Who Is Cain?

Cain has become the center of many conspiracy theories of the Bible. The biggest probably being his origin. Where did Cain come from? Now, this may seem like an easy question to many people, but many believe that Cain’s origins may have been a bit more interesting than just Adam and Eve. Many believe that Cain is the offspring of the Serpent and Eve. But is that true? Is Cain the son of the Serpent? Join Reverend Kenny Yates as he investigates these claims of the Biblical origins of Cain in his video, Who Is Cain?

Who Is Cain?

The Genesis Account of the Origins of Cain

1 Now Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived and bore Cain, saying, “I have gotten a man with the help of the Lord.”

Genesis 4:1

John’s Possible Account of the Origins of Cain

12 We should not be like Cain, who was of the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own deeds were evil and his brother’s righteous.

1 John 3:12

Jesus’ Possible Account of the Descendants of Cain

39 They answered Him, “Abraham is our father.” Jesus said to them, “If you were Abraham’s children, you would be doing the works Abraham did, 40 but now you seek to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. This is not what Abraham did. 41 You are doing the works your father did.” They said to Him, “We were not born of sexual immorality. We have one Father—even God.”

42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and I am here. I came not of my own accord, but he sent me. 43 Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word.

44 You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 But because I tell the truth, you do not believe me. 46 Which one of you convicts me of sin? If I tell the truth, why do you not believe me? 47 Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God.”

John 8:39-47


Cain is not the physical son of the Serpent, the Devil, but the Spiritual son of the Devil. Just like we are not the physical children of God or Abraham, but we are Spiritual children of God and the Spiritual children of Abraham. Those who sin, are children of the Devil, but those who walk in the ways of righteousness are the children of God.
