wouldn't eating from the tree involve touching it at some point? jus a question...perhaps adam assumed that it would be best to tell eve not to touch the tree at all to keep her from from it and wanting to snack. maybe adam didn't touch the tree at all and told eve that and she assumed that touching it meant death as much as eating from the tree. jus a thought...or 2
Well i thought about that but for Adam to have told Eve that she couldnt touch the tree or she would die would mean that Adam lied and therefore sinned first, which we know isnt the case.No, i think that because God didnt specificlly tell Eve then she just read more into it as we do when people tell us something and we tend to add to it unless we hear it from the horses mouth so to speak.
agreed...off to lunch :)
