Seed

Perhaps this is the promise that spans the Bible farthest–from Genesis to Revelation. We can trace the promised seed of God all the way back to Genesis where God spoke to the serpent. He promised a descendant from Eve who would bruise the serpent’s head. The promise was passed down through the generations and mentioned in connection with Abraham and King David. Jesus (Yeshua‘) came in fulfillment of the prophecy and Paul noted that fact. In that sense, this is a name of Jesus Christ.
