Since man's first disobedience in the garden of Eden the prophecies about a coming Redeemer had been given. One would come who would finally be of the seed of a woman and who would crush the serpents head (Genesis 3:15). Quite simply, that is what the Bible is all about. It is the unfolding of God's plan to send a Savior. All of the events in the Scriptures have their ultimate meaning in their preparation of people to expect God's salvation and to be ready when it finally came.
