The Garden of Eden (Genesis 2:8-17) Commentary

God created all that was necessary for man in abundance, giving him all kinds of trees bearing all kinds of fruits. Only one tree He forbid.  The tree of knowledge of good and evil was a gateway to sin. God has never been shy about putting men to a test of faithful obedience. God does not forbid us anything that is good for us. God freely offers us the Tree of Life, Our Lord Jesus. We are free to eat of this fruit, free to accept this eternal paradise. If we choose Jesus, we chose life. If we choose sin, we choose death.
