More specifically, from the biblical story, Eve’s humanlike curiosity brings her to receiving and consuming the apple from the tree of knowledge of good and evil from the Serpent, which was initially forbidden by god. By doing this she conducted the sin of disobedience or what is called the Original sin in Christianity, which led to their expulsion from Eden. There is a number of significant symbolic iconography hidden within this image. Firstly, a devious serpent in the garden often times depicted slithering around a tree represents Eve's temptation in the Garden of Eden. The tree, pomegranate of apple suggests the temptation of eve and the fall of man.
“In The Beginning” tells the readers about Eve falling for temptation. “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” (Line 1). Eve was tricked
In the Garden of Gethsemane Jesus Christ suffered harsh death, atoning for the people’s sins. The burden of the sins was bravely felt by Jesus, who did not step back from taking the ownership of atoning all sins.As written in What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice his life?, ” The Savior tells us:” For behold, I… have suffered these things for all, that they might not suffer… even as I.”(Doctrine and Covenants 19:16-17)”.Atonement symbolizes a new thought process and a change in priorities about the truth, and turns one’s soul to God. Through the ultimate power of atonement, one wishes for goodness to give rise to a change in heart, a desire to quit evil and turn good. The reason for god not forgiving one for a sin without atonement is that god’s character of perfection is paradoxical.
And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, She gave me of the tree, ( Genesis III. 8-12) Adam is indeed at fault and instead of simply accepting the blame he attempts to push it off on God himself, saying that He gave Adam the woman that fed him the fruit. Here Adam is doing anything he can to maintain his good standing with his Lord, even if it means throwing Eve under the proverbial bus. In all, evil should be gauged by the darkness of the heart because the intentions are not always as simple as the consequence of the evil action. The ultimate consequence given for an evil action cannot be simply determined by the physical outcome of the sin, but has to take into account the intent of the sinner.
Yet, creation failed him, he felt disappointed that he repented from creating us when he decided that it was enough, and he was going to destroy the earth and all his creation by cause of all of the sin. In every human being, there was only evil in his or her hearts so he will wash it away (Genesis 6:5-7). Due to Adam and Eve’s mistake all humanity paid the price, we were condemned to suffer generation to generation with evilness in our hearts. The Original Sin was what separated God from humanity. It would have been a totally different story if that did not happen.
The Dichotomy of the Human Beings in Genesis The creation of the world and humankind by God was far from a straightforward process in the Book of Genesis. The first chapter chronicles the six days of creation, starting with light on day one and ending with man on the sixth day. Through Chapter 2, there is plenty of ambiguity in the verses, but the world is still free from most explicit problems and conflict. Man had been given a wife as a suitable helpmate, and they seemed destined to innocently and ignorantly maintain the Garden of Eden. However, in Chapter 3, the man and woman were convinced by the serpent to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
To understand why an individual may think Shakespeare stole from the Bible, it is important to comprehend the extent of the similarities between MacBeth and Genesis. In Genesis, the readers are introduced to a serpent, along with Adam and Eve. It is common knowledge that God had forbidden Adam and Eve to eat from the Tree of Knowledge without a solid explanation. While Eve is away from her husband, the serpent approaches her and immediately begins convincing her to eat from the Tree of Knowledge. Despite being told not to, Eve chose to do as the serpent said and ate from the tree.
God stated to them “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die.”(Genesis 2.16-17). Going against god's will Adam and Eve demonstrates that disgusting part of human nature that is betrayal. By betraying god's will and listening to that manipulative snake that tempted them to eat from the tree of knowledge and damned the rest of the human race. 44 BC the year the great Julius Caesar brought many new wonderful thing to Rome
When on his journey to corrupt Adam and Eve, Satan begins to question his reasoning behind following this way of life. He realizes his tragic flaw of vengeance when “he falls into many doubts with himself, and many passions, fear, envy, and despair” (Milton IV. 3-4). He has a moment of weakness when he is on the way to the Garden which allows him to realize he has choose to negatively follow his ambition, vengeance, and pride over his obedience to God. He has another moment of realization when he arrives at the Garden and see’s Adam and Eve for the first time, and “his wonder at their excellent form and happy state” proves he shows signs of remorse (Milton IV.
Christ came after the Fall to bring humans back to the original state, the pre-fallen state, which was a state that Adam and Eve were living in the presence of God; they were so close to God, they could hear “the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden” (Gen.3.8). In the pre-Fallen state, Adam and Eve, like Christ, were both equally the image of God: “God created man in his own image; in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them” (Gen.1.27-28). Rosemary Radford Reuther in her article ,“The Liberation of Christology from Patriarchy,”claims that man (Adam) here should be understood generically. Christ as being the pre-fallen Adam, also should be understood generically. The pre-fallen state, which is egalitarian, is the “original order of nature” (Reuther 145).
