, causing Cain to become jealous and murder his brother. God curses Cain to wander the earth as a fugitive, but marks him to protect him.
Significance of Event
Abraham & Sarah
In the story of Abraham and Sarah, God establishes a covenant with Abraham. He says that Abraham and his wife, Sarah, will be exceedingly fertile, even though they are quite old. God says that he will be the God of all of Abraham's descendants, which is the Hebrew people. This covenant deals solely with the Hebrew people, not with all people.
The story of Cain and Abel deals with two brothers whose relationship is destroyed by jealousy and hatred. Its lesson is that we should always try our best and try not to be jealous of others. Also, God's mercy is visible through his marking Cain so that no one can hurt him.
This story teaches us that jealousy and anger will get us nowhere in our relationships with our friends and family. It also teaches us that we should put our best effort into everything that we do, because those who put in the greatest effort receive the greatest reward.
