It Always Irked Me
Look at this picture you can just hear Adam saying: I didn’t know what it was God, Eve gave it to me.
The first reading for November 8, 2020, is from Genesis: The tempting of Eve with the fruit of Knowledge. It has always irked me that Eve is put up as the tempter, when it was the snake who did the tempting.
In the story Eve is not seeking out the fruit the serpent has come to tell her of all the wonderful things the fruit can do. It’s an outside influence that creates doubt in the woman’s mind along with curiosity.
