The Garden of Eden

According to the Bible, God created the heavens and the Earth. Then He made the Garden of Eden, a lush paradise with flowers, trees, grass, bushes and other plants, and friendly animals.

God also created the first man, who was called Adam. Later, God took one of Adam’s ribs and created Eve, the first woman.

Adam and Eve lived in the Garden of Eden and tended it. This contained beautiful fruit-bearing trees, including the Tree of Life and the Tree of Good and Evil.


God allowed them to eat fruits from any tree in the garden — except from the Tree of Good and Evil. Adam and Eve obeyed God. And they lived a happy, everlasting life.

One day….

One day, a serpent (large snake) came to Eve. It started to speak to her. They had a conversation. Then the serpent told Eve to eat the fruits from the Tree of Good and Evil.

“Go ahead. Eat the fruit, Eve. It’s very sweet and delicious. It’s very good for you,” said the serpent.
“But God told us not to eat any fruits from that tree,” said Eve.
“Oh, don’t worry. It’s no problem. It’s perfectly alright. Go and eat the fruits,” said the serpent.

And so Eve ate some of the fruits.


Later she gave some fruits from the Tree of Good and Evil to Adam. At first he refused . . . but she persuaded him to eat the fruits.

And so he did.

But now they had disobeyed God.


As a result, God punished Adam and Eve by turning them into mortals. He exiled them from the Garden of Eden. God also punished the serpent by making it legless.


Outside of Eden, Adam and Eve had a hard life. They had to work very hard to make a living. And they had many children who became the ancestors of the people of the world.
