As we look at Genesis 2:16-17, we will be talking about Jesus Christ and Him crucified and how His death on the cross reveals something about the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.
The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil reveals something critically important about human nature. This episode of the One Verse Podcast shows how all of us eat from this tree every single day, and how through His crucifixion, Jesus invites us to stop eating the fruit of this forbidden tree.
The Text of Genesis 2:16-17
And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.
In this discussion of Genesis 2:16-17 we look at:
- Why God placed the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil in the Garden
- What the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil is.
- Why humans cannot handle the fruit of the Knowledge of Good and Evil
- How to avoid eating this forbidden fruit today.
