Our title today is The Garden of Eden. It’s the fourth part in our series, Bible Stories for Adults.
The story of the Garden of Eden challenges our rules for understanding the Bible and demonstrates how they work all at the same time. I gave these rules that we’re going to be using in the first one of this series, and I repeated them in the last one again – episode 3. I’m not going to repeat them all in order here, but we will reference some of them today. If you want to look at all of them, you can go to our Website, liferesource.org and look them up – as a series, risking here being too repetitive, Bible Stories for Adults.
