While we have heard many explanations about the transgression in the Garden of Eden and in most explanations the unrighteous woman, Eve, is blamed for the downfall of her husband, Adam!
However, scripture does not validate these explanations because scripture is not just telling one story. All scripture is telling us His-story or explaining the purpose of Yahweh-Elohim and his son, Yahshua the Messiah, by the use of allegories. So let us examine exactly what Yahshua the Messiah said about the scriptures in John 5:39 “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.”
Yahshua also had this to say about the scriptures in Luke 24:44,
"This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms."
Therefore, it is imperative before we begin any form of Bible Study that we understand who, what, when and where the scriptures are talking about. We can see that the Old Testament which many Christians consider to be irrelevant, Yahshua clearly told us is of the utmost of importance because it is testifying of him!
So let’s now go to the book of Genesis to see what the transgression in the Garden of Eden is telling us about Yahshua the Messiah our savior.
Now we have Yahweh-Elohim creating the first man, Adam, on the sixth day of Moses’ vision atop Mt. Sinai. This explanation will be given in an upcoming article so be sure to continue to visit this website for that. The reason it is called the “First Book of Moses Called Genesis” is Moses is accredited for writing it.
As the Apostle Paul tells us in I Corinthians 15:7
“The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Yahshua from heaven.”
So the second Adam is Yahshua from heaven!
When Adam is created he is put in a deep sleep and when he resurrects Yahweh-Elohim presents him his bride. Please note that the Adam goes into a death (sleep is symbolical of death), buried over in the spirit and then he resurrects and is presented with his bride—or, a death, burial and resurrection!
Also note, that in Genesis 5:2 it states, “Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.”
Just as in any marriage, the woman takes on the sir name of her husband. So when the woman transgresses the commandment and partakes of the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil – her name is Adam! Also, like any modern-day marriage covenant, the husband becomes responsible for any decisions the wife makes; no matter how foolish.
It is stated in I Timothy 2:14, “And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.”
Adam had already been commanded by Yahweh-Elohim in Genesis 2:16-17, “And the Yahweh-Elohim commanded the man, saying, ‘Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.’”
So Adam was given the commandment along with Eve who was still inside Adam as she had not been brought forth from the man when the commandment was given. This would mean that Adam and Eve were fully aware of the commandment and the consequences. However, Adam was not deceived and would now have to make a choice for his bride!
Proving that Yahweh is declaring the end (Revelation) from the beginning (Genesis): Adam, being a type of Yahshua the Messiah, willingly offered up his life for his bride, Eve; in like manner, Yahshua the Messiah will take on sinful flesh, being without sin, to die for sinners.
The great mystery being that in the end Yahshua the Messiah, like the first Adam, willingly offered up his life for the Church, which is his Bride! (Ephesians 5:23-32)
