QQC--Eden

Quirks, Queries and Commentary--Genesis 2 and 3

Consider the whole idea of work. Some people have the idea that work is a dirty word and there certainly won't be any of it to do in heaven but look at Genesis 2:15--"The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it." (NIV) God had work for Adam to do from the very beginning.

Or what about that tree in Eden they weren't supposed to touch. What was the point of having that tree there? To taunt and tantalize? (See Genesis 2:17)

When Adam and Eve discovered they were naked (Genesis 3:7) they sewed fig leaves together. How did they sew? What did they use?

Later, "God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them." (Genesis 3:21 NIV) God killed and skinned animals?
