Genesis 3:1-3:24 – Discourse and Dialogue

Discourse and Dialogue

  • Dialogue 1 – Serpent and Woman
    • The first and last word is given by the Serpent. It has control over the conversation.  The Woman’s protest is not strong enough to take control of the conversation.
    • Serpent’s words attempt to introduce hostility between God and Woman.
  • Dialogue 2 – God questioning the Man and Woman
    • God is on the offensive in questioning. Man and Woman are defensive.
  • Dialogue 3 – God punishing and/or cursing all three.
    • More or less a discourse. Man and Woman present no response to God’s judgments.
  • Dialogue 4 – God determining to expel Man
