The Power of a Proper Translation
In 1987 Dr. Joy Fleming researched the Hebrew text of Genesis 3:16. This revealed that most translations are getting it wrong. Is this a problem? Yes! Bad translations lead to bad theology and practice!
In Genesis 3:16, God's words contain NO CURSE ON THE WOMAN. In the very first words to the woman (3:16a) God says she will have Offspring who will crush the serpent (see verse 15), and she will be impacted by the coming curse on the soil - because of the man (see verse 17).
Dr. Joy Fleming (on Genesis 2-3) and Rev. Bruce Fleming (on New Testament passages) have been researching and writing for more than 30 years on three continents.
In 1993, her book "Man and Woman in Biblical Unity - Theology from Genesis 2-3" was first released and distributed by CBE (Christians for Biblical Equality). It sold out! It has since been repurposed and rereleased via Thomas Nelson Publishing's Westbow Press in e-book format.

It is a pleasure to endorse Dr. Joy Fleming’s book entitled Man and Woman in Biblical Unity: Theology from Genesis 2-3. Her work, especially on Genesis 3:16, is to be commended as she identifies two words in this text that serve as linchpins, with one pointing back to the good news of the Promise in Genesis 3:15 and the other pointing to the bad news in Genesis 3:17, where God curses the ground which both the man and the woman will work. This work is a detailed and thorough study of the exegetical and theological implications of the Genesis narrative. I urge Christ’s Church to seriously consider the results of Joy’s study and to buy their own personal copy for a more comprehensive study of this key passage and the texts surrounding it..
