Adam and Eve Bible Study Field Trip
Adam and Eve Bible Story in the Bible
Many believe that in The Story of Adam and Eve that Eve was tempted
with an apple when in fact, the Bible doesn't specify what fruit it
was. Then there are more important matters such as that Original sin
derived from the choices made within The Story of Adam and Eve, and
now affects you today. Let us seek and find the truth together in
this The Story of Adam and Eve in the Bible, shall we?
Who Are Adam and Eve Bible Study
Adam and Eve Bible Story Warning
Welcome back to Daily Bread! Today we're going to talk about Adam and
Eve. Most people know that Adam and Eve were the first man and woman
created by God. Adam and Eve made choices that affect us today. As
you recall, from the Creation study, God created man on the sixth day
out of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the
breath of life; and man became a living soul. Note: It doesn't say
anything about a virus that progressed into a fish that eventually
turned into a chameleon that turned into a chimpanzee that turned
into a human which builds skyscrapers and space craft and travels in
space. That's all cute and all but let's be real. Which theory is
really harder to swallow?
Now, God planted a garden in Eden and He put the man called Adam
there. And it was beautiful. Imagine it, pure, the first of
everything that God made in it, so clean and perfect. God told the
man to take care of it. And God said:
16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every
tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
17 But of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, thou
shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou
shalt surely die.
Then God thought it wasn't good for man to be alone, so He made a
help mate for him. God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam and He
took one of his ribs and then closed Adam's flesh. And from that rib,
God made a woman called Eve and brought her to the man. So, a man
shall leave his father and his mother and shall cling to his wife and
they shall be one flesh.
Let's take a second now, for a little insight about the all too well
known serpent. The devil, also known as satan was an angel of God. He
was one of the most beautiful angels in heaven. He became jealous of
God and wants to be God, but he knows that he cannot be all good, so
instead, he is all bad. He competes with God to win people's souls by
trying to get them to do bad things and join him. He will try
anything to get you to do what he wants. He has many faces and many
names. In the story of Adam and Eve, satan goes inside the serpent
and talks to Eve.
Now, the serpent (satan in disguise) was trickier than any other
beast in the garden and he asked Eve if God truly said not to eat
from any tree of the garden. Eve told the serpent that they could eat
of any tree except the tree in the middle of the garden, and
not to even touch it or else they would die. To this, the serpent
replies, You will not die! God knows that the day you eat from
that tree your eyes will be opened, and you'll be like gods, knowing
good and evil and will live forever.
When Eve heard this, she took the fruit from the tree and ate it and
then gave some to Adam. Note that it does not indicate what type of
fruit it was, just that it was from the Tree of knowledge of Good and
evil. That means if Adam and Eve eat from this Tree they will know
the difference between good and evil. It was a trick of satan to have
them and their offspring (us) punishable for sin.
Well, their eyes were opened all right. And they realized that they
were naked, so they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves
coverings. Then they heard God walking in the garden, so they hid
themselves in the trees. And God called to Adam ... Adam shamefully
answered, I heard your voice, and I was afraid because I was naked
and I hid myself.
Who told you that you were naked? God asked. Have you eaten from the
tree that I told you not to eat from? And Adam said, The woman who
you gave to be with me, she gave me fruit from the tree and I ate it.
And God said to Eve, What have you done? And the woman said, The
serpent tricked me and I did eat.
And the Lord said to the serpent, Because you did this, you are
cursed above all beasts of the field, and you will crawl on your
belly from now on and eat dust all your days. I will put hate between
you and the woman and between your offspring and hers, it shall kick
your head and you shall bite his heel.
And the Lord said to the woman, I will make your pain great in
bearing children and your husband shall rule over you. Now, this I'm
sure makes a lot of women want a different interpretation, but
people, there simply is no other way to interpret it. God said the
husband will be above the wife.
And the Lord said to Adam, because you listened to the woman and
disobeyed me, you shall work hard all your days instead of the Earth
producing at will.
Then God said to the Holy
Spirit, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know
good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of
the tree of life he will live for ever: so God sent them out of the
garden of Eden to till the ground that he was made out of. God set
angels with a flaming sword at the east of the garden to protect the
tree of life.
Adam And Eve Bible Study Summary
Adam And Eve Bible Story Conclusion
To sum it all up, this is what is known as the "original sin."
Mankind, all being descendants of Adam and Eve have inherited it. As
for satan, he is still at it, trying to deceive mankind in his
tireless contest against God. Be wise to his craftiness and say no.
Take care and be sure to look for the next study of the Bible ...
Abel And Cain.
