God created the Garden of Eden as their home and in it were all types of trees that God told Adam and Eve they were allowed to eat from; all except one, the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.One day as Adam and Eve were in the garden, the serpent, which was the craftiest of all the creatures that God had made tempted Eve into eating of the fruit from this tree and she shared it with her husband who was with her.
