Adam and Eve

According to Genesis, the first book of the Bible, God created the first humans on the sixth day. In Hebrew, Adam means ‘man’ or ‘mankind’. God gave Adam Paradise, the Garden of Eden, to care for but warned him not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. To keep him company, God fashioned a woman from one of Adam’s ribs. A serpent – Evil – persuaded her to eat the forbidden fruit. She then tempted Adam to take a bite, and the first sin, the Fall of Man, was committed. As punishment, an angel drove them out of paradise and they lost their immortality. Adam had to toil for his daily bread, and the woman had to bear children and was thus called Eve, ‘mother of the living.’ The only hope of redeeming the original sin was the birth of Christ. Through his crucifixion, Christ assumed responsibility for all human sin.
