Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Genesis 2:25


2:25 They were both naked, they needed no cloaths for defence against cold or heat, for neither could be injurious to them: they needed none for ornament. Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Nay, they needed none for decency, they were naked, and had no reason to be ashamed. They knew not what shame was, so the Chaldee reads it. Blushing is now the colour of virtue, but it was not the colour of innocency.

    Christine, when we begin our journey with the Lord we turn to ask many questions, but that is okay because we want to know all about God at a go which is not possible by no means. However as we continue steadily searching Him through scripture God reveals Himself and we get most of our questions answered by the Word of God and we become satisfied and friends of God and not angry with God.

    We use Sunday as God's holy day because that's the day Jesus was resurrected from the dead. The Jews and 7th Day Adventist church use Saturday as the Sabbath, God's holy day. Does it matter which day? I don't think so, my Lord and Savior arose Sunday from the dead, so I worship God that day. If others do it Saturday that's their way. Have u heard of a circumsized heart that makes days immaterial.

    Christine; How are you not afraid to reproach God's character? Wasn't that the very thing that the woman sinned in, when she was beguiled by slandering God? That kind of thinking comes right from the devil! As to why God created the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil; there's a LOT of things we have to learn from God, what is His purpose in them! God made everything VERY GOOD! Men have corrupted!
  • Christine
    Why did he put the tree of knowledge of good and evil for in the first place? If we were made of his image why not make us exactly like him knowing what he expected us to know? If we have evil in this world it was god choice. He decided to create everything good and bad.

    Martha: Saturday is The Day of Rest. Verse 2-3. Sunday is The First Day
