CHAPTER 3, VERSE 6


When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.

Always wondered why they had navels depicted since they were created beings.

Meh, most of these are just an excuse to pain and see boobies. Seriously the others have more artistic and spiritual value.

Artists are not theologians.

To tell the story visually—that is, to augment the text—these are the artworks which are available. Clothing did not yet exist.

It’s not about being a theologian, it’s about knowing human form; it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that a created being does not have a mother hence no umbilical/navel. That painting of God giving life to Adam is a hoot; God with a navel?

To: Hebrews 11:6

Before the Fall, they were covered by the Shekinah Glory of God, so their nakedness could not be seen. I wonder why so many artists portray the couple as homely, borderline ugly, with dumpy, flabby bodies? Surely God’s crowning handiwork, created in His own image would have been stunningly beautiful. Any portrayal less than that is an insult to our Creator. The ugliness and dumpiness came AFTER the Fall. Satan’s vandalism.

Now we know what inspired Jimmy Buffet’s song “Cheeseburger in Paradise.”

Looks like there were abundant carbs in Eden. LOL! :-)

Artists mirror the general population, the majority of whom are unregenerated and the still-greater majority of whom are not in close fellowship with the Spirit. For me, the fun lies in finding those who are responsive to Him.

Could—but then it would look contrived.

I like the vivid scene painted by Lucas Cranach the Elder, painted with great precision. Animals featured prominently in the work of a number of German artists during this period, as well as a number of other members of the North Renaissance.

There was an In-and-Out on every corner--but then, as a Bostonian, you wouldn't know about those.
