ADAM AND EVE BIBLE LESSONAdam and Eve

Memory Verse: Genesis 2:7

Life Application: God gives me breath.

Bible Text: Genesis 2:7-22

 

 

After God made the earth, He scooped up dust from the ground and used it to form a man. God breathed life into the man and named Him Adam.

Genesis 2:7 NKJV “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.”

     Then God made a garden where Adam could live. It was in a place called Eden. The garden had a river flowing through it and lots of beautiful flowers and trees.

Genesis 2:8-15 NKJV “The Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed.
And out of the ground the Lord God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Now a river went out of Eden to water the garden, and from there it parted and became four riverheads. The name of the first is Pishon; it is the one which skirts the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold. And the gold of that land is good. Bdellium and the onyx stone are there.
The name of the second river is Gihon; it is the one which goes around the whole land of Cush.
The name of the third river is Hiddekel; it is the one which goes toward the east of Assyria. The fourth river is the Euphrates. Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it.”

     After God created Adam, He gave to him dominion over all His creation and the garden of Eden as a home to tend it and keep it. In the center of the garden, God planted two special trees. One was the tree of life. The other was the tree of knowledge of good and evil. The only gave one restriction: that God gave Adam was that he must never eat from this tree. If he did, Adam would know what it meant to participate in evil, and the result would be banishment and death. The death that God was referring to was separation from Him.

Genesis 2:16-17 “And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat;
but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”

     In the garden, God brought all the animals to Adam for him to name them. Adam was lonely because he was alone – there was not a companion for him.

Genesis 2:18-20 NKJV “And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.” Out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name. So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him.”

     God put Adam to sleep and made a woman from a rib from Adam. The woman was named Eve.

Genesis 2:21-22 NKJV “And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.”
