Genesis Study Part 3

Genesis Study Part 3, episode 9.

Now, we get to the part of the story where things fall apart. What is going on with the two trees in this story? Are they real trees with real fruit that either gives life or causes death? Are they metaphorical in giving us an understanding of something bigger? Are they merely a moral test for Adam and Eve? In the midst of all of this a serpent enters the scene. What is going on with this serpent? Who or what is the serpent? How did he arrive on the scene? And, does this story tell us anything about our own lives….how is this story about Adam and Eve and these two trees related to us?
