  1. Why was the serpent so subtil? Answer – This is the character of Satan who inhabited the serpent. We know that Satan is crafty, subtil and a liar. But why? I believe Satan knew what the woman knew, and that was that she was not to eat of that tree. A straight push to get her to disobey God, simply for the act of doing it might not have worked. Even the woman would have possibly put up a fight to such a bold move. But, the serpent ‘beguiled’ Eve. He misled her from performing what would be outright disobedience to God to thinking God was holding something back from her. That she was missing out on something. The serpent tricked and deceived!
  2. Why was Eve not shocked by an animal talking? Answer – Maybe Innocence! Still learning about the creation all around her. She just didn’t know this was odd to have a serpent speak to her. Maybe the animals spoke in some kind of way before sin and the Fall. Nevertheless, the Bible does not say Eve was taken back in any way by a talking serpent. Baalam’s donkey spoke and I believe God did that. Was Satan able to mimic some sounds (through the serpent) like Man’s speech to talk and deceive Eve? Find out in heaven!
  3. What might be the main reason Eve ate the forbidden fruit? Answer – I believe the answer is in these verses Gen. 3:5 “… then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” Gen 3:6 “…and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.”  The woman knew the tree was good for food and nice to look at already before the serpent told her. What moved her to eat was twofold 1. The Lie. “Ye shall not surely die” and 2. “… ye shall be as gods…” I believe the concept that got her attention the most was that she could be like God. Pride! This was what got Satan cast out of heaven and it is exactly what he knew could get the man and his wife cast out of the Garden of Eden. Satan’s wicked desire to take God’s glory, and be worshipped was the same desire he deceived the woman with. Adam simply chose to rebel, and disobey God with eyes wide open and understanding.
  4. What was the multiplied sorrow of the woman? Answer – I don’t think the woman was ever intended to have absolutely ‘no pain’ in childbirth but certainly nothing like is seen today when a woman delivers a child. This pain can last for several hours to days. It can be intense and extended. What should have been a much easier process was now intensified many times. In addition we see that the woman was now to be in subjection to the man and not equal in their ruling capacity. The woman was now to humble herself and her wishes and affections would always be to him.
  5. Why was Eve called the mother of all living when no one was born yet? Answer – Adam named Eve and he had certainly heard God when He was talking to the serpent and pronouncing his judgment in verse 15 of chapter 3. The enmity that would be between the serpent’s seed and the woman’s. Also Adam heard of the judgment on Eve of the multiplied sorrows in childbirth. Adam puts two and two together! He knows the creation was to multiply and fill the earth.
  6. What animals were slain to provide clothing for Adam and Eve? Answer – The Bible doesn’t actually tell us what kind of animal was slain but we can make some informed conclusions. I believe they were lambs because it is the lamb that was the sacrifice for sin throughout the Bible. In John 1:29 we are told that Jesus is the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world. Under the Law it was the lamb that was for a sin offering Lev.4:32 And if he bring a lamb for a sin offering, he shall bring it a female without blemish. Genesis is a book of beginnings and here we see the beginning of blood being shed and the innocent for the guilty dying or being sacrificed. The lambs are being slain and their blood shed to provide skins to cover the man and his wife. We see a type in the Garden of the Lord Jesus Christ the Lamb of God slain from the foundation of the world.
  7. Why were Adam and Eve banished from the Garden? Answer – Gen. 3:22  And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:  The clearest and simplest answer is given to us in that if man was to eat of the tree of life he would live forever in a fallen state. Man’s eyes were now opened to understand good and evil which means innocence has been lost. Man would only get worse and worse as the destroying power of sin came to fruition. But, if he was to live forever in this state he could not occupy heaven but forever be in a state of corruption in his flesh. Adam and Eve had to bring sacrifices to atone for their sin as they taught their children later.

Mark 16:15 "And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature."
