Story also available on our translated website: Portuguese
God planted a garden in Eden where He put Adam, the man He had made. There were all sorts of beautiful trees with wonderful fruit in the garden. – Slide 1
The Lord God put Adam in the Garden of Eden as its gardener, to tend and care for it. – Slide 2
In the middle of the garden God put the Tree of Life and a Tree with forbidden fruit.  God told Adam he could eat the fruit of any tree in the garden, except the tree with forbidden fruit. To eat this fruit would open his thinking to both good and bad. And if anyone disobeyed God in this way they could no longer be friends with Him and would die. – Slide 3
God said, ‘It is not good for Adam to live alone. I will make a person to help him.’ So God created a woman who was named Eve. – Slide 4
One day as Eve was walking in the garden a talking snake, who was an enemy of God, tempted her to eat fruit from the forbidden tree. Eve replied, ‘God told us not to eat the fruit of that tree or even touch it as being disobedient would means we could no longer be friends with God.’<br/>‘That’s not true,’ the snake lied. ‘The fruit of that tree will make you very clever, like God.’ <br/>So Eve ignored God’s warning, took some forbidden fruit and ate it. – Slide 5
Eve then gave some of the forbidden fruit to Adam her husband. He also disobeyed God and ate it. – Slide 6
As soon as they had eaten the forbidden fruit, they knew about good and bad things. They felt ashamed and sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves as they were naked. – Slide 7
Then they hid from God as they had done wrong. But God called out, ‘Where are you? Did you eat the fruit that I told you not to eat?’<br/> Adam blamed Eve for giving him the fruit and Eve blamed the snake for tricking her. – Slide 8
God then punished the snake and told him he would have to crawl along the ground on his belly. He told Eve that women would have troubles and pain when children were born. God told Adam that weeds and thorns would grow and make it hard to grow plants and food in the ground. People would live but also die. God made clothes out of animal skins for Adam and Eve to wear. – Slide 9
As they had been disobedient they would no longer be able to meet with God. God sent them both out of the Garden of Eden and made them work hard to grow food. He put a living creatures and a flaming sword to stop anyone from coming near the tree that gives life. – Slide 10
