John Calvin on Genesis 3:15

“Wherefore, that God might revive the fainting minds of men, and restore them when oppressed by despair, it became necessary to promise them, in their posterity, victory over Satan, through whose wiles they had been ruined. This, then, was the only salutary medicine which could recover the lost and restore life to the dead.” (Commentary on Gen 3)
