For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: What became of Cain?

Now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. 12 When you cultivate the ground, it will no longer yield its strength to you; you will be a wanderer and a drifter on the earth.” (Genesis 4:11-12)

He settled down, married, had a son, and built a city.
