“Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”
The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,
but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden,
and you must not touch it, or you will die.’”
“You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman.
For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God.
You will tread on the lion and the serpent;
you will trample the young lion and the dragon. Psalm 91:13
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made;
without him nothing was made that has been made.
In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John. 1:1-6
