57. Adam and Eve

Why should Eve not have listened to the Serpent?


God talked to Adam.


In what way did he comunicate with Eve?


How would she know to recognize the importance of God.


Finally someone other than Adam talks to her and very correctly points out that God, whoever that is, doesn't want you to eat from the tree of knowledge.

Why wouldn't you want to eat from the tree of knowledge?


How is Eve, in her pristine, innocent way, supposed to know she isn't to trust the serpent?






3:7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.



How would being naked seem shameful to Adam and Eve?


That's the thinking of a religious zealot - the fool writing this passage.
