  • April on Matthew 24:38
    Genesis 3;6 I just noticed that the scripture says Eve gave to Her husband who was with her.

    Because the serpent was talking to Eve , what does the scripture mean when it says , Adam was with her when she gave him the fruit?

    Thank you

    April, Adam, I believe, was not with Eve when the serpent was talking with her. The serpent was talking to Even when she was alone. Adam was somewhere else in the Garden. But Eve took the fruit and then then gave the fruit to her husband who possibly just walked up to her after she took the fruit. The Bible indicates that Adam knew what he was doing, in 1 Timothy 2:14 "And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression." Adam knew that Eve had sinned and because he loved her he decided to join her in whatever punishment she incurred.
