Adam and Eve's Eviction Notice
20 The man named his wife Eve, because she was the mother
of all living. 21 And the LORD God made garments of skins for
the man and for his wife, and clothed them. 22 Then the LORD God
said, "See, the man has become like one of us, knowing good
and evil; and now, he might reach out his hand and take also from
the tree of life, and eat, and live forever"-- 23 therefore
the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the
ground from which he was taken. 24 He drove out the man; and at
the east of the garden of Eden he placed the cherubim, and a sword
flaming and turning to guard the way to the tree of life.
Key Master and Gate Keeper
Even though God kicks them out of the garden, God makes them
clothes. That's kind of thoughtful really. God still loves them,
even though they are bone heads. However, they still have to move
out of the house (garden) and get a job. Worse, they can't go
back. This actually seems like a metaphor to family life from
just about any period in time. However it appears poor choices
have cost Adam and Eve a very close relationship with God and
a nice environment to live in. Some will suggest that this also
introduces death into the equation, but I see nothing that indicates
that they had eternal life to start with, because the tree of
life in the garden is never really explained. So here is a story
that can be viewed as humanities fall from grace (as well as for
serpents) or as God still caring for and loving his creation even
though they can't seem to use their new-found reason or knowledge
all that well.
