Lesson 2: Adam and Eve in the Garden

Adam and Eve were happy and satisfied in the beautiful garden. They walked and talked with God. He was their friend. God told them, “You may eat fruit from any tree, except one. If you eat from the tree in the middle of the garden, you will die!” Adam and Eve obeyed God.

Now at that time there was an evil spirit called Satan. Previously he was one of God’s angels but he had rebelled against God and as a result had become an evil spirit. Now the devil, called Satan, came in the form of a snake and deceived Eve.

“Did God really tell you not to eat any of this tasty fruit?”, the snake asked. Eve looked at the beautiful fruit on the tree in the middle of the garden.
The snake went on, “Taste a little bit! It will make you wise like God, you will not die.”

She ate the forbidden fruit. Then she took some to Adam, and he tasted it too.
Suddenly, they heard God walking in the garden. They knew they had disobeyed God, so they were afraid. Even though God knew where they were he called out in a loud voice, “Adam, Adam, where are you? Why are you hiding?”
Adam answered, “When I heard You coming I was frightened,”
“Did you eat the fruit I told you not to touch?” God asked.
“The woman gave it to me!” said Adam.
“The snake said it was okay to eat!” said Eve.

God was grieved that they had not obeyed Him. Then God cursed the snake and said, “Snake, you will crawl on your belly forever!”
God told Adam and Eve, “Because you chose to not obey me, you must leave the garden immediately.”
Then He made clothing from animal skins for them to wear and sent them away from the garden.

  2. Why did Adam and Eve have to leave the garden of Eden?
