THE HEBREW SCRIPTURES

And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel. (Genesis 3:15)

THE RABBINIC WRITINGS

And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between the seed of thy sons, and between the seed of her sons; and it shall be when the sons of the woman keep the commandments of the Law, they will be prepared to smite thee on thy head; but if they forsake the commandments of the Law, thou wilt be prepared to wound them in the heel. Nevertheless for them there shall be a medicine; and they shall make a remedy for the heel in the days of the King Meshiha. (Jerusalem Targum.)

As the incarnation of evil Satan is the arch-enemy of the Messiah he is anti-Christ. The light which was created before the world, was hidden by God beneath His throne; and to the question of Satan in regard to it God answered: "This light is kept for him who shall bring thee to shame." At his request God showed Satan the Messiah; and when he saw him, he trembled. fell upon his face, and cried: "Verily this is the Messiah, who shall hurl (bruise) me, and all the princes of the angels of the people" down even into hell. (Pesikta Rabbati. 3:6. ed. Friedmann, p. 161, b.)

THE NEW TESTAMENT

But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law. (Galatians 4:4)

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 1:18)

And the angel answered and said to her, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God. (Luke 1:35)
