Garden of Eden (Genesis 2:8)

Picture description:
Adam and Eve driven out of Eden Garden
Picture copyright:V. Gilbert and Arlisle F. Beers
Bible Verse:
Garden of Eden has been used by various authors as an image of love
Origin and Application:
Garden of Eden has been used by various authors as an image of love, including William Blake who wrote a poem The Garden of Love. Eden was associated with love as it was where Adam and Eve were created and united, becoming “one bone one flesh”. It is the place where Adam and Eve began to be aware of the awkwardness of being naked after they took the first bite of the forbidden fruit, which may be the reason why the Garden of Eden, carries sexual connotations.
Keywords :
