Abstract: This paper rereads Genesis 3:8-20 by looking deeper at the different characters of the story - the man, the woman and the serpent - and their role in the unfolding of the narrative. Its closer reading of the "curse"/consequences to the man, the woman and the serpent yielded a "bite size" amount of blessing in contrast with the traditional "fall" and "arur" story. The result of the investigation challenges the reader/believer to reimage women, the whole of creation, and even God.
