Although in the text of Genesis 3:17 it appears as a divine action, that is, God cursing the earth, the curse is actually the consequence of the agitation in Creation caused by the rupture of divine instruction.
The first treatise is not a writing parallel to the other Gospels, despite the parity of the accounts between them, because unlike the others it was not written in order to leave testimony of the acts of Jesus but to validate the truth of the things in which they were both taught, the writer and the recipient, by those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word.
