Adam and Eve summary story in Book of Genesis

Clip art of Adam and Eve

Adam and Eve were the first humans in the Old Testament Book of Genesis.

It is said that they were created by Yahweh (God), who finished the creation of the heavens and the earth.

  • Adam: earth/man
  • Eve: living being/life

Each has such the meanings in Hebrew.

God image

Adam creates the foundation and Eve creates new things.

Perhaps there is such the implications.

It is interesting to note that the "Creation" story written by the Sumerians, a mysterious people in human history, is believed to have been translated into Hebrew.

Isn't it at least a story with some important message hidden in it for mankind?

In this article.

The episode of Adam and Eve's expulsion from the Garden of Eden by God

I tried to summarize this story in a novel (manga) style!

God Creates Adam

Once upon a time, there was a God...

God image

Ah, I'm bored. I've made the world, so maybe it's time to make a human being.

God said this and created a man from the earth.

God image

Well done. I am a genius. Now, what shall we name him? I'm going to name him Adam.

Adam image

Where am I? Who are you?

God image

I am God. Well, I guess you could say I'm your father.

Adam image

Father?

God image

Yes, I am.

God loved Adam very much.

God made Adam promise one thing.

God image

Adam, make a promise to your father. You may eat all the fruits here, but you must not eat the fruits of knowledge of good and evil. For if you eat it, you will soon die.

God told Adam that he must never eat only the fruit of knowledge.

And Adam nodded his head honestly.

Adam image

Oh, really? That's scary... Well, I won't eat it then!

God image

Mm, that's good.

And so Adam lived a healthy life in the Garden of Eden, where plants were abundant.

God Creates Eve

Then one day, God said below.

God image

Adam is a man. He needs to have a wife. ...Okay, let's make a woman!

God made up his mind late at night.

God crept up to Adam as he was sleeping peacefully, took a rib from Adam, put flesh on it, and created a woman.

Adam image

Who is this person?

God image

She is your wife. Get along well with her.

The woman was named Eve.

Adam and Eve lived together in the Garden of Eden.

Adam took Eve on a tour of the Garden of Eden.

Adam image

Eve, my dad told me that I shouldn't eat that fruit of knowledge of good and evil.

Eve image

Really?

Adam image

I heard that if we eat them, we'll die.

Eve image

Wow... That's scary. Okay, I'll try not to eat it.

Eve also nodded in agreement with Adam's words.

But tragedy soon struck...

Seduced by the Serpent

One day, a snake approached Eve when she was alone.

Snake image

Hey, little girl. Have you ever eaten the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil?

Eve image

Oh, hello there. Adam told me not to eat those berries. He said if I ate it, I'd die.

Snake image

Hmmm, you poor little girl who doesn't know anything. You don't know the truth.

Eve image

The truth?

Eve's curiosity grows and grows, even though she knows she shouldn't care.

Eve image

What's true?

Snake image

Eating the fruit of knowledge won't kill you. On the contrary, you'll gain knowledge and you will become like a god.

Eve image

(I wonder if it's true...)

Eve did not know if what the snake said was true or not.

Snake image

If you're interested, give it a try.

The snake offers Eve the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil.

Eve gently put her mouth on the fruit.

Snake image

What do you think? Nothing, right?

The snake said so after confirming that Eve had eaten the fruit of knowledge.

Then, Adam, perhaps worried that Eve would not return anytime soon, came to her.

Adam image

Eve, what are you doing here?

Eve image

Adam, the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil will not kill you even if you eat it. Go ahead, you can eat them too.

Adam image

Oh, really?

Adam nibbled on the fruit of knowledge as Eve suggested.

After both of them ate the fruit of knowledge, they looked at each other again and felt even more ashamed of being naked.

They hastily covered each other's waists with fig leaves that were nearby.

God image

You ate it!

Adam image

Father...!

Seeing the two of them now covering each other's bodies with fig leaves, God realized that they had eaten the fruit of knowledge.

God image

You have not kept My word. Get out of here!

Adam and Eve are expelled

God was furious with the two for not keeping their promise and punished them.

Each of these punishments can be summarized as follows:

  • Adam: hardship of having to labor so hard that his forehead sweats to get food
  • Eve: extreme pain during childbirth
  • Snake: forced to crawl on the ground for the rest of his life

Thus, God gave Adam and Eve garments and banished them both to the east in the Garden of Eden.

God image

Well, well, well...there they go.... I guess the banishment was a bit harsh. But I don't want them to stay in the Garden of Eden and eat the fruit of this tree of life to gain eternal life...

God murmurs as he gazes at the tree growing in the Garden of Eden.

God image

Well, do it properly. Both of you.

God quietly watched over man forever.
