Jesse Tree: The Story of Leaving Eden

Genesis also tells a story about Adam and Eve and the beautiful Garden of Eden where they lived.  God's own breath had given life to human beings. Fruit trees in the garden provided all the food they needed, and they were very happy.  But a sneaky serpent tempted them to disobey God. One tree grew fruit that God had forbidden them to eat, but the serpent told them it was the most delicious fruit in the garden, and besides, if they ate it they would gain knowledge of good and evil, and be just like God.  So Adam and Eve ate the fruit.  They knew right away that they had done a very bad thing--and so did God.  Because of their disobedience, they had to leave the Garden.  

Genesis 2:4-3:24
