Original Sin and Messianic Prophecy

Recently at church there was a big discussion about why Genesis 3:15 is a messianic prophecy. In simple layman’s terms (since I am a layman) I will try to explain this.

And I will put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring[a] and hers;
he will crush[b] your head,
and you will strike his heel.”

Genesis 3:15 NIV
