Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Adam and Eve are credited with committing the first sin on earth in the Garden of Eden. What sin did they commit?

Answer: Ate fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil

With all the perfection and beauty of the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve ate the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. That was the only tree they had been commanded not to eat from by God. This story begins in Genesis 2.
2. In the Garden of Eden, God had given Adam and Eve one command. What did God say would happen to them if they disobeyed his command?

Answer: They would die

"The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. And the LORD God commanded the man, 'You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die.'" Genesis 2:15-17

Many believe this not only means a physical death, but also means a spiritual death or a separation from the presence of God.
3. In the Garden of Eden, the woman was the first to disobey the one command God had given. Who or what encouraged her disobedience?

Answer: The Serpent

"Then the LORD God said to the woman, 'What is this you have done?'
The woman said, 'The serpent deceived me, and I ate.'" Genesis 3:13

Jesus, in teaching about Satan and his deceptive tactics, said, "You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies." (John 8:44)
4. Although it isn't mentioned specifically in Genesis, what is the true identity of this serpent in the Garden of Eden, as indicated in Revelation 12:9?

Answer: Both of these

"The great dragon was hurled down - that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him." - Revelation 12:9

This refers to the belief that Lucifer, also known as Satan, was originally an angel that led a third of the angels in heaven in a rebellion against God.
5. After Adam and Eve disobeyed God's command, they both realized they were naked, and they made coverings for themselves from fig leaves. How did they make these coverings? (New International Version)

Answer: Sewed them

"When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves." Genesis 3:6-7

The fact that these coverings were sewn indicate that Adam and Eve had developed skills above just rudimentary abilities.
6. How did God say he realized that Adam and Eve were disobedient to his command?

Answer: They told him they were naked

"Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden. But the LORD God called to the man, 'Where are you?'
"He answered, 'I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.'
And he said, 'Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?'" - Genesis 3:8-11

What a heartbreaking moment this must have been for God and all his creation.
7. God cursed two things because of Adam's and Eve's disobedience to the command he had given them in the Garden of Eden. One was the serpent. What else did he specifically say was cursed, in the New International Version?

Answer: The ground

"So the LORD God said to the serpent, 'Because you have done this, Cursed are you above all the livestock and all the wild animals! You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life.'" - Genesis 3:14

"To Adam he said, 'Because you listened to your wife and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, 'You must not eat of it,' Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat of it all the days of your life.'" - Genesis 3:17
8. In the midst of the curse placed on the serpent in the Garden of Eden, there is also this promise. "And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel." (Genesis 3:15) Who do Christians believe will crush the serpent's head?

Answer: Jesus Christ

This passage of scripture is believed by many Jews and Christians to be the first prophecy in the Bible concerning a coming Messiah. Many Jewish people still await the coming of this Messiah. Christians believe Jesus Christ was born 2000 years ago in Israel and lived and taught among the Jewish people, but was crucified and died. All of this was God's plan to bring forgiveness for sin and to restore mankind's relationship with God. Christians also believe that Jesus rose from the dead and ascended to heaven, and that he will come again at the end of the age to judge the living and the dead.
9. After God had discovered Adam and Eve's disobedience of his command, why did he say he was banishing them from the Garden of Eden?

Answer: So they wouldn't eat from the tree of life

"And the LORD God said, 'The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.' So the LORD God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken." - Genesis 3:22-23

While being banished from the garden surely was a punishment for Adam and Eve, it wasn't the specific reason they were banished.
10. After banishing Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden, on what side of the garden did God place cherubim and a flaming sword (New International Version)?

Answer: East side

"After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life." - Genesis 3:24

Jesus told the church at Ephesus, "...To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God." - Revelations 2:7
