Table of contents



So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life Genesis 3: Adam and Eve were banished from Eden as punishment for their sin. Why were they driven out? Why did God place the guard at the Garden of Eden to keep Adam and Eve from eating of the tree of life? Who were the cherubim placed to keep them from reentering Eden?

Garden Of Eden

Why were they kept away? There are several possible answers. God's Mercy The banishment from the Garden was an act of God's mercy. Eating from the tree would not have reversed the effects of their sin. It would not have solved their problem, it would have sealed their fate.

For some unexplained reason, eating of the tree of life would have doomed them to an eternal state of sin. Therefore, God in His mercy kept them out of the Garden once they were banished. Symbolic Value Some commentators believe that the tree would also have had symbolic value to Adam and Eve.

The tree would have symbolized the life they would have had if they had remained obedient. By God preventing them from eating from the tree, this would symbolize death, disobedience and the impossibility of returning to paradise. False Notion In addition, continued eating of the tree could have given Adam and Eve false notions. They may have believed they could perpetuate their physical life or, in some way, contribute to their own salvation.

Since this was now impossible, God had to banish them from the presence of the tree. Cherubim This is the first biblical mention of the cherubim. The cherubim are spiritual beings whose form is unknown. They symbolize the presence of God. Two cherubim made out of gold were placed on top of the Ark of the Covenant. The cherubim kept the couple from eating from the tree of life after they had sinned.

The flaming sword, going in every direction, speaks of the wrath of God that will hit everything in its path. Nothing can escape it. East The guard was placed at the east of the Garden of Eden and humankind was sent away in an easterly direction. This geographical movement of humankind is important in the Book of Genesis. Later in Genesis, we find east referring to the direction of the city of Babylon The return from the east is the return to the Promised Land There is no reason to assume the Garden or the trees still exist.

Adam and Eve

Over time, the Garden would have degenerated and the trees died. There would have been no further need for the cherubim to guard the entrance seeing that the trees no longer existed. The main elements in the story of the Fall included a tree, a curse, thorns, sweat and death.

Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made. This is the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens, before any plant of the field was in the earth and before any herb of the field had grown.

Garden of Eden - Wikipedia

Critics point out that Genesis 1 declares that plants were created on Day 3, while man was created on Day 6. Why then, do we read in Genesis 2 that there were no plants because man had not yet been formed? The key is to read Genesis 1 and Genesis 2 in context. This is clear by the entire context of Genesis Chapter 2, and the fact that the Garden had not yet been established. He hadn't yet created man who was to "tend and keep it" Genesis 2: In the Garden of Eden, planted by God for man, we read that God created every animal from the dust of the ground and brought them to Adam to name.

Critics cite this as a contradiction, because we read that God created animals on Days 5 and 6 of Creation Week before the garden was planted by God. And the gold of this land is good; there are bdellium and cornelian stone. And the name of the second river is Gihon, which is the circumnavigator of the land of Cush.

In the Talmud and the Jewish Kabbalah , [36] the scholars agree that there are two types of spiritual places called "Garden in Eden". The first is rather terrestrial, of abundant fertility and luxuriant vegetation, known as the "lower Gan Eden". The second is envisioned as being celestial, the habitation of righteous, Jewish and non-Jewish, immortal souls, known as the "higher Gan Eden".

The Rabbanim differentiate between Gan and Eden. Adam is said to have dwelt only in the Gan , whereas Eden is said never to be witnessed by any mortal eye. According to Jewish eschatology , [37] [38] the higher Gan Eden is called the "Garden of Righteousness". It has been created since the beginning of the world, and will appear gloriously at the end of time.

The righteous dwelling there will enjoy the sight of the heavenly chayot carrying the throne of God. Each of the righteous will walk with God, who will lead them in a dance. Its Jewish and non-Jewish inhabitants are "clothed with garments of light and eternal life, and eat of the tree of life" Enoch 58,3 near to God and His anointed ones. In modern Jewish eschatology it is believed that history will complete itself and the ultimate destination will be when all mankind returns to the Garden of Eden.

There are several mentions of "the Garden" in the Qur'an 2: The narrative mainly surrounds the resulting expulsion of Hawwa and Adam after they were tempted by Shaitan. Despite the Biblical account, the Quran mentions only one tree in Eden, the tree of immortality, which God specifically claimed it was forbidden to Adam and Eve. Some exegesis added an account, about Satan , disguised as a serpent to enter the Garden, repeatedly told Adam to eat from the tree, and eventually both Adam and Eve did so, resulting in disobeying God.

It is recorded in the Doctrine and Covenants that Adam blessed his posterity there and that he will return to that place at the time of the final judgement [46] [47] in fulfillment of biblical prophecy.

Kimball , and George Q. Cannon , taught that the Garden of Eden itself was located in nearby Jackson County, Missouri , [49] but there are no surviving first-hand accounts of that doctrine being taught by Joseph Smith himself. The Garden of Eden motifs most frequently portrayed in illuminated manuscripts and paintings are the "Sleep of Adam" "Creation of Eve" , the "Temptation of Eve" by the Serpent, the " Fall of Man " where Adam takes the fruit, and the "Expulsion". The idyll of "Naming Day in Eden" was less often depicted. Michelangelo depicted a scene at the Garden of Eden in the Sistine Chapel ceiling.
