The Fall of Man
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Main article: Fall of Man
The Serpent, “slyer than every beast of the field,” tempts the woman to eat from the Tree of Knowledge, telling her that it will make her more like God, and that it will not lead to death. After some thought, the woman decides to take from the tree and eat it. She then gives the fruit to the man, who eats also, “and the eyes of the two of them were opened.” Aware now of their nakedness, they make coverings of fig leaves, and hide from the sight of God. God asks them what they have done, and man and woman defer responsibility. The man blames the woman for giving him the fruit, but implies a sentiment that God is also at fault for making the woman in the first place (“The woman Thou gavest to be with me, she gave me the fruit of the tree, and I ate”), while the woman blames the serpent for seducing her to disobedience (“The serpent beguiled me and I ate”). God curses the serpent “above all animals,” making it lick dust and go on its belly all its days and to be an enemy of the human race. God then passes judgment for the disobedience of the man and woman, condemning the man to a life of toil and the woman to create new life through painful childbirth, and banishes them from the Garden. The woman is given the name Eve (Heb. hawwah) “because she was the mother of all living [Heb. hay],” and Adam receives his name when the text drops the definite article from the word for “the man,” changing “ha-adam” to “Adam”. Eve/woman is also established as subordinate to Adam/man, ending the unity between the sexes. God then posts two cherubim, with flaming swords, at the entrance to the Garden of Eden in order to block the way to the Tree of Life, “lest he put out his hand .. and eat, and live forever.”

    Interesting topic. I think that the ending of unity between the sexes is the greatest curse that this story has created in us. However like with anything in history we as living individuals have a choice to accept our history or decide how we really want to live and do all we can to create this.

  • ABSOLUTE AGREEMENT!! SO GLAD YOU CAUGHT THE IRONY IN THIS WORK AND TITLE!!
    THANX SO KINDLY FOR YOUR EXPRESSION!!
