Cain and Abel

Cain and Abel is one of the most known stories in the Bible. In this video we look at how it relates to left hand-right hand symbolism, but I also want to look at how there’s a reflection of the story in a few pagan myths. Hopefully this will show how looking at other stories and myths from other cultures can give us hints about some of the Biblical structures.
