Eve and the forbidden fruit
Adam and Eve , according to the creation myth of the Abrahamic religions ,   were the first man and woman. They are central to the belief that humanity is in essence a single family, with everyone descended from a single pair of original ancestors. In the Book of Genesis of the Hebrew Bible , chapters one through five, there are two creation narratives with two distinct perspectives. In the first, Adam and Eve are not named. Instead, God created humankind in God's image and instructed them to multiply and to be stewards over everything else that God had made.
For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil. He noticed that they had eaten the fruit of the tree of knowledge, and turned them out of Paradise. By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread , till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust and to dust you shall return. In Latin, evil is malum and an apple is called malus. This could have been either a simple mistranslation or a deliberate play on the these words.
Adam and Eve lived in the Garden of Eden. God and Jesus came and talked to them.
Adam and Eve were told they could eat anything they wanted — except the fruit from that tree. If they did, God told them they would die. Eve had been created just for Adam, a helpmate suited for him. The fall was inevitable. Eve picked the forbidden fruit and ate it. Adam was with her and he ate it, too. Their eyes were opened and their innocence, lost.
An apple, right? An apple, maybe. Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made loincloths for themselves. The text of the temptation in the Garden of Eden is rich with meaning. First, the garden was full of fruit bearing trees, all of which Adam and Eve could eat. Before they sinned, Adam and Eve walked and talked honestly with God. All four were sinless.
Forbidden fruit is a phrase that originates from the Book of Genesis concerning the original sin by Adam and Eve in Genesis — In the narrative, Adam and Eve eat the fruit of knowledge of good and evil in the Garden of Eden , which they had been commanded not to do by God. As a metaphor, the phrase typically refers to any indulgence or pleasure that is considered illegal or immoral. The narrative of the Book of Genesis places the first man and woman Adam and Eve in a garden where they may eat the fruit of many trees but are forbidden by God to eat from the "tree of knowledge of good and evil". And Jehovah God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
